Bells of Rhymney

This song is by Bob Dylan and appears on the box set The Bootleg Series Vol. 11: The Basement Tapes Complete (2014).

This song is a cover of "The Bells of Rhymney" by Pete Seeger.
Oh what will you give me?
Say the sad bells of Rhymney
Is there hope for the future?
Say the brown bells of Merthyr
Who made the mine owner?
Say the black bells of Rhondda
And who robbed the miner?
Say the big bells of Blaina

They will plunder willy-nilly
Say the bells of Caerphilly
They have fangs, they have teeth
Shout the loud bells of Neath
Even God is uneasy
Say the moist bells of Swansea
And what will you give me?
Say the bad bells of Rhymney

Throw the vandals in court
Say the bells of Newport
All would be well, if, if, if, if
Say the green bells of Cardiff
Why so worried, sister, why?
Say the silver bells of Wye
And what will you give me?
Say the bad bells of Rhymney
