Deep Purple - Drifter Lyrics

I was born a rambling man
An' I never got the chance
To settle down an' get a hold on love
Takin' air an' movin' around
Is all I can see that I'm doin'
An' it is bringin' me down
Drivin' on a highway going nowhere
Desolation destination
Guess I'll find it somewhere
I know if there's trouble
I ain't takin' the blame
That's why I keep movin'
So nobody knows my name

Born a loser
I'm beyond the law
Women behind me
Never can find me
They can never get together
What I've been here for
'cause I'm a drifter

Rollin' on
Ain't wastin' my time no more
