You know I could not stay for long
When you asked me to come over
In the wee hour of the morning
I said I could not let the sunrise catch me sleepin'
And that is why I'm givin' you fair warning
And you might have loved me
Like I never, ever have been loved before
Your front door is open
And I've got to keep on movin'
So I will stay with you a while
And then I'll let my hitchhike thumb
Take me to where I wanna
Because I've got to keep on searching
For dream that I've been seekin'
Since I left my Oklahoma
And who's to stay but that I might be back tomorrow
If I find there's only sorry you may see me
From your window sill next morning
I'm a drifter
And I've seen the rain
And I've felt the pain
The pain that comes with loneliness
So I drift from town to town
Seachin' all around looking for the answer to my sorrow
And if the answer is you
Then I'll be back tomorrow
Let's make the most of time
Before the break of day
But don't try to make me stay
If I don't want to
Because I've got to keep on searchin'
For the dream and can't bind me
With the smile words "I love you"
But if I realize the dream that I've been searchin' for
Is waiting here behind your door
Then I'll come back to stay
If you still want me to
