Jungle Drums

by Chuck RitenouR 2-6-2K6

chorus:

The jungle drums are beatin' can you hear them on the wind

they were gone a long, long time now they're back again

they can tell you of the storied past, tell you of things to come

and they'll tell you when to run and hide if you listen to the jungle drums.

1st verse:

Hear the rhythm of genocide, starvation and disease

and political oppression that keeps the people on their knees

the warlords rule the junlge and the government is corrupt

we can't sent enough missionaries to nail all the correns shut

chorus:

The jungle drums are beatin' can you hear them on the wind

they were gone a long, long time now they're back again

they can tell you of the storied past, tell you of things to come

and they'll tell you when to run and hide if you listen to the jungle drums.

2nd verse:

can you hear the rifle fire, feel the bombs shake the ground

see the village burning, smell the death all around

the baby's swollen belly, hopelessness in its mother's eyes

the jungle drums tell the truth while the politicians tell you lies.

chorus:

The jungle drums are beatin' can you hear them on the wind

they were gone a long, long time now they're back again

they can tell you of the storied past, tell you of things to come

and they'll tell you when to run and hide if you listen to the jungle drums.

the end
