Drifting Away 
Recorded by Roy Orbison
written by Bill Dees and Roy Orbison

Sadness slips into the room
On silent steps of sorrow
G7 C
Stealing sleep and all my dreams
D7 G7
Where will we be tomorrow

C Dm
Lying with you crying with you drifting
G7 C
Talking till dawn yet we go on drifting
Don’t understand where we began just drifting apart
Em Dm C
Drifting apart feeling alone drifting away

Dm G7 C
We can’t seem to work it out drifting from day to day
Dm G7 Am
Wasn’t it all about drifting away
G7 C
Drifting away drifting away losing the feeling
And now the music of the song is almost gone
That we used to play
Dm C F G7
From sweet surrender from drifting away drif-ting

C Dm
Two lovers lost two rivers crossed drifting
G7 C
Two bridges burned no lesson learned drifting
C7 F
Lonely together hurting each other still we can’t say that it’s over
Dm Am
Can we bring back yesterday
Dm G7 C Am
Will we be fore-ver forever drifting a-way
F G7 C
Drifting drifting a-way
