SHADOWS  ON THE GROUND

 

Deep in the dark of the night

Deep in the dark of the night

I heard a voice… and I saw a light

Deep in the dark of the night

 

I thought I heard somebody call my name boys

Thought I heard somebody call my name

Deep in the dark of the long lonely night

Somebody called my name

 

But when I looked around

When I looked around

Wasn’t nothing there but shadows on the ground

When I looked around

 

I thought I heard the sound of a drum

Thought I heard the sound of a drum

Deep in the dark of the long lonely night

I thought I heard a drum

 

Footsteps were marching in time boys

Footsteps were marching in time

Deep in the dark of the long lonely night

Footsteps marched in time

 

But when I looked around

When I looked around

Wasn’t nothing there but shadows on the ground

When I looked around

 

I guess it’s just something on the wind boys

Guess it’s just something on the wind

Deep in the dark of the long lonely night

Just something on the wind

 

Aint no call to be afraid boys

Aint  no call to be afraid

Deep in the dark of the long lonely night

Aint no call to be afraid

 

‘Cos when you look around

When you look around

Won’t be nothing there but shadows on the ground

When you look around
