Driftwood On The River

	  		               A                          E7 
I'm just drift-wood on the river floating down the tide 
                                           A 
I don't care where this old river, carries me 
                                         D 
I keep drifting just because my heart is broken inside 
         E7                               A 
And I'm tired of wishing for what can not be 
 
 
 
                                        E7 
I may meet some bit of drift-wood lost same as I 
                                        A 
Share a hand shake and a tender tear or two 
                                        D 
But It's always good luck now we got to say good-bye 
        E7                      A 
I must wander on to keep my ron-da-voo 
 
 
                                            E7 
Though I drift through town and city I can never stay 
                                           A 
For I find no place to call my home sweet home 
                                     D 
I don't ask for help or pitty I just go my way 
         E7                            A 
All I'm praying for is peace to dream alone 
 
                                          E7 
I'm just drift-wood on the river and I'm drifting on 
                                           A 
Till this weary river meets the deep blue sea 
 
 
                                           D 
Where the deep blue sea may help me to forget some-one 
         E7                            A 
Yes the careless one who has forgotton me 
                                      E7 
In my heart I don't feel bitter over what has been 
                                   A 
I feel sorry for the one I must forget 
                                        D 
And instead of being some-one with the world to win 
            E7                      A 
I'm just drift-wood on the river of regret
