Las letras de Distant Drums

I hear the sound of distant drums
Far away, Far away
And if they call for me to come
Then I must go and you must stay

Oigo el sonido de tambores lejanos
Lejos, Lejos
Y si lo llaman para que vaya
Entonces tengo que ir y te quedas debe


So Mary marry me, let's not wait
Let's share all the time we can
Before it's too late
And love me now
For now is all the time there may be
And if you love me Mary, Mary marry me

Así que María se casara conmigo, no vamos a esperar
Vamos a compartir todo el tiempo que puede
Antes de que sea demasiado tarde
Y me amas ahora
Por ahora es todo el tiempo puede haber
Y si me amas María, María se casara conmigo


I hear the sound of bugles blow
Far away, far away
And if they call then I must go
Who knows where or who can say?

Oigo el sonido de clarines golpe
A lo lejos, muy lejos
Y si llaman a continuación, tengo que ir
¿Quién sabe dónde o quién puede decir?


So Mary marry me, let's not wait
For those distant drums
Might change our wedding day
And love me now
For now is all the time there may be
And if you love me Mary, Mary marry me
Yes if you love me Mary, Mary marry me

Así que María se casara conmigo, no vamos a esperar
Para los tambores lejanos
Podría cambiar nuestro día de la boda
Y me amas ahora
Por ahora es todo el tiempo puede haber
Y si me amas María, María se casara conmigo
Sí, si me amas María, María se casara conmigo

'Distant Drums' is the title of a song which provided US singer Jim Reeves with his only number one hit – albeit posthumously – in the United Kingdom in 1966, some two years after his death in a plane crash on 31 July 1964. The song remained in the UK charts for 45 weeks. The single also topped the US country chart for four weeks, becoming his most successful posthumous single. Although Roy Orbison had recorded the song in 1963, it is Reeves' version of 'Distant Drums' which has endured over the years.

During its time at the top of the UK charts the song beat off stiff competition from several major (and living) artists of the day including The Beatles and the Small Faces. This was a unexpected achievement for a song which Reeves had recorded for its composer, Cindy Walker, under the impression it was for her private use only and had been earlier dismissed by both the RCA record company and Chet Atkins (a noted guitarist and record producer who worked with Reeves) as unsuitable for wider public release. This may have explained the lower than usual sound quality heard on the original recording of the song. However, following Reeves' death, the track was overdubbed with an orchestral backing and released to the general public as the version which later climbed up the music charts in both the United States and the UK.

It is now generally accepted the song began attracting attention around 1966 with the continuation of hostilities in the Vietnam War and an increased public awareness (both in the UK and the US) of the difficult conditions faced by U.S. armed personnel fighting in that particular conflict.

This is due to the lyrics implying the wishes of a soldier who wants to marry his beloved (called 'Mary' in the song) before he answers the call of battle in some far away land; the 'Distant Drums' which make up song's title.

'Distant Drums' first entered the UK Singles Chart during the summer of 1966 before reaching the number-one position on 22 September, where it remained for five weeks. It was named the UK's 'song of the year' and Reeves became the first overseas performer to receive this special award.

The song features prominently on several of Reeves' albums which have been released down the years.
