Intro : G   C   C/B   D   D4 
        C   D   G   ( /B   /C   /D   /G  ...)
 
 
 G Far between the sundown's  C9  finish
and  G midnights broken  C9  toll
we  G  ducked inside
the  C9 doorway as th D under went cras G hing    B      C      D      G 
 
 
As  G majestic bells of  C9  bolts
struck  G shadows in the  C9  sounds
 G seeming to be the  C9 chimes of  D freedom  G  flashing
 
 
 D  Flashing for the warriors
whose  G strength is  C9 not to  G  fight
 C9 flashing for the  C9/B  refugees
of the  Am unarmed road of  D  flight
and for  G each and every  C9  underdog
 G soldier in the  C9  night
and we  G gazed upon the  C9 chimes of  D freedom  G flashing B      C      D      G 
 
 
There are cities melted furnace
unexpectedly we watched
with faces hidden as the walls were tightening
 
 
As the echo of the wedding bells
before the blowing rain
dissolved into the bells of the lightning
 
 
Tolling for the rebel
tolling for the rake
tolling for the luckless
they are bound and damned forsaked
tolling for the outcasts
burning constantly at stake
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
Through the mad mystic hammering
and the wild ripping hail
the sky cracked its farms in naked wonder
 
 
As the clanging of the church bells
blew far into the breeze
leaving only bells of lightning and its thunder
 
 
Striking for the gentle
striking for the kind
striking for the guardians and protectors of the mind
and the poet and painter
far behind his rightful time
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
In the wild cathedral evening
the rain unravelled tales
for a disrobed faceless farms of no position
 
 
Tolling for the tongues
with no place to bring their thoughts
all down and taken for granted situations
 
 
Tolling for the deaf and blind
tolling for the mute
for a mistreated maidless mother, a mistitled prostitute
for the misdemeanor outlaw
chained and cheated by pursuit
and we gaze upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
Even though the cloud's white curtain
in a far off corner flowered
and the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
 
 
Electric light still struck like arrows
fired but further ones
condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting
 
 
Tolling for the searching ones
on their speechless seeking trail
for the lonesome hearted lovers with too personal a tale
and for each unharmful gentle soul
misplaced inside a jail
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
 
Starry eyes and laughing
as I recall when we were caught
trapped ours for they hang suspended
 
 
As we listened one last time
and we watched with one last look
spellbound and swallowed 'til the tolling ended
 
 
Tolling for the aching
whose wounds cannot be nursed
or the countless confused accused misused
strung out ones and worse
and for every hung up person
in the whole wide universe
and we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
 
dee dee...
