Chimes of Freedom Lyrics

Far between sundown's finish an' midnight's broken toll

We ducked inside the doorway as thunder went crashing

As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds

Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing

    One of BOB DYLAN'S most influential songs of hope for liberating our freedom from ourselves, who were part of the government that left many of us feeling poor in spirit after the assassination of pres. John F. Kennedy. And Who was still fighting for the Dreamer's dream of freedom within our Country. Where for me this song raises visions of the time when the American soldiers and their Allies with whom liberated all Those millions of prisoners towards their freedom from all those concentration rat trap camps in Europe, during and after WW2.

    All the while listening and trying to live through the Sixties America ''freedom movement'' where this song was sounding the ''Chimes Of Freedom'' with whom the Radical Left Wing Revolutionary Leaders ''missions'' of Zionism and their Marxist ideology infiltration that was helping their Revolution, but also was taking advantage and weakening the people who were fighting in the streets for our equal rights. Which was not so understandable then. As this ''radicalized freedom'' that was progressively pursuing their evil agenda on us. By those who questioned,debated and found God guilty, to only leave Him behind on that cross again.

    Who was then beginning to empower the devils again that were let loose upon our American society. By which began to corrupt the soul of the young individuals from the Church down and onto the streets. By which was also empowering The Ones that started the 3 way Revolution on the people. Forwanting the man to become his own kind of egotistical god that has been raising too many of them radical left wing American Zionist Chiefs around the world and less and less spiritually proud American Indians that were left behind on our American soil.

    chimes of freedom is one of the best songs the bard has ever written. it's about the lack of caring on the government's part for those who are downtrodden- misused-confused- abused- strung out ones and worst, and for each forgotten innocent misplaced inside a jail and we gazed into the chimes of freedom flashing. look up the lyrics and read them, it's a history lesson on the 60s
