or
Bobby Goldsboro

You knew I could not stay for long when you asked me
To come over in the wee hours of the mornin'.

I said I could not let the sunrise catch me sleepin'
And that is why I've given you fair warnin'.

And though you might have loved me like I never ever have been loved before
Your front door is open and I've got to keep on movin'.

So I will stay with you a while and then I'll
Wet my hitch hike thumb take me to where I wanna.

Because I've got to keep on searchin' for the dream that
I've been seekin' since I left my Oklahoma

And who's to say but that I might not be back tomorrow
If I find there's only sorrow
You may see me from your windowsill
Next mornin

I'm a drifter and I've seen the rain.
I'm a drifter and I've felt the pain,
The pain that comes with loneliness.
So I drift from town to town searchin' all around.
Lookin' for the answer to my sorrow.
And if the answer is you then I'll be back tomorrow.

Lets make the most of time before the break of day
But don't try to make me stay if I don't want to.

Because I've got to keep on searchin for that dream
And you can't bind me with the simple words I love you.

But if I realize the dream that I've been searchin' for
Is waitin' here behind your door
Then I'll come back to stay if you still want me too.

I'm a drifter and I've seen the rain.
I'm a drifter and I've felt the pain,
The pain that comes with loneliness.
So I drift from town to town searchin' all around.
Lookin' for the answer to my sorrow.
And if the answer is you then I'll be back tomorrow.

I'm a drifter and I've seen the rain.
I'm a drifter and I've felt the pain,
The pain that comes with loneliness.
