Intro: | B | F# B |

E                          B
 Day after day I'm more confused
E                   F#                        B
 And I look for the light through the pouring rain
E                                      B
 You know that's a game that I hate to lose
C#m                         E
 And I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame

    B
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
  F#                                       E
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

| B | F# B |

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

    B
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
  F#                                       E
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

| B | F# B |

C#m                       E                      B
 And when my mind is free, you know a melody can move me
C#m                        E                               F#
 And when I'm feelin' blue, the guitar's comin' through to soothe me

E                                     B
 Thanks for the joy that you've given me
E              F#                     B
 I want you to know I believe in your song
E                          B
 Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
C#m               E
 You help me along makin' me strong

    B
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
  F#                                       E
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
