John Kay – Drift Away lyrics

Words and music by Mentor Williams

Day after day I'm more confused
But I look for the light through the pouring rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
I'm feelin' the ain't that a shame

Oh gimme the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in the rock and roll and drift away
Gimme the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in the rock and roll and drift away

Beginning to think that I'm wasting time
And I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
Now it's up to carry me through


And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitars coming through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy you've given me
I want you to know I believe in song
Rhythm, rhyme and harmony
They've helped me along...they're making me strong
