Default Front driveshaft trouble

I have a 1977 f150 4x4 The u joints are good, but when you grab the front driveshaft (while in place) you can move it up and down or side to side. if you try too turn the driveshaft no play. I am sure this is not good but what do I do can it be fixed or do I look for a new one. And where do I find one.

You sure the play isn't in the transfer case or front axle?

Thank you for your comment. We removed the driveshaft. The play is at the slip yoke I'm new to all this maybe this is normal
