The Stone Coyotes

The Beat of My Drum

The Stone Coyotes


I’m the seventh son of a seventh son

Gonna play till my day is done

Marching on to kingdom come

To the beat of my heart, to the beat of my drum


Like thunder rolling in the night

He hits the snare with all his might

Drives the soldiers through the fight


He said, “I have no sword - I have no shield

I play on ancient battlefields

Till I die I shall not yield


Drummer boy on a distant shore

Calling out in peace and war

“One two three four!”
