OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Oh, gimme the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll

Men star right one time around
Left allemande and weave the ring
Oh, gimme the beat boys and free my soul
Swing your girl, promenade you know
And drift away
Oh, won't you take me away


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands round that old ring
Sides (heads) roll a half sashay, step to your wave
Swing thru tonight, now the boys run right
And a right & left thru, and turn your girl
Pass thru, wheel & deal, centers square thru 3/4
Do an allemande left and keep that girl and promenade
And when I'm feeling blue
Those guitars are (comin' through)


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Gimme the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll
And drift away
Oh won't you take me away

Four ladies promenade
Gimme the beat girls and free my soul
Swing that girl, promenade you know
And drift away
Oh won't you take me away

Drift Away  (1972)

Day after day I'm more confused
Yet I look for the light through the pouring rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
And I'm feelin' the strain
Ain't it a shame

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Oh, 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 wastin' time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
And I'm countin' on you
To carry me through

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Yeah, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitar's comin' through to soothe me

Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
And rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You've helped me along
Makin' me strong

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

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Hey, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Na na na, won't you, won't you take me
Oh, take me

Lyrics by Mentor Williams.
Recorded by Dobie Gray; Uncle Kracker; many others.
