lyrics

Verse 1
The Drifter is a man
With snakeskin and a tan
Living life under the sun
Always on the run
Chorus
With his brown oiled leathers
And his heart stained love letters
Lord he wanders the day and night
Waiting on the winds of change to make him feel alright
Alright.
Verse 2
Well, Pearl was the name
Of the only girl who could ever tame
The Drifter’s wild, stallion-like heart
But his love for hard living
Only drive her away
Till one day she ran away with his heart
Verse 3
With a tear in his eye
He’s always surprised
When the bottom of every bottle is near
Wondering why he’d cast her aside
For the taste of a bottle of beer
Chorus
With his brown oiled leathers
And his heart stained love letters
He wanders the day and the night
Waiting on the sweet winds of change to make him alright,
To make him feel alright.
