H P Lovecraft - The Drifter

rate me

<b>The Drifter</b> by <i>H.P. Lovecraft</i><br />I sat in the shade of your old apple orchard

I watch your big trucks rolling by now

I share the grape soda with a man from Dakota

I've seen a June bug in July now

I'm a drifter, I'm a loner

I've seen every city and town now

I pass by here and I'll die here

Some stranger will lower me down

I play basketball through the hoop of a barrel

I struggle to learn how to swim now

I used to think maybe I once was a baby

I only pretend I was him now

I only pretend I was him now

I'm a drifter, I'm a loner

I've seen every city and town now

I pass by here and I'll die here

Some stranger will lower me down, yeah

I envy the ship sailing out of your harbours

I swap dirty jokes with your butchers and barbers

I think silent thoughts while the jukebox is playing

And all of the time my own heart is saying

You're a drifter, you're a loner

You've seen every city and town now

You pass by here and you'll die here

Some stranger will lower you down, yeah
