Subject: Franklin's Tower...From Bill

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:

Artist:Greatful Dead
Song: "Franklin's Tower"

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

A                            G D                   G A

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

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.

                                   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
 D                         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
                                    G
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!
