The disk jockey said that this song 1 million in the first week of release.  Wow!

    BELLEAU WOOD            Garth Brooks
D                                        G                 D
Oh the snowflakes fell in silence Over Belleau Wood that night
         G                 D                 A
For a Christmas truce has been declared By both sides of the fight
       D                               G
As we lay there in our trenches The silence broke in two
                      D        A                D
By a german soldier singing A song that we all knew
     D                                 G               D
Tho' I did not know the language The song was Silent Night
         G              D             A
Then I heard my buddy whisper All is calm all is bright
          D                                   G
Then the fear and doubt surrounded me As I'd die if I was wrong
                       D          A              D
But I stood up I my trench And I began to sing along
        A                             G                    D
Then across the frozen battlefield Another's voice joined in
       G               D             G             A
Until one by one each man became A singer of the flame
         D                           G                     D
Then I thought that  was I dreaming For right there in my sites
G                  D
Stood the german soldier 'neath the falling flakes of white
         D                                  G
And he raised his hand and smiled at me As if he seemed to say
                       D              A             D
Here's hoping we both live to see us find a better way
 A                                               G            D
Then the devil's clock struck midnight and the skies lit up again
             G              D               G             A
And the battlefield where heaven stood is blown to hell again
          D                            G
But for just one fleeting moment The answer seemed so clear
               D                     A               D
Heaven's not beyond the clouds It's just beyond the fear
      G            D                       A            D
No heaven's not beyond the clouds it's for us to find here.
