  • Hey now now, hey now now
    I'm driftin' back
    Hey now now, hey now now
    I'm driftin' back

    Dreaming about the way things sound now
    Write about them in my book
    Worry that you can't hear me now
    And feel the time I took

    To help you feel this feeling
    Let you ride along
    Dreaming about the way you feel now
    When you hear my song

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    In my meditation I block out all my thoughts
    When they come back I push them out
    Like Jesus had a rock

    They pushed in front of this cave now
    They rolled across the ground
    Hey now now, hey now now
    They rolled across the ground

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    Here's how I got my mantra
    Gave them thirty five bucks now
    Gave it to the Maharishi
    It went to the organization

    Excuse my religion
    Dreaming ‘bout the way things feel now
    Write it in my book
    Blocking out all the thoughts now

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    Hey now now, hey now now
    I'm driftin' back
    Hey now now, hey now now
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    I used to dig Picasso I used to dig Picasso
    Hey now now, hey now now I used to dig Picasso
    Then the big tech giant came along
    And turned him into wallpaper
    Hey now now, hey now now I used to dig Picasso

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    Don't want my mp3
    Don't want my mp3

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    When you hear my song now
    You only get five percent
    You used to get it all
    You used to get it all

    Blocking out my anger
    Blocking out my thoughts
    Blocking out my anger now
    Blocking out my thoughts

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back

    Gonna get me a hip hop haircut
    Gonna get a hip hop haircut
    Gonna get a hip hop haircut
    Hey now now, hey now now
    Hey now now, hey now now
    Blocking out my anger
    Finding my religion
    I might be a pagan

    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back
    I'm driftin' back Writer/s: NEIL YOUNG
