Yeah, I see what you're driving at Johan......but, for me, it's too Americanised. Drifter, as I understand it, means someone of no fixed abode that just 'drifts', alone, from place to place.
It is more poetic, as tramp wouldn't have sounded right, than hobo and hobo is the american vernacular for a tramp.

All 3 words, ostensibly, mean the same thing. But hobo, again just for me, doesn't fit with the Whitesnake vibe and was merely inserted to appeal to the US audience.
