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)
