Distant Drums
Recorded by Jim Reeves
Written by Cindy Walker

C G7 C
I hear the sound of distant drums
G7 C
Far away far away
G7 C
And if they call for me to come
F C G7 C
Then I must go and you must stay

C7 F
So Mary marry me let's not wait
G7 C
Let's share all the time we can before it's too late
C7 F
Love me now for now is all the time there may be
G7 C
If you love me Mary Mary marry me

G7 C
I hear the sound of bugles blow
G7 C
Far away far away
G7 C
And if they call then I must go
F C G7 C
Across the sea so wild and grey

C7 F
So Mary marry me let's not wait
G7 C
For the distant drums might change our wedding date
C7 F
And love me now for now is all the time there may be
G7 C
If you love me Mary Mary marry me
