Chimes Of Freedom

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

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

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

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

[G]Starry eyed and [C]laughing, as I re[G]call when we were [C]caught
[G]Trapped by no track of [C]hours for they [D]hanged sus[G]pended[C]    [G]    
[G]And we listened one last [C]time, and we [G]watched with one last [C]look
[G]Spellbound and swallowed [C]till the [D]tolling [G]ended[C]    [G]    

[D]Tolling for the [D7]aching ones whose [G]wounds cannot be [C]nursed
For the [G]countless confused, ac[C]cused, misused, [Am]srung-out ones and [D]worse
And for [G]every hung-up [C]person in the [G]whole wide uni[C]verse
And we [G]gazed upon the [C]chimes of [D]freedom [G]flashing[C]    [G]    

[C]Di di di [G]di di di [D]di [C]di di di [D]di di [G]dum [C]    [G]    

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

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

Even though a cloud’s white curtain in a far off corner flashed
And the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
Electric lights still struck like arrows, fired but for the 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 eyed and laughing, as I recall when we were caught
Trapped by no track of hours for they hanged suspended
And we listened one last time, and we watched with one last look
Spellbound and swallowed till the tolling ended

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

Di di di di di di di di di di di di dum
