Distant Drums
Recorded by Jim Reeves
Written by Cindy Walker

 
C 
I hear the  
G7 
sound of distant  
C 
drums
 
Far  
G7 
away far  
C 
away
 
And if they  
G7 
call for me to  
C 
come
 
Then  
F 
I must  
C 
go and  
G7 
you must  
C 
stay
 
So Mary marry me  
C7 
let's not  
F 
wait
 
Let's share  
G7 
all the time we can before it's too  
C 
late
 
Love me now for now is  
C7 
all the time there may  
F 
be
 
If you  
G7 
love me Mary Mary marry  
C 
me
 
I hear the  
G7 
sound of bugles  
C 
blow
 
Far  
G7 
away far  
C 
away
 
And if they  
G7 
call then I must  
C 
go
F 
Across the  
C 
sea so  
G7 
wild and  
C 
grey
 
So Mary marry me  
C7 
let's not  
F 
wait
 
For the  
G7 
distant drums might change our wedding  
C 
date
 
And love me now for now is  
C7 
all the time there may  
F 
be
 
If you  
G7 
love me Mary Mary marry  
C 
me
