Bang Your Drum
This is how I play the song. Suggestions and corrections welcome! Dm A The dying light was nearly dead C#m A By the time we reached the water's edge. Dm F We saw the river beating on the river bank C E For the way that it held it in her riverbed. B A It's cold, it's dark, C E It's not for people with uneasy hearts. B A But if you're with me on the other side, C G B Strike up the band; we have survived. A E A E x3 F# And do they beat that drum to get you back home, Or do they beat it to keep you away? Dm A Don't be surprised at your regrets. C#m A Don't be surprised that the water made you wet. Dm There's a shallow down river F Where the water will forgive you, C E Soft skin, your lukewarm beds B A Follow me, oh follow me; C E Allow me to play the voyager. B I'll try to keep you as dry A As the hollowed out tree that C G B You would be wrapped in another man's fur A E A E So take a dive A E A E Oh take a dive A E A E Oh take it out on the stepping stones that make the water lie C E C E So take a dive, oh take a dive A E A E Ohohohoh-ohohoh, ohohohoh-ohohoh C E C E Take that hair out of your damned eyes A E While the waves are rain A E And the sum you'll pay. F# Do they beat that drum to get you back home, Or do they beat it to keep you away? C#m E Will you burn your bridges down Singing lalalalalalala C#m E Will you burn your bridges down Singing lalalalalalala C#m E Will you bang your drum to the blazing sound Singing lalalalalalala G B Will you turn away? G B How can you turn away?
