Ring Them Bells Chords
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!

About the artist behind Ring Them Bells Chords:

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, musician, and a poet who has been a major figure in popular music for five decades. Much of Dylan's most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became an informal chronicler and a reluctant figurehead of American unrest. A number of his songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'",[1] became anthems of the anti-war and civil rights movements. His most recent studio album, Modern Times, released on August 29, 2006, entered the U.S. album chart at number one, and that same year was named Album of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine.[2]

Dylan's early lyrics incorporated politics, social commentary, philosophy and literary influences, defying existing pop music conventions and appealing widely to the counterculture. While expanding and personalizing musical styles, he has shown steadfast devotion to many traditions of American song, from folk and country/blues to gospel, rock and roll and rockabilly, to English, Scottish and Irish folk music, and even jazz and swing.[3][4]

Dylan performs with the guitar, keyboard and harmonica. Backed by a changing lineup of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the "Never Ending Tour". Although his accomplishments as performer and recording artist have been central to his career, his songwriting is generally regarded as his greatest contribution.[5]

Over many years, Dylan has been recognized and honored for his songwriting, performing, and recording. His records have earned Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Awards, and he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 1999, Dylan was included in TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century, and in 2004, he was ranked number two in Rolling Stone magazine's list of "Greatest Artists of All Time", second only to The Beatles.[6] In January 1990, Dylan was made a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres by French Minister of Culture Jack Lang; in 2000, he was awarded the Polar Music Prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music;[7] and in 2007, Dylan was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award in Arts in Spain by the Fundación Príncipe de Asturias. He has been nominated several times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.[8][9][10]

In 2008, Dylan was awarded a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."[11] Previous recipients of this award include Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane.[12]
