Sittin' In The Back Where The Chairs Are Stacked
I'm Warmin' Up By The Stove
Thinkin' Bout My Old Ford Stomp Through The

Chuggin' Out A Pleasant Grove
Blazin' Off To California Like A Dust Devil Dancin'
On A Dime Guess I Was Just A Red Eyed Backslider
Now I'm Tired Of The Ride

But Once You're A Drifter, You're Always A Drifter
Once A Drifter, Always A Drifter

Mama Standing In The Driveway
Too Choked Up To Say Goodbye
I Turn My Collar Up And I Turn My Back
Went A Mile And I Started To Cry
Kris Donnie Brooks And Me
Singin' Songs Just To Past The Time
Long Before The War Came Long Before The Star
Game Long Before I Came To Find

That Once You're A Drifter
You're Always A Drifter
Once A Drifter,
Always A Drifter

Music Break

So Here I Am An Uncertain Man
Headed For No Place To Go
Settling Down Leavin' Town
Family Man, Ramblin' Man
I Just Pretend It's Part Of The Show
One Too Many Childhood Movies
With Strangers Ridin' Off In The Sun
Taught Me You Can't Talk It Out
When You Feel Like Walkin' Out
The Sequels Already Begun

Once You're A Drifter
You're Once A Drifter,
Once A Drifter,
Always A Drifter
