Key of D
Day after day I'm more confused
But I look for the light thru the pourin' rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose.
I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame oh
Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift awy.
Give me the beat, boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in the rock and roll and drift away.
Beginnin' to think that I'm wastin' time
And I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
Now it's up to you to carry me thru
When my mind is free you know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue the guitars comin' thru to sooth 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,
(Repeat and fade on: "Give me the beat boys and free my soul”)
