Ring them Bells - Bob Dylan

Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard
Bob Dylan
Ring them Bells (1989)
(Bob Dylan)
From: "Oh Mercy"
Following the main vocal line, Dylan plays a lot of changes on the piano on
his recording that are hard to do on a guitar. I skipped most of them for
this tab and stuck to the underlying chord (mostly C).

[C]Ring them bells, ye heathen
From the [F/A]city that dreams[C]
[C]Ring them bells from the sanctuaries
?Cross the [F/G]valleys and streams
For they?re [F]deep and they?re [C]wide
And the [C]world?s on its side[F]
And [C]time is running backwards
And [F/G]so is the [C]bride
| F/A F/A G/B | C | % |
[C]Ring them bells St. Peter
Where the [F/A]four winds blow[C]
[C]Ring them bells with an iron hand
So the [F/G]people will know
Oh it?s [F]rush hour [C]now
On the [C]wheel and the plow[F]
And the [C]sun is going down
Upon the [F/G]sacred [C]cow
| F/A F/A G/B | C | % |
[C]Ring them bells Sweet Martha
For the [F/G]poor man?s [C]son
[C]Ring them bells so the world will know
That [G]God is one
Oh the [F]shepherd is a[C]sleep
Where the [C]willows [F]weep
And the [C]mountains are filled
With [F/G]lost [C]sheep
Ring them [Am]bells for the blind and the [C]deaf
Ring them [Am]bells for all of us who are [C]left
Am Abaug
Ring them bells for the chosen few
C/G (ch)D9/F#(/ch)
Who will judge the many when the game is through
Ring them [F(maj7)]bells, for the time that [C/E]flies
For the child that [Dm7]cries
When innocence [F/G]dies
[C]Ring them bells St. Catherine
From the [F/G]top of the room[C]
[C]Ring them from the fortress
For the [F/G]lilies that bloom
Oh the [F]lines are [C]long
And the [C]fighting is [F]strong
And they?re [C]breaking down the distance
Between [F/G]right and [C]wrong
