I don't get it Rocknut... From what I know Coverdale wouldn't sing "hobo" when they aimed for the US market.
If I remember correctly "hobo" is only used on the original version and not on the later 1987 & US versions... so one would think that using "drifter" was more americanized(!)

"A hobo or bo is simply a migratory laborer (often penniless); he may take some longish holidays, but soon or late he returns to work. A tramp never works if it can be avoided; he simply travels. Lower than either is the bum, who neither works nor travels, save when impelled to motion by the police."
