                Do You Hear What I Hear? – Bob Dylan
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Written by: Noël Regney/Gloria Shayne Baker
From: "Christmas in the Heart" (2009)

Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

In the last verse the Dylan version changes to Bb. 
When I play this song alone, however, I usually don’t change the key.

I added a version in C below, which is my favourite key for singing
(and easier to play, too!).
