Driftin' Away


Written by Eric Andersen and Rick Danko. Album: Danko Fjeld Andersen
The lyrics are copyrighted. Please do not copy or redistribute.


Below are two versions of the chords for "Driftin' Away". The first version is meant for a full step down tuning (like Rick Danko played it) and the other is meant for standard tuning. Transcribed by Joey Calderone.


C             G
I'm driftin' away
C               G
Down a long dark highway
C             G
I looked back once
  Am          D
I can't look anymore
G          D
And if you find me
G              C
On some lonesome shore
Am            D
You wouldn't have
            G
To look for more

G             D
You touched a dream
G           C
You broke a heart
Am  G             D
Now wasn't that a shame
C           D
Heaven must know
G            C
I gave all i could
Bm             Em
Can't give you more
C                   D
Please don't stand outside
      G
Of my door

I'm driftin' away
Down a long dark highway
I looked back once
I can't look anymore
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more

You call on the phone
You say you're alone
What am i supposed
To do about that
Words they can cut
Cut deep like a knife
Right to the core
Please don't stand outside
Of my door

I'm driftin' away
Down a long dark highway
I looked back once
I can't look anymore
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more

Don't write me a letter
I don't want to know
Don't say you've found
Somebody new
If it's somebody else
Don't tell me who, why, or
What for
Please
Don't stand
Outside of my door

I'm driftin' away
Down a long dark highway
I looked back once
I can't look anymore
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more

Bb            F
I'm driftin' away
Bb                 F
Down a long dark highway
Bb             F
I looked back once
  Gm          C
I can't look anymore
F          C
And if you find me
F             Bb
On some lonesome shore
Gm           C
You wouldn't have
            F
To look for more

F              C
You touched a dream
F           Bb
You broke a heart
Gm  F             C
Now wasn't that a shame
Bb           C
Heaven must know
F             Bb
I gave all i could
Am             Dm
Can't give you more
Bb                   C
Please don't stand outside
      F
Of my door

I'm driftin' away
Down a long dark highway
I looked back once
I can't look anymore
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more

You call on the phone
You say you're alone
What am i supposed
To do about that
Words they can cut
Cut deep like a knife
Right to the core
Please don't stand outside
Of my door

I'm driftin' away
Down a long dark highway
I looked back once
I can't look anymore
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more

Don't write me a letter
I don't want to know
Don't say you've found
Somebody new
If it's somebody else
Don't tell me who, why, or
What for
Please
Don't stand
Outside of my door

I'm driftin' away
Down a long dark highway
I looked back once
I can't look anymore
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more
And if you find me
On some lonesome shore
You wouldn't have
To look for more
