Dobie Gray – Drift Away lyrics

Day after day I'm more confused
Yet I look for the light through the pourin' rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
And I'm feelin' the strain
Ain't it a shame?

(Chrous)
Oh, gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away
Oh, gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away

Beginnin to think that I'm waistin' time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
And I'm countin' on you
To carry me through
Oh

Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away
Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin blue
A guitar's comin' through to sooth me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know that I believe in your song
Your rythem and rhyme and harmony
You've helped me along
Makin' me strong
Oh

Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away
Ohhhhhh
Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away
Ohhh woah woah!
Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul(free my soul)
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away
(Oh hey hey yeah)
Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul(free my soul)
I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll and drift away
(Na na na wontcha)
(wontcha take me, whoa whoa, take me)

    1972 as a 15 year old kid, I was in a run down rental house in piedmont Alabama, living with my grandmother and this was on the radio. It made me cry, but I knew I had to keep fighting, that somehow, someway, I was going to make it and that everything would work out ok. I did make it off nolen street, and all did turn out alright. I know my grandmother is so happy for me. I look forward to the day when I see her again and all the troubles of this world will be long gone. I plan on living forever, thank you Jesus!

    This miraculous tune reaffirms for me the amazing healing and spiritual power of music. "Drift Away" crosses all boundaries of genre, quieting rowdy, drunken crowds and inspiring universal self reflection and gratitude. Our collectible consciousness is immediately drawn into this ideal example of the magical force that raises us above petty concerns and squabbles and.
