Written By: Juli on 10/14/05 at 10:08 am

HELP!!!!
The rest of the chorus is "I want to get lost in you rock n' roll & drift away."  I have loved this song for years.  I would like to know title & band.  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Juli

It's called Drift Away.  various people have sung it.

This version of the lyrics is by Bill Withers.

Day after day I'm more confused
But I look for the light through the pouring rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
Now I'm feeling the strain
Aint it a shame?

(Chorus)
Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll
And drift away
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll
And drift away

Beginning to think that I'm wasting time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
I'm counting on you
To carry me through

(Chorus)

And when my mind is free you know melody can move me
And when I'm feeling blue the guitar's coming through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Your rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You've helped me along
You're making me strong

(Chorus)

(Repeat chorus 2 times)

Now now now won't you take me?
Oh oh take me
Fly high...

karen beat me to the punchline, but yeah, that's the song. A lot of people on the site give Dobie Gray the credit for writing the lyrics initially.

The site I used was the first one Google found when I searched for the correct line.
