"Drifter" as written by and Stephen Percy Harris....
Walk away!

Look out now, baby won't you take me away,
Sittin' here its gonna be a new day.
Gotta sing my song and I can't go wrong,
Gotta keep on roaming, gotta sing my song.

What you feeling when you hold me tight?
I'm gonna cuddle up with you tonight, gonna get you feeling so secure.
listen child don't you see there's a cure?
Anywhere got to get you away, feels so good think it's gonna be a new day.
I'm gonna get my song till I can't go on,
I'm gonna keep on roaming gonna sing my song.

I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.
I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.

    General CommentWhoa!!! This song is super cool.
    One of the most under-rated Maiden song.
    The guitar solo at end is too good.
    Also love the way the song keeps on changing its tempo.

    General CommentYour right, IronBlackZepp. All of the other Maiden songs are about war, death and betrayal. I think when they had Paul, they were trying to go for the 'Punk' rock look. Think about it, Prowler, Running Free, Drifter, then we get to Bruce, The Number of the Beast, Hallowed Be Thy Name, then we get to BLAZE, Futureal, Man on Edge. All of them are AWESOME songs, but with utterly different subject matter.

    General CommentThe only thing better than Dianno's voclas are the drumming that comes in mid verse on some the lines. Just a great underrated Maiden Gem!
