DRIFTWOOD ON THE RIVER (John Klenner / Bob Miller) Ernest Tubb Also recorded by : Wilf Carter; Don Gibson; George Hamilton IV; Grandpa Jones; Kitty Kallen; Bob King; Pam Linton; Osborne Brothers; Ray Price. I’m just driftwood on the river floating down the tide I don’t care where this old river carries me I keep drifting just because my heart is broken inside And I’m tired of wishing for what can not be I may meet some bit driftwood lost the same as I Share a handshake and a tender tear or two But it’s always good luck pal we’ve got to say goodbye I must wonder on to keep my rendezvous Though I drift from town to city I can never stay For I find no place to call my home sweet home I don’t ask for help or pity I just go my way All I’m praying for is peace to dream alone INSTRUMENTALS I’m just driftwood on the river and I’m driftin’ on Till this weary river meets the deep blue sea Where the deep blue sea may help me to forget someone Yes, the careless one who has forgotten me In my heart I don’t feel bitter over what has been I feel sorry for the one I must forget And in stead of being someone with the world to win I’m just driftwood on the river of regret (Contributed by lylemalone - February 2005)
