Dave Van Ronk learned Dylan an old Irish ballad his Brooklyn Irish grandmother used to sing, The Chimes Of Trinity, written by Michael J. Fitzpatrick and first published in 1895. Dylan made good use of the original refrain:
Tolling for the outcast, tolling for the gay,
Tolling for the millionaire and friends long pass'd away,
But my heart is light and gay
As I stroll down old Broadway
And I listen to the Chimes of Trinity.
Oldest versions: Gus Terrill for Berliner in 1895 (unlistenable) and an instrumental version on tubular bells for Edison in 1902. The Peerless Quartet recorded it for Victor in 1925.
