Distant Drums



I hear the sound of distant drumsFar away, far awayAnd if they call for me to comeThen I must go and you must stay
So Mary marry me, let's not waitLet's share all the time we can before it's too lateLove me now for now is all the time there may beIf you love me Mary, Mary marry me
I hear the sound of bugles blowFar away, far awayAnd if they call, then I must goAcross the sea, so wild and grey.
So Mary marry me, let's not waitFor the distant drums might change our wedding date And love me now, for now is all the time there may beIf you love me Mary, Mary marry me
