Gordon Lightfoot - Ring Them Bells

## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C to Am ##

CAPO: 4th Fret

[INTRO:] C  Am  C

[VERSE 1:]
Ring them bells ye heathen, from the city that dreams 
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries, 'cross the valleys and streams 
            F                    C                              F
For they're deep and they're wide and the world's on it's side 
    C                               G         C       Am   C
And time is a-running backwards and so is the bride

[VERSE 2:]

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

[VERSE 3:]

Ring them bells sweet Martha, for the poor man's son 
Ring them bells so the world will know that god is none 
        F                 C                        F
For the shepherd is asleep where the willows weep 
        C                         G          C 
And the mountains are filled with lost sheep

          Am                           C
Ring them bells, for the blind and the deaf 
     ~    Am                       C
Ring them bells, for those who are left 
     ~    Am                    C/G
Ring them bells, for the chosen few 
                   F                      D
Who will judge the many, when the game is through
          F                        C
Ring them bells, for the time that flies 
                  Dm7                   G
For the child who cries, when innocence dies

[VERSE 4:]
Ring them bells, St. Catherine, from the top of the roof 
Ring them from the fortress for the lilies that bloom 
        F              C                        F
For the lines that are long and the fighting is strong 
            C                                  G         C
And they're breaking down the distance between right and wrong

[OUTRO:] G  F  G  F  C  G  C
