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

 

I thought I heard a sound like a drum

Thought I heard a sound like 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 just shadows on the ground

When I looked around

 

Guess it’s just something on the wind 

Just something on the wind

Deep in the dark of the long lonely night

Just something on the wind

 

There ain't no call to be afraid boys

Ain't  no call to be afraid

Deep in the dark of the long lonely night

Ain't no call to be afraid

 

‘Cos when I look around

Yeah when I looked around

There wasn’t nothing there just shadows on the ground

When I looked around

There wasn’t nothing there just shadows on the ground

When I looked around
