Steppenwolf – Drift Away lyrics

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

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away

Beginnin' to think I'm wastin' time
'Cause I can't understand the thing I do
The world outside looks so unkind
Now it's up to you to carry me through

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away

But when my mind is free
You know, a melody can move me
And when I'm feeling blue
The guitar's coming through to soothe me

Oh, oh, 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 makin' me strong

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away
Hey, give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away

Oh, give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away

Oh, give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away
Hey, give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away
