Driftwood On The River recorded by Ernst Tubb written by John Klenner and Bob Miller
C G7 I'm just drift-wood on the river floating down the tide C I don't care where this old river carries me F I keep drifting just because my heart is broken inside G7 C And I'm tired of wishing for what can not be
G7 I may meet some bit of drift-wood lost same as I C Share a hand shake and a tender tear or two F But It's always good luck now we got to say good-bye G7 C I must wander on to keep my rendezvous
G7 Though I drift through town and city I can never stay C For I find no place to call my home sweet home F I don't ask for help or pity I just go my way G7 C All I'm praying for is peace to dream alone
G7 I'm just drift-wood on the river and I'm drifting on C Till this weary river meets the deep blue sea F Where the deep blue sea may help me to forget someone G7 C Yes the careless one who has forgotten me
G7 In my heart I don't feel bitter over what has been C I feel sorry for the one I must forget F And instead of being someone with the world to win G7 C I'm just drift-wood on the river of regret
