Drifter (Aaron Davis)

Are you a Drifter? Drifters are my kind
I’ve made up, made up my mind

Boxcars are empty, but you won’t sleep a wink
Might even get Kentuckied, naturally

Steady jobs and friendly cops still scare me
‘To each is own’ it’ll read on my gravestone
Can’t keep me from shinning around my hometown
Bottom fact is now, its drifting for me, my friend

Is it the freedom or the gamble? Driftin’ is my jam
Days are like cards, cards in my hands

Driftin’ is like fishin’ and catchin’ ain’t means to an end
If your line’s not in the water its all pretend

Steady jobs and friendly cops still scare me
‘To each is own’ it’ll read on my gravestone
Can’t keep me from shinnin’ around my hometown
Bottom fact is now, its drifting for me, my friend

Siftin’ thru the big sky blue, aim-full in scope
It beats settling down if you can cope

Steady jobs and friendly cops still scare me
‘To each is own’ it’ll read on my gravestone
Can’t keep me from shinnin’ around my hometown
Bottom fact is now, its drifting for me, my friend
Bottom fact is now, its drifting for me, my friend
