================================


        Driftin' man
        hitchhiking out to Saskatchewan
        Got big plans
        to build a house upon this land

        Shooting down the turnpike
        doin' 95 or maybe more
        This driver's crazy
        bein' so drunk and loaded

        Driftin' man
        hitchhiking out to Saskatchewan
        Got big plans
        to build a house upon this land

        Oh-oh

        K.C., don't it make you crazy
        living by the water say hello
        K.C., don't it make you crazy
        living by the water say hello

        Say hello
        hello to my daughter
        Hello, hello
        from a driftin' man

        Tell her I'm tied up
        but I'll soon be comin' home
        Hello
        hello from a driftin' man

        Hello, hello
        hello from a driftin' man
        Hello
        from a driftin' man

        From a driftin' man

        Hello, hello
