Once again there's a feeling inside of me
Nothing new, I've felt it before.
Like the voice of a hunger inside of me
Crying out, there's got to be more!

I put my faith in arms of an open road
And you can come along if you please.

'Cause there's places that I've never been to,
Sunsets to be ridden into.
Not a lot I can do but give into the drifter.
There's a drifter in me.

Though I've tried it I'm just not a settler
And nine-to-five don't make it with me.
Why deny it it makes me feel better
To come alive and prove that I'm free.

I wear no chains and I carry no heavy load.
So much to gain and nothing to lose.

'Cause there's places that I've never been to,
Sunsets to be ridden into.
Not a lot I can do but give into the drifter.
There's a drifter . . .

Places that I've never been to,
Sunsets to be ridden into.
Not a lot I can do but give into the drifter.
There's a drifter in me.
