                                           DRIFT AWAY

  With apologies to Uncle Kracker, the original is still the best.
  I've included two different intros to this song. The original,
  And a much "cleaner", country version. I've included most,( if
  not all ) of the fill-in runs and a few of my own, have fun.

Intro 1 ( original )     h=hammer r=rake \=slide down /=slide up
                               rake=(pull-off)
