BANG A DRUM 
(J. Bon Jovi)
Jon Bon Jovi
YOUNG GUNS BLAZE OF GLORY SOUNDTRACK


I went to see the preacher 
To teach me how to pray 
He looked at me and smiled 
Then the preacher turned away 
He said if you want to tell him something 
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 

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 trying 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 dying 
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 
But 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 wiseman 
A poet or a saint 
I'm just another man who's searching 
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 heros 
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 
But as long as my heart keeps on bangin' 
I got a reason to believe
