Lyrics

"The Drifter"

Written By: Tanner Billings

Verse 1:
You drown yourself in whiskey,
Smoke your life away
Live your life wastin' time
dreamin' night to day

Chorus:
You'd rather be a vagrant
Walkin' on rocky land
than be a king in your castle made of sand

You'd rather be a gypsy
out on the open road
than be a man with a million friends
that always feels alone

Verse 2:
You think about headin' out
Chasin' them old dreams
you know that you could make it if you could only leave
The highway may not have what you been lookin' for but but you will never know unless you walk on out the door

Chorus:
You'd rather be a vagrant
Walkin' on rocky land
than be a king in your castle made of sand

You'd rather be a gypsy
out on the open road
than be a man with a million friends
that always feels alone

Bridge:
Are you sure that this is worth it
or are you just wastin time
in a life thats less than perfect
whats so wrong with mine

Verse 3:
You play your guitar and you think about your life
think about all the things you'd love to give your wife
you think about how you feel as if you'd failed
think about what it'd be like ridin on the rails

Chorus:
You'd rather be a vagrant
Walkin' on rocky land
than be a king in your castle made of sand

You'd rather be a gypsy
out on the open road
than be a man with a million friends
that always feels alone

"The Drifter"

Written By: Tanner Billings

Verse 1:
You drown yourself in whiskey, Smoke your life away
Live you life wastin' time dreamin night and day
got no posessions nowhere to go
nowhere to rest your feet nowhere to call home

Chorus:
You'd rather be a vagrant walkin' on rocky land
than be a king in your castle made of sand
you'd rahter be a gypsy out on the open road
than be a man with a million friends that always feels alone

Verse 2:
You think about headin out and chasin them old dreams
you know that you could make it if you could only leave
the highway may not have what you been lookin for
but you will never know until you walk on out the door

Chorus:
You'd rather be a vagrant walkin' on rocky land
than be a king in your castle made of sand
you'd rahter be a gypsy out on the open road
than be a man with a million friends that always feels alone

Bridge:
Are you sure that this is worth it
or are you just wastin' time
in a life thats less than perfect
whats so wrong with mine

Verse 3:
You play your guitar and you think about you life
think about all the things you'd love to give your wife
think about how you feel as if youve failed
wonder what it'd be like ridin on the rails

Chorus:
You'd rather be a vagrant walkin' on rocky land
than be a king in your castle made of sand
you'd rahter be a gypsy out on the open road
than be a man with a million friends that always feels alone
