Driftwood on the River  Ernest Tubb

Driftwood On The River
I'm just drift-[A]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 t[E7]ired of wishing for what can not [A]be
I may meet some bit of drift-wood lost s[E7]ame 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 w[E7]ander on to keep my ron-[A]da-voo
Though I drift through town and city I can n[E7]ever stay
For I find no place to call my home sweet h[A]ome
I don't ask for help or pitty I just [D]go my way
All I'm p[E7]raying for is peace to dream a[A]lone
I'm just drift-wood on the river and I'm d[E7]rifting on
Till this weary river meets the deep blue s[A]ea
Where the deep blue sea may help me to forg[D]et some-one
Yes the c[E7]areless one who has forgotton [A]me
In my heart I don't feel bitter over w[E7]hat has been
I feel sorry for the one I must for[A]get
And instead of being some-one with the w[D]orld to win
I'm just dri[E7]ft-wood on the river of [A]regret
