Neil Young – Drifter lyrics

I'm just a drifter
I'll stay until you
Try to tie me down
I'm not a quitter, baby
I'd like to stay and see
The whole thing go down.

Don't try to tell me
What I gotta do to fit
Don't try to rescue me,
I'm gonna go with my ship.

What about you, did I ever
Take a thing from you?
What about me, how do I know
That your love is true?
What about you,
How can I count on you
To count on me?

I like to drive my car
If I've got someplace to go
I like to feel the wheel
Put down the top
And let it roll.

Don't try to fence me in,
Don't try to slow me down
Don't try to speed me up,
Or tie my feet
Down to the ground.

What about you, did I ever
Take a thing from you?
What about me, how do I know
That your love is true?
What about you,
How can I count on you
To count on me?

I'm just a drifter
I'll stay until
You try to tie me down
Don't try to rescue me,
Don't try to rescue me
I like to feel the wheel,
I like to feel the wheel
I like to feel the wheel.
