Capo 3rd fret:

Verse 1 :
I (D) went to see the preacher, to (A) teach me how to (D) pray
He (G) looked at me and (D) smiled, then that (A) preacher turned away
Said, "If you (D) want to tell him (G) something, you ain't (A) gotta fold 
your (D) hands.
Say it with your (G) heart, your (A) soul, and believe (D) it, and I'll 
(A) 
say, Amen."

Chorus:
Bang a (D) drum for the sinners, bang a (A) drum for your (D) sins
Bang a (G) drum for the (D) losers and (A) those who win
Bang a (D) drum, bang it (G) loudly, or as (A) soft as you (D) need
Bang a (G) drum for yourself (D) son, and a (A) drum for (D) me

Verse 2 :
Well I called upon my brother, just the other day
He said, "Jon, I'm gonna die if I don't start to live again.
I work each day and night like clockwork, just tryin' to make ends meet.
Well I could kick this bad world's ass if I could just get on my feet."

Bang a drum for the dying, bang a drum for the truth
Bang a drum for the innocence, lost in our youth
Bang a drum, bang it loudly, or as soft as you need
Bang a drum for your brother, and a drum for me

I (G) don't know where all the (A) rivers (D) run
I don't (G) know how (D) far, I don't (A) know how come
But (G) I'm gonna die (D) believin, with each (G) step that I (D) take
Ain't worth the (G) ground that I (D) walk if we don't (A) walk it our own 
(Bm) way

Verse 3 :
I don't claim to be a wise man, a poet, or a Saint
Just another man who's searchin' for a better way
But my heart beats loud as thunder, for the things that I believe
Sometimes I want to run for cover, sometimes I want to scream

Bang a drum for the tomorrow, bang a drum for the past
Bang a drum for heroes, who won't come back
Bang a drum for the promise, bang a drum for the lies
Bang a (G) drum for the (D) lovers, and the (A) tears they cry
Bang a (D) drum bang it (G) loudly, or as (A) soft as you (D) need

But as long as my (G) heart keeps on (D) banging, I've got a (A) reason to 
(D) believe

When did this song come out and who wrote it? I've never heard
LeDoux's version. This song was done by Jon Bon Jovi on the Young
Guns II soundtrack, and I thought it was his song. Anybody have any
info?

Bon Jovi was the original artist on the song, I think it was on a
movie soundtrack. Chris recorded it for his One Road Man album and
Jon Bon Jovi acompanied him on it as a duet.

it's a mad song
-Beauwilliams | 5/2/2004
Originally from the soundtrack of the Young Guns movie, written and recorded by Jon Bon Jovi.
