                I heard this version on this "The best of Tour of Duty" CD that I 
found at my local library, fell in love it, work out the music and 
lyrics (hope it's right), and decided to post it here. Great lyrics. 
(what do expect anyway if it's written by Dylan!)

Here comes:

Chimes of Freedom - The Byrds  (B. Dylan)
 (Not sure of the exact album, but it 
should be on their compilations like the box set ect).

Arr. Mende Joveski

intro: G   C   C/B   D   Dsus4   C   D   G

G                  C9  
Far between sundowns finish
        G             C9
And midnights broken toll
      G                          C9             D          C
We ducked inside the doorway - thunder crashing

G                C9  
As majestic bells of bolts
           G           C9
Struck shadows in the sounds
G               C9       D            G
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing 


Flashing for the warriors 
            G              C9      G
Whose strength is not to fight
D                      G
Flashing for the refugees
            Am                     D
On the unarmed road of flight
             G                      C9
And for each and every underdog
G                  C9
Soldier in the night
             G                       C9           D           G
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing

2nd verse:
Even though the clouds white curtain, in the far off corner flashed
And the hynotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
Electric light 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

Dee  dee  dee dee dee  (ect)

3rd verse:
Starry eyed and laughing, as I recall when we were caught
Can't find no track of ours for they hang suspended
And we listened one last time, and we watched with one last look
Spellbound and swallowed until the tolling ended

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

Dee dee dee dee dee-da (ect)

It sounds right to me but if you have any suggestions or insults, I 
await them all.
