Although Dylan plays it on the piano I suppose you could play it on the guitar
aswell if you listen to it and get the rythm. This song is from Dylan's 1989 album 'Oh Mercy'.

Intro: Am, Am, F,  C Am Am
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
          F    C   Am
Between right and wrong.


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

Enjoy, Anyway!

Sorry, i can't quite grasp this. I believe the key is C#, so this may be correct, only with a capo. Do you know where the capo should be placed ?

This can't be correct wherever the capo - the verses start with a major chord and this tab falsely claims it's a minor.

This is nothing like the song.
