Lyrics

There's something quite familiar about the evening news
People fighting, but nobody wins or loses
Young people dying, there's women too
It's quite a sacrifice they're making, for me and you

Why does it always have to be some Texas cowboy, that sends us off to war?
Why do we have to solve everything, with a bloody sword?
You hate me and I hate you--it's all based in fear
You'll never know what kind of man I am 'til you taste my bitter tears

Chorus:
I hear them crying from distance shores
I hear the Drum Beat of War

Now don't misunderstand me, I can see you side
But don't try and fool me, with a pack of lies
This aging troubadour, has seen his share
I ain't going to sacrifice no son of mine, just to show you care

Chorus:
I hear them crying from distance shores
I hear the Drum Beat of War

Now don't misunderstand me, I can see your side
But don't try and fool me, with a pack of lies
This aging troubadour, has seen his share
I ain't going to sacrifice no son of mine, just to show you care
