This is how I learned "Franklin's Tower" by the Dead. I don't know if the

chords are right because a friend of mine showed me how to play it. In any

case, here it is:

In another time's forgotten space, your eyes looked from your mother's face

A G D G A

G D G

Wild flower seed on the sand and stone, may the four winds blow you safely

home

A G D G A G D G A G D G A

G D G

Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the

dew.

A G D G A G

D G

I'll tell you where the four winds dwell, in Franklin's Tower there hangs a

bell

A G D G A G D

G

It can ring, turn night to day, it can ring like fire when you lose your way

A G D G A G D G A G D G A

G D G

Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the

dew.

A G D G A

G D G

God save the child who rings the bell, it may have one good ring; baby, you

can't tell

A G D G A G

One watch by night, one watch by day, if you get confused, listen to the

music play

A G D G A G D G A G D G A

G D G

Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the

dew.

A G D G A

G D G

Some come to laugh thier past away, some come to make it one more day

A G D G A G D

Whichever way your pleasure tends, if you plant ice, you're gonna harvest

wind

A G D G A G D G A G D G A

G D G

Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the

dew.

A G D G A

G D G

In Franklin's Tower the four winds sleep, like four lean hounds the

lighthouse keep

A G D G A

G D G

Wild flower seed in the sand and wind, may the four winds blow you home again

A G D G A G D G A G D G A

G D

Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the dew. Roll away the

dew.

This song could be dead solid perfect or totally wrong, I don't know.

However, this is how I learned it and this is how I play it. If it is

totally wrong, at least the words are here. That is all!

No Worries!
