Drift Away – Song Lyrics & Fine Art

December 22nd, 2016 by Nikki Smith

Drift Away by Nikki Smith

I was happy to find out recently another way that my artwork really connects with music lovers: when paired with their favorite song lyrics or an inspirational quote. I discovered a very popular meme of my artwork paired with the lyrics to “Drift Away” (written by Mentor Williams, made famous by Dobie Gray and covered by tons of amazing musicians and bands.) So, I decided to make an “official” fine art version of the meme. Feel free to share this artwork socially (credit and a link highly appreciated) if it speaks to your soul. And if you really love it (or know someone who would), this is also available as a fine art print or home decor item here.

“Give me the beat boys

and free my soul

I wanna get lost

in your rock and roll

and drift away…”

And of course, a shout-out to the country music lovers with these alternate lyrics:

Drift Away Country by Nikki Smith

“Give me the beat boys

and free my soul

I wanna get lost

in your country song

and drift away…”

The Country version of this lovely artwork is available here, or you can find the original art (with no lyrics) here.

This was a fun adaptation to do with my artwork, so look for more in the future. If you have seen a favorite meme of my artwork or have a fun idea for one, do let me know!
