*Verse1
Had me a woman down in Tennessee
Boy she used to love me
Free fever got me and I had to go
I never seen that woman no more
*Verse 2
New York City is a place I been
I was there one time with a travellin' band
Young girl there wanted me to stay
I think she wanted me to pay
*Verse3
Roll it out, roll it in
Here we go down the road again
Drifters life is a drifters wife
Don't say I didn't tell you so
*Instrumental Break

*Verse 4
Travellin'man now he don't know
Only what he hears on the radio
Politics and money don't bother him
Only good lookin'women and a bottle of gin
*Verse 5
Portland, Oregon, to the Mexican line
Boy let me tell you the women are fine
If you don't hang around there very long
They'll never ever know you're gone
*Verse 6
Roll it out, roll it in. Here we go down the road again
Drifter's Wife is a drifter's life, don't say I didn't tell you so
