[Verse 1]
C          G                  Am            Em
You knew I could not stay for long when you asked me
        F           Dm               G       G7
To come over in the wee hours of the mornin'
C        Em                Am               Em
I said I could not let the sunrise catch me sleepin'
    F                Am             G        G7
And that is why I've given you fair warnin'
E7                  Am           C
And though you might have loved me like I never ever
          F            Dm                 Em
Have been loved before your front door is open
         Am             G        G7
And I've got to keep on movin'
C         G               Am               Em
So I will stay with you a while - and then I'll
     	 F          Dm                       G       G7
Let my hitch hike thumb take me to where I wanna
C            Em             Am                Em
Because I've got to keep on searchin' for the dream
               F              Am        G     G7
That I've been seekin'- since I left my Ok-la-homa
E7                      Am                C
And who's to say that I might not be back tomorrow
     F                 Dm                   Em
If I find there's only sorrow - You may see me from your
F           G	       G7    G
Window sill next mornin'

[Chorus]
      C         Em       Am               G
I'm a drifter - and I've seen the rain
      C         Em       Dm                G
I'm a drifter - and I've felt the pain the pain that comes with
Am          C
loneliness
     F                  Em     F             Em
So I drift from town to town - searchin' all around
F               Em           Dm
Lookin' for the answer to my sorrow –
           F              G
And if the answer is you
 
             G7       C      F   C   F   C  F  C  F  C
Then I'll be back to-morrow

[Verse 2]
C             G              Am                Em
Lets make the most of time before the break of day
          F              Dm              G         G7
But don't try to make me stay if I don't want to
C            Em             Am                 Em
Because I've got to keep on searchin' for that dream and you
      F                Am                  Gsus   G
can't bind me with the simple words I love you
E7                    Am                   C
But if I realize the dream that I've been searchin' for is
F            Dm
Waitin' here behind your door
     Em                A                 G           G7
Then I'll come back to stay if you still want me too


[Chorus]
      C         Em       Am               G
I'm a drifter - and I've seen the rain
      C         Em       Dm                G
I'm a drifter - and I've felt the pain the pain that comes with
Am          C
loneliness
     F                  Em     F             Em
So I drift from town to town - searchin' all around
F               Em           Dm
Lookin' for the answer to my sorrow –
           F              G
And if the answer is you
             G7       C      F   C   F   C  F  C  F  C
Then I'll be back to-morrow

[Chorus] 

      C         Em       Am               G
I'm a drifter - and I've seen the rain
      C         Em       Dm                G
I'm a drifter - and I've felt the pain the pain that comes with
Am          C
loneliness
     F                  Em     F             Em
So I drift from town to town - searchin' all around
F               Em           Dm
Lookin' for the answer to my sorrow –


           F              G
And if the answer is you
             G7       C      F   C   F   C  F  C  F C
Then I'll be back to-morrow
