I'm gonna be a modern day drifter
And get out while I can
Gonna trade in this life I've been living
For a pocket full of sand
And a modern day drifter don't have to tell no one his plans

I'm gonna find that long stretch of highway
No one knows my name
Where as long as the sky just goes on
And it's never the same
A modern day drifter don't ever complain

Bye bye hi life
Feels like the right time
To say so long
Keep on going strong
And I'll just keep on being gone
Cause I'm gonna be a modern day drifter, Yes I am
Gonna slip this ring off my finger
Cause everybody understands
That a modern day drifter's got nothing but time on his hands

Bye bye hi life
Feels like the right time
To say so long
Keep on going strong
And I'll just keep on being gone
Cause I'm gonna be a modern day drifter
Oh yes I am
Gonna slip this ring off my finger
Cause everybody understands
That a modern day drifter's got nothing but time on his hands
