Ringing The Bells For Jim

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
The father heard church bells at midnight
A wrong time for church bells to chime
He went to the tower found a little girl there
Said why ring the bells at this time

Johnny and Carter Sisters:
I'm just ringing the bells for Jim, please father
Ringing the bells for Jim
I'm sorry I'm crying
But my brother Jim's dying
So I'm ringing the bells for Jim

Johnny:
Please father pray for him this Christmas
He's sick and he's in so much pain
The doctors all say he'll be gone any day
So I must ring the bells again

Johnny and Carter Sisters:
I'm just ringing the bells for Jim, please father
Ringing the bells for Jim
I'm sorry I'm crying
But my brother Jim's dying
And I'm ringing the bells for Jim

Johnny:
On the day after Christmas she brought him
Said father heed little Jim
You see he got well when he heard the church bells
I was ringing the bells for Jim

Johnny and Carter Sisters:
I'm just ringing the bells for Jim please father
Ringing the bells for Jim
Sorry I'm crying
But my brother Jim's dying So I'm ringing the bells for Jim
