drifting blues lyrics – albert king

i’m drifting and drifting,
just like a ship out on the sea.
i’m drifting and drifting,
just like a ship out on the sea.
well i ain’t got n*body
in this world to care for me.

if my baby
would only take me back again.
if my baby
would only take me back again.
i would feel much better, darling,
and at least i’d have a friend.

i give you all my money,
tell me what more can i do.
i give you all my money,
tell me what more can i do.
you is a sweet little girl
but i swear you won’t be true.

i’m drifting and drifting,
just like a ship out on the sea.
i’m drifting and drifting,
just like a ship out on the sea.
because i ain’t got n*body
in this world to care for me.
