It was on NPR and it was a kind of folksy singer bopping allong about peace and love and goodwill to men, and then he didn't stop, he went on for a couple more verses? Anybody know it?

It's the one about the carols and god not sleeping, or yes sleeping as in this version?

Two verses that Longfellow had in his original poem, that are seldom included in the song are:

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
    And with the sound
    The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
    And made forlorn
    The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Joe offer posted the familiar song and then Longfellow's poem, Christmas Bells a few years ago.
