Verse 1:

	 E                          B
	Day after day I'm more confused
	E                 F#                    B
	So I look for the light in the pouring rain
	E                                      B
	You know that's a game that I hate to lose
	C#m                      E
	I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dobie_gray/drift_away_crd.html ]
Chorus:

	     B
	Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
	  F#/A#                                     E/G#
	I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
	     B
	Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
	  F#                                        E
	I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

	Beginning to think that I'm wastin' time
	I don't understand the things I do
	The world outside looks so unkind
	I'm countin' on you   to carry me through

[repeat chorus]

[repeat intro]

Bridge:

	C#m
	And when my mind is free
	E                      B
	You know a melody can move me
	C#m
	And when I'm feelin' blue
	E                               F#
	The guitar's comin' through to soothe me
	E                                    B
	Thanks for the joy that you've given me
	E             F#                      B
	I want you to know I believe in your song
	E                        B
	Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
	C#m                  E
	You help me along   makin' me strong

[repeat chorus to fade - acappella first couple times]
