1st Verse
---------

 E                        B  
Day after day I'm more confused 

 E                                           B
But I look for the light through the pourin' rain 
 E                                       B
You know, that's a game, that I hate to loose 
 C#m                         E                                    
And I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame 


Chorus
------

 B
Give me the beat boys and free my soul 
 F#                                        E
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away 
 B
Give me the beat boys and free my soul 
 F#                                        E         D#5 C#5 B5 G#5 F#5 B    Riff 01
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away (won't you take me away)


2nd Verse 
---------

 E                                  B
Beginin' to think, that I'm wastin' time 
 E                                  B
And I don't understand the things I do 
 E                           B
The world outside looks so unkind 
 C#m                  E
I'm countin' on you, you can carry me through 


Chorus
------

 B
Give me the beat boys and free my soul

 F#                                        E         D#5 C#5 B5 G#5 F#5 B    Riff 01
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away (won't you take me away)


Bridge
------

 C#m             
And when my mind is free 
 E                       B
You know your melody can move me 
 C#m
And when I'm feelin' blue 
 E                            C#
The guitars comin' through to soothe me


3rd Verse
--------- 

 E                              B
Thanks for the joy you've given me 
 E                                   B
I want you to know I believe in your song 
 E                             B
And rhythm, and rhyme, and harmony 
 C#m                  E
You helped me along, you're makin' me strong
