Driftin' Too Far From Shore 1

Bob Dylan © 1986 Special Rider Music

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


26 July 1984
cd imgKNOCKED OUT LOADED

I didn't know that you'd be a-leavin'
Who you thought you were talkin' to
I said to you maybe we're even
Or maybe i'm one up on you.

I sent you all my money
Just like i did before
I try to reach you honey
But you're driftin' too far from shore.

Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore.

I ain't gonna get lost in this current
I don't like playin' cat an' mouse
No gentleman likes makin' love to a servant
Especially when he's in his father's house.

I never could guess your weight baby
Never needed to call you my whore
I always thought you were straight baby
But you're driftin' too far from shore.

Well driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore.

Well these times an' these tunnels are haunted
The bottom of the barrel is too
I waited years sometimes, for what i wanted
Everybody can't be as lucky as you.

Never no more do i wonder
Why you don't never play with me any more
An' any moment you can go under
Cause you're driftin' too far from shore.

Yeah driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore.

You an' me we had completeness
I'd give you all of what i could provide
We weren't on the wrong side, sweetness,
We were the wrong side.

I've already ripped out the phones, honey
You can't walk the streets in a war
I can finish this alone honey
You're driftin' too far from shore.  up

cd imgTEMPEST STORM (T-536)

I see you leaning on the window
I said i could not wait
I'm leavin' home by mornin'
I didn't even hesitate.

I sent you all my money
Just like i did before
I try to reach you honey
But you're driftin' too far from shore.

Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore.

I seen you leave your letter
Over your harder hill
I hope you're feelin' better
Roll down your window sill.

I sent you all my money
Just like i did before
I try to reach you honey
But you're driftin' too far from shore.

Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore.

Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore.

I got to leave this morning
Over your head are new???
All that was only warnin'
Write out their cheques for you.

I sent you all my money
Just like i did before
I try to reach you honey
But you're driftin' too far from shore.

Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore
Driftin' too far from shore ...  up
