Jethro Tull – Ring Out Solstice Bells chords
This is a simplification, as is common when trying to chord after Anderson who seems to rules whether they need it or not. Even so, following along with the recording is more than it appears here due to time changes, including dropping a beat here and there to parts of this something like 4:7 time. Thus the chords are novice, but the playing is level. But just let it flow, and you'll catch on. When you do it's a darn fun strum, and great way to show off at holiday visitors.D G DNow is the solstice of the year,D G Dwinter is the glad song that you hear.G Em A Seven maids move in seven time.G Em A DHave the lads up ready in a line.D D(sus4) DRing out these bells.D D(sus4) GRing out, ring solstice bells.G Em GRing solstice bells.D G DJoin together beneath the mistletoe.D G D by the holy oak whereon it grows.G Em ASeven druids dance in seven time.G Em A DSing the song the bells call, loudly chiming.same as above: Ring out these bells.
