INTRO: G C G D  C G D G C G

G                     C          G                 C
Far between sundown's finish and midnight's broken toll
   G                 C        D       G       C G
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
G                    C             G              C
As majestic bells of bolts, struck shadows in the sounds
G                 C         D       G       C G
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing


D                D7              G                  C
Flashing for the warriors, whose strength is not to fight
G                C               Am              D
Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
    G              C         G              C
For each and every underdog, soldier in the night
       G              C         D       G       C G
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing


G                           C            G              C
Even though a cloud's white curtain in a far off corner flashed
    G                    C        D      G      C G
The hypnotic, splattered mist was slowly lifting
G                    C                   G                 C
Electric bolts still struck like arrows, fired but for the ones
   G                  C       D         G       C G
Condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting


D               D7                       G                  C
Tolling for the searching ones, on their speechless seeking trail
    G                C                Am         D
The lonesome hearted lovers, with too personal a tale
        G              C              G               C
And for each unharmful gentle soul misplaced inside a jail
       G              C         D       G       C G
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing


INTERLUDE: C   G   D
           Ohh ohh ohh
           C   G   D   G   C G
           Ohh ohh ohh ohh
           

G               C                G                 C   
Starry eyed and laughing, as I recall when we were caught
           G                 C        D         G     C G
Trapped by no track of hours for they hanged suspended
G                       C            G                     C
As we listened one last time, and we watched with one last look
G                        C        D       G    C G
Spellbound and swallowed 'til the tolling ended


D               D7                G                C
Tolling for the aching ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
    G                   C                 Am                  D
The countless confused, misused, accused, strung-out ones and worse
    G             C             G             C
For every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
       G              C         D       G       C G
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing


OUTRO: C   G   D
       Ohh ohh ohh
       C   G   D   G   C G
       Ohh ohh ohh ohh
