"Distant Drums" as written by and Cindy Walker....
I hear the sound of distant drums
Far away, far away
And if they call for me to come
Then I must go, and you must stay
So, Mary, marry me, let's not wait
Let's share all the time we can before it's too late
Love me now, for now is all the time there may be
If you love me, Mary, Mary, marry me

I hear the sound of bugles blowing
Far away, far away
And if they call, then I must go
Across the sea, so wild and gray
So, Mary, marry me, let's not wait
Or the distant drums might change our wedding day
Love me now, for now is all the time there may be
If you love me, Mary, Mary, marry me
