TEN THOUSAND DRUMS
(Mel Tillis - Carl Smith)
'52 Cedarwood Publishing

Waitin' waitin' for the redcoats to come
But all I hear in my frozen ears is ten thousand drums
Ten thousand drums
Johnny Johnny don't be afraid
We can whip those redcoats settin' in the shade
Settin' in the shade
We've got the best of all the rest of Genereal Washington
And when we meet those redcoats watch them redcoats run
Goin' down their drum goin' down their drum
Listen listen Johnny better get your gun
Cause there ain't puttin' soldiers behind ten thousand drums
Behind ten thousand drums
Runnin' runnin' Johnny watch them run
We finally whip those redcoats finally stop those drums
We stop ten thousand drums
We're the best of all the rest such Yankee son of a gun
We can tell our mommies how we made them run goin' down thir drum
Goin' down their drum goin' down their drum
Ten thousand drums ten thousand drums
