Ring Them Bells  Bob Dylan

[Am]Ring them bells, ye heathen

From the city that dreams,
[F]Ring them bells from the sanctuaries

Cross the valleys and streams,
[C]For they're deep and they're wide

And the world's on its side
[Am]And time is running backwards

And so is the bride.

[Am]Ring them bells St. Peter

Where the four winds blow,
[F]Ring them bells with an iron hand

So the people will know.
[C]Oh it's rush hour now

On the wheel and the plow
[Am]And the sun is going down

Upon the sacred cow.

[Am]Ring them bells Sweet Martha,

For the poor man's son,
[F]Ring them bells so the world will know

That God is one.
[Am]Oh the shepherd is asleep

Where the willows weep
[F]And the mountains are filled

With lost sheep.

[Am]Ring them bells for the blind and the deaf,
[F]Ring them bells for all of us who are left,
[Am]Ring them bells for the chosen few

Who will judge the many when the game is through.
[Am]Ring them bells, for the time that flies,
[Am]For the child that cries

When innocence dies.

[Am]Ring them bells St. Catherine

From the top of the room,
[F]Ring them from the fortress

For the lilies that bloom.
[Am]Oh the lines are long

And the fighting is strong
[C]And they're breaking down the distance
Between ri[F]ght a[C]nd w[Am]rong.

Play intro solo then song is finished. Sorry If I'm wrong.

Enjoy, Anyway!
