                              "Drift Away"
                           (Mentor Williams)


[Intro]

          B F#/B E/B F#/B B        F#7sus  B
           v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
        e|-----------------|-----------------|---|
        B|-4---7-9---7---4-|-----------------|---|
        G|-4---6-9---6---4-|------------4--4-|---|

        E|-----------------|---------2-------|---|


[Verse 1]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Intro]

          B F#/B E/B F#/B B        F#7sus  B
           v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

        D|-4---8-9---8---4-|-----------2-----|---|
        A|-----------------|----------4------|---|
        E|-----------------|---------2-------|---|


[Verse 2]

         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
        I'm countin' on you   to carry me through


[Chorus]

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


[Intro]

          B F#/B E/B F#/B B        F#7sus  B
           v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
        e|-----------------|-----------------|---|
        B|-4---7-9---7---4-|-----------------|---|
        G|-4---6-9---6---4-|------------4--4-|---|
        D|-4---8-9---8---4-|-----------2-----|---|
        A|-----------------|----------4------|---|
        E|-----------------|---------2-------|---|


[Bridge]

        C#m
        And when my mind is free
        E                      B
        You know a melody can move me
        C#m
        And when I'm feelin' blue
        E                               F#
        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


[repeat chorus to fade - acappella first couple times]

What's with all the "slash" chords? I play it with straight barre chords and it sounds just fine.
