Song Notes

So many names for one song! So glad the Brothers IV recorded this tune. It’s got classic Gibson rhythmic and melodic motifs delivered with charming counter-harmony parts.

LYRIC

Bong Bong Ahway Leeway

(Ringing Bells)

Balleh eh fah besseh mah
Bong bong aywah leeway
Balleh eh fah besseh mah
Bong bong aywah leeway

Hear the bells are calling from the village just a mile ahead
Hear the singing bells are ringing calling from a mile ahead
Ringing bells, calling bells, beckon on from a mile ahead

Bells do beacon weary travelers
From the village up the road
Telling us to hurry there
Where we can rest our weary load

Hear the bells are calling from the village just a mile ahead
Hear the singing bells are ringing calling from a mile ahead
Ringing bells, calling bells, beckon on from a mile ahead
