Written by Bob Dylan. This is legend, 'Boss' Bruce Springsteen's version.



G                     D           G                 C

Well, far between sundown's finish and midnight's broken toll
G                 C        D       G

We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashin'
D            G              C

As majestic bells of boats struck shadows in the sun;
G             D          riff   G

Sayin', it may be the chimes of freedom flashin'




D                               G
Flashin' for the warriors whose strength is not to fight;
C   G               Am              D
Flashin' for the refugees on their unarmed road of flight.
G              D        G              C

And for each and every underdog soldier in the night
G              C         D       G         GC D G

We gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'



              D             G          C
Well, in the city's melted furnace unexpectedly we watched
 G           D      riff       G           D

With faces hidden here while the walls were tightenin'
G           D             G                  C

As the echo of the wedding bells before the blowing rain;
 G    D     riff   G

Dissolved into the wild bales of lightnin'




D                      G

Yeah, tollin' for the rebel, yeah, tollin' for the raked
C               G             Am            D

Tollin' for the luckless, the abandoned and forsaked.
G     D        G                     C

Yeah, tollin' for the outcasts burnin' constantly at stakes
G              C         D       G 
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'

G


Oh yeah! (instrumental solo)



D             G          C
And then through a cloud-like curtain in a far off corner flashed
G           D      riff       G           D

There's a hypnotic, splattered mist was slowly liftin'
 G           D             G                  C

Well, electric light still struck like arrows
G    D        riff      G
Fired but for the ones condemned to drift or else be kept from driftin'



D                                                        G
Well, tollin' for the searching ones on this speechless, secret trail

C               G             Am            D

For the lonesome haunted lovers with too personal a tale.
G       D        G                     C

And for each young heart for each channeled soul misplaced inside a jail
 G              C         D       G        
riff G

Yeah, we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'



D             G          C

Well, starry eyed and laughin' I recall when we were caught,
G           D      riff       G           D

Trapped by an old track of vows for the hands suspended
C   G               Am              D

As we listened one last time, and we watched with one last look
G              D        G              C

Spellbound and swallowed "Has the tollin' ended?"



D                                                        G

Yeah, tollin' for the achin' ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
G       D        G                     C

For the countless, confused, accused, misused strung out ones at worst.
G              C         D       G        
riff G

And for every hung out person in the whole wide universe

We gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'




Uh uh uh... (to end)


Enjoy!
