Chord Sheet Maker Online is intended for "chords only" sheets, so adding lyrics alongside the chords is not supported.

Adding the lyrics

That is very straightforward. There is a button lyrics edit which takes you to a form where you just add the song text.

There is nothing special here. The font size is automatically adjusted to the maximum size. And that's it.

Side by side view

On a large screen you can display the lyrics sheet alongside the chords sheet.

That might be useful for practicing songs.

You can set your preferred order, lyrics-chart or chart-lyrics, in the general user settings.

See as an example Amazing Grace


If you add your charts to compilations you can create different variants of these.

See as an example a compilation of some Traditionals.

Copyright concerns

Despite the fact that you can literally find any lyrics in multiple places on the internet, it is not allowed to publish any text without permission from the copyright holder.

As a result, lyrics are only shown for some traditional (public domain) songs on this website.

But of course within your user account you can add lyrics as you like.
