Day after day I'm more confused But I look for the light through the pourin' rain You know that's a game that I hate to lose I'm feelin' the strain Ain't it a shame?
[Chorus] Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul I want to get lost in your rock-'n'-roll and drift away Give me the beat, boys, and free my soul I want to get lost in your rock-'n'-roll and drift away
Beginin' to think that I'm wastin time And I don't understand the things I do The world outside looks so unkind I'm countin' on you to carry me through
And when my mind is free You know a melody can move me And when I'm feelin' blue The guitar's comin' through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me I want you to know I believe in the song And rhythm and rhyme and harmony You helped me along You're makin' me strong
