(dobie gray)

Day after day Im more confused
Yet I look for the light
Through the pourin rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
And Im feeling the strain
Aint it a shame

Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I want to get lost in your rock and roll
And drift away
[repeat]

Beginning to think that Im wasting time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
Now Im counting on you
To carry me through

Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I want to get lost in your rock and roll
And drift away
[repeat]

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when Im feeling blue
The guitars coming through to soothe me

Thanks for the joy that you're given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Your rythm and rhyme and harmony
Youve helped me along
Makin me strong

Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I want to get lost in your rock and roll
And drift away
[repeat]
Na, na, now wont ya
Wont ya take, oh ha ..take me
