I’m a Drifter

I became a drifter by default and by degree
It seemed my path to be alone
On good days, it sets me free
So I took it all the way to town in the lower 48
Texas to Carolina
The songs lead the way

I’m a drifter, oh a drifter
I learn bout love when I’m on the road
You love me best when you let me go
(That’s who I am for now) I
I’m a drifter

I always watch the sunset, my shepherd and my guide
Carry me to the ones I love
Across some great divide
Whenever clouds come rollin in between me and the light
I let the dark come gently
No use puttin up a fight


Come a time I don’t need to go, the wander lust is gone
I won’t regret one minute
Of the lifetime in this song
If I could have the pleasure of keeping this home with you
I’ll lay down all I know of love
And hope that you will too
