                Modern Day Drifter


(Capo 2)
Intro: D Em7 C9(add9)
       D Em7 Em7 

 D                     Em7
I'm gonna be a modern day drifter
 C9              D
Get out while I can
                                    Dsus
Gonna trade in this life I've been livin'
 G                    Em7
For a pocket full of sand

And a modern day drifter
                                D
Don't have to tell no one his plans


 D                                    Em7          
I'm gonna find that long stretch of highway
 C9                    D
Where no one knows my name
                                  Dsus
Where as long as the sky just goes on
 G                  Em7
And it's never the same
                                   D
A modern day drifter don't ever complain

Chorus:
F#m  G    A    D
Bye bye, high life
 F#m   G        A
Feels like the right time
       F#m  G
To say so long
          A     D
Keep on goin' strong
               F#m  G        A (see bottom)
And I'll just keep on bein' gone


             D                     Em7
'Cause I'm gonna be a modern day drifter
 C9    D
Yes I am
                             Dsus
Gonna slip this ring off my finger
  G                  Em7 
'Cause everybody understands

That a modern day drifter's got
                         D
Nothin' but time on his hands

Solo (Play verse chords)

Bye bye, high life
It feels like the right time
To say so long
Keep on goin' strong
And I'll just keep bein' gone

'Cause I'm gonna be a modern day drifter
Oh, yes I am
Gonna slip this ring off my finger
'Cause everybody understands
That a modern day drifter's got
Nothin' but time on his hands 

( I like to play this at the end of the 
chorus with the A chord)
