Ring Them Bells

by Bob Dylan

(D)  (Bm)  (D)  (Bm)

(D) Ring them bells ye heathen from the (Asus) city that (D) dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries, 'cross the (Asus) valleys and streams
For they're (G) deep and they're wide - (D) and the world's on it's (G) side
And (D/F#) time is running backwards and (Asus) so is the (D) bride (Bm) (D)

Ring them bells St. Peter where the four winds blow
Ring them bells with an iron hand so the people will know
Oh it's rush hour now on the wheel of the plow
And the sun is going down upon the sacred cow

Ring them bells sweet Martha for the poor man's son
Ring them bells so the world will know that God is one
For the shepherd is asleep where the willow weep
And the mountains are filled with lost sheep

Ring them (Bm) bells - for the blind and the (D) deaf
Ring them (Bm) bells - for all of us who are (D) left
Ring them (Bm) bells - for the chosen (Bm/A) few
Who will judge the (G) many - when the game is (E) through
Ring them (G) bells - for the time that (D/F#) flies
For the child who (Em7) cries - when innocence (Asus) dies

Ring them bells St. Catherine from the top of the roof
Ring them from the fortress for the lilies that bloom
For the lines are long and the fighting is strong
And they're breaking down the distance between right and wrong

(A)  (G)  (A)  (G)  (D/F#)  (Asus)  (D)
