Franklin's Tower
(Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter)
Transcription taken from Ed Bick's Tab Site
I haven't been able to check if Panic does this in the same
key as the transcription below.
If anyone can tell me if it is or not, please let me know.

Main Riff:
| /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / |
  A        G   D        G

For the opening, play this in the 3rd position.  That is:

         A                  G                 D
11|--|--|--|--|--|  9|--|--|--|--|--| 10|--|--|--|--|--|

  |--|--|--|--|--|   |--|--|--|--|--|   |--|--|--|--|--|


Verse 1:
A               G   D             G
In another times forgotten space
A               G          D               G
Your eyes looked from your mother's face
A              G       D                G
Wildflower seed on the sand and stone
A                  G        D            G
May the four winds blow you safely home

Chorus:
A        G    D       G
Roll Away the Dew
A        G    D       G
Roll Away the Dew
A        G    D       G
Roll Away the Dew
A        G    D       G
Roll Away the Dew

Verse 2:
I'll tell you where the four winds dwell
In Franklin's tower there hangs a bell
It can ring, turn night to day
It can ring like fire if you lose your way

(Chorus)

Verse 3:
God save the child that rings that bell
May have one good ring baby, you can't tell
One watch by night, one watch by day
If you get confused, listen to the music play

(Jam)

Verse 4:
Some come to laugh their past away
Some come to make it just one more day
Whichever way your pleasure tends
If you plant ice, you're gonna harvest wind

(Chorus)

Verse 5:
In Franklin's tower the four winds sleep
Like four lean hounds, the lighthouse keep
Wildflower seed on the sand and wind
May the four winds blow you home again

(Chorus)
