Ring Them Bells - Gordon Lightfoot

    Ring them bells ye heathen from the city that dreams
    Ring them bell from the sanctuaries, 'cross the valleys and streams
    For they're deep and they're wide, and the world's on its side
    And time is a-runnin' backwards and so is the bride

    Ring them bells St. Peter where the four winds blow
    Ring them bells with an iron hand so the people will know
    Oh it's rush hour now. on the wheel of the plow
    And the sun is a-goin' down upon the sacred cow

    Ring them bells sweet Martha for the poor man's son
    Ring them bells so the world will know that God is one
    For the shepherd is asleep where the willow weep
    And the mountain is filled with lost sheep

    Ring them bells - for the blind and the deaf
    Ring them bells - all those who are left
    Ring them bells - for the chosen few
    Who'll judge the many when the game is through
    Ring them bells - for the time that flies
    For the child who cries when innocence dies

    Ring them bells St. Catherine from the top of the roof
    Ring the bells from the fortress for the lilies that bloom
    For the lines are long and the fighting is strong
    And they're breakin' down the distance between right and wrong
