Chimes of Freedom  Bruce Springsteen  Live version
Tabbed by d.tomasetti (28.11.2011)

I think this version is more accurate than the other on the net. Enjoy it!




INTRO :  G/B C G/B C  G/B C D G(C) G(C) x2


          G/B                C         G/B               C                     
Well, far between sundown's finish and midnight's broken toll
   G/B                C        D       G
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashin'
   G/B               C            G/B            C
As majestic bells of boats struck shadows in the sun;
G/B                   C         D       G
Sayin', it may be the chimes of freedom flashin'



D                               G/B         C      G/B
Flashin' for the warriors whose strength is not to fight;
C                                  G               D
Flashin' for the refugees on their unarmed road of flight.
        G/B             C        G/B           C
And for each and every underdog soldier in the night
G/B               C         D       G         
We gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'



             G/B            C          G/B          C
Well, in the city's melted furnace unexpectedly we watched
     G/B                C        D           G           
With faces hidden here while the walls were tightenin'
       G/B         C             G/B                C
As the echo of the wedding bells before the blowing rain;
 G/B               C    D        G
Dissolved into the wild bales of lightnin'




D                                  G/B      C      G/B
Yeah, tollin' for the rebel, yeah, tollin' for the raked
C                              G               D
Tollin' for the luckless, the abandoned and forsaked.
      G/B              C               G/B           C     
Yeah, tollin' for the outcasts burnin' constantly at stakes
        G/B           C         D       G
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'




Oh yeah! 
C G/B D C G/B D G(C9)G(C9)



         G/B                  C              G/B          C         
And then through a cloud-like curtain in a far off corner flashed
          G/B                  C        D      G          
There's a hypnotic, splattered mist was slowly liftin'
      G/B                   C 
Well, electric light still struck like arrows
G/B               C    G/B                   C       D         G    
Fired but for the ones condemned to drift or else be kept from driftin'



      D                                      G/B         C      G/B
Well, tollin' for the searching ones on this speechless, secret trail
        C                                G          D
For the lonesome haunted lovers with too personal a tale.
        G/B                       C              G/B                C        
And for each young heart for each channeled soul misplaced inside a jail
           G/B           C         D       G
Yeah, we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'



      G/B             C          G/B                 C
Well, starry eyed and laughin' I recall when we were caught,
        G/B                C            D      G
Trapped by an old track of vows for the hands suspended
       G/B              C            G/B                   C               
As we listened one last time, and we watched with one last look
     G/B                  C       D       G              
Spellbound and swallowed "Has the tollin' ended?"



      D                                 G/B       C      G/B                
Yeah, tollin' for the achin' ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
        C                                     G                  D
For the countless, confused, accused, misused strung out ones at worst.
         G/B           C             G/B           C
And for every hung out person in the whole wide universe
   G/B            C          D      G
We gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashin'
