Lyrics

The Drifter

Written By: Tim Green

Its a tale of a restless heart always looking for a brand new start
and if you listen close its enough to make you cry
old wiskey and stale cigarettes
and eyes that only see regrets
and the memories of a life that passed him by

Standing on the porch of a run down shack
Rainin so hard its like a heart attack
Theres a rumble in the sky goin by like a lonely train
and he's strainin through the night to see the lights of the city
but its rainin too hard and loud and feelin like shit
He grabs his old guitar and plays it into the rain

(Chorus)
Its the only song that ever plays anymore
and he knows right or wrong its the only thing
hes got worth living for
So He Plays.....

It was such a long time ago, he a stranger now that she dont know
But a song is the strongest kind of memory
He aint got nothin left but a waste of time,
too much of her always on his mind
and it drives him to the brink of insanity

There's a hurtin in his boots like someone died
another long day tryin to catch a ride
No destination. Chance just leads the way
Whoever said love lost can never be found
didn't take enough time or cover quite enough ground
And on a lonely night you might hear him play....

Chorus

Another look at a photograph that he keeps beneath his hat
and he crumples up another pack of smokes
For just one more chance he'd offer his soul
But every time he does the devil never shows
and he's beginning to think its all just a great big hoax

One night in Tennessee he finally tracks her down
to a little bitty plot at the edge of town
and he falls to his knees when he sees her name in stone
After all those tears and years in the rain
He coulda died right then and there from the pain
and he plays her song it chills him to the bone

Chorus
