Bells of Harlem

capo 5

C           C/B    Am          C/B
Look at the world, it's walking up
C          C/B       F   G
I couldn't sleep for dreaming
C        C/B   Am        C/B
My weary soul is finally home
C         C/B       F   G
I had the strangest feeling

Am                G
This is the dawn, the break of day
Am                G
After the midnight parted
C             C/B  Am          C/B
These ringing ears have waited years
F                    G  C
To hear the bells of Harlem

Far down the streets, I see the signs
The crowd is breathing faster
Some must have walked a hundred blocks
I see the flocks and pastors

Oh what a time, to be alive
Tears of the past forgotten
It's been a long, and lonely night
I hear the bells of Harlem

Am                         Em 
They ring, they ring, they sing, they sing
Am          F        G
The darkest hour has passed
Am                         Em         G
They ring, they ring, they sing, they sing
D               G
A little joy at long last

Am                  G
The brightest rose, ain't no more cane
Am                   G
We ground it down to sorghum
C           C/B   Am          C/B
We couldn't stop, the freedom train
F                   G  C
I hear the bells of Harlem



The lyrics might not be exactly right, that 
last verse is particularly hard to make out, 
but this song is just gorgeous I think.
