Driftwood On The River   Ernest Tubb

Driftwood On The River
by Ernst Tubb

I'm just (A)drift-wood on the river floating (E7)down the tide
I don't care where this old river, carries (A)me
I keep drifting just because my heart is (D)broken inside
And I'm (E7)tired of wishing for what can not (A)be
I may meet some bit of drift-wood lost (E7)same as I
Share a hand shake and a tender tear or (A)two
But It's always good luck now we got to (D)say good-bye
I must (E7)wander on to keep my ron-(A)da-voo

Though I drift through town and city I can (E7)never stay
For I find no place to call my home sweet (A)home
I don't ask for help or pitty I just (D)go my way
All I'm (E7)praying for is peace to dream (A)alone
I'm just drift-wood on the river and I'm (E7)drifting on
Till this weary river meets the deep blue (A)sea

Where the deep blue sea may help me to (D)forget some-one
Yes the (E7)careless one who has forgotton (A)me
In my heart I don't feel bitter over (E7)what has been
I feel sorry for the one I must (A)forget
And instead of being some-one with the (D)world to win
I'm just (E7)drift-wood on the river of (A)regret
