Bang A Drum Lyrics

I went to see the preacher
To teach me how to pray
He looked at me and smiled
Then that preacher turned away

He said, "If you want to tell him somethin'
You ain't gotta fold your hands
Say it with your heart
Your soul and believe it" and I'd say, "Amen"

Bang a drum for the sinners
Bang a drum for the sins
Bang a drum for the losers
And those who win

Bang a drum, bang it loudly
Or as soft as you need
Bang a drum for yourself son
And a drum for me
Ooh let me here you say
Yeah halleluiah, Amen

I called upon my brother
Just the other day
He said, "John I'm gonna
Die if I don't start to live again"

I work each day and night like clockwork
Just tryin' to make ends meet
I could kick this bad world's ass
If I could just get on my feet

I'd bang a drum for the dyin'
Bang a drum for the truth
Bang a drum for the innocence
Lost in our youth

Bang a drum, bang it loudly
Or as soft as you need
Bang a drum for you brother
And a drum for me

I don't know where all the rivers run
I don't know, how far
I don't know, how come
Well I'm gonna die believin'

Each step that I take
Ain't worth the ground
That I walk on
If we don't walk it our own way

No I don't claim to be a wise man
A poet or a saint
I'm just another man who's searchin'
For a better way

But my heart beats loud as thunder
For the things that I believe
Sometimes I wanna run for cover
Sometimes I want to scream

Bang a drum for tomorrow
Bang a drum for the past
Bang a drum for the heroes
That won't come back

Bang a drum for the promise
Bang a drum for the lies
Bang a drum for the lovers
And the tears they've cried

Bang a drum' bang it loudly
Or as soft as you need
As long as my heart keeps on bangin'
I got a reason to believe

Let me here you say
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah
Let me here you say
Yeah halleluiah, Amen

C'mon now, yeah
Oh yeah
Let me here you say
Yeah halleluiah, Amen

Alright girls, brothers
Yeah
Let me here you say
Yeah halleluiah, Amen
