driftin’ too far from shore lyrics – bob dylan

i didn’t know that you’d be leavin’
or who you thought you were talkin’ to.
i figure maybe we’re even
or maybe i’m one up on you.

i send you all my money
just like i did before.
i tried to reach you honey,
but you’re driftin’ too far from sh*r*.

driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*

i ain’t gonna get lost in this current,
i don’t like playing cat and mouse.
no gentleman likes making 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 wh*r*.
i always thought you were straight, baby,
but you’re driftin’ too far from sh*r*.

driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*

well these times and 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.
at any moment you could go under,
’cause you’re driftin’ too far from sh*r*.

driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*
driftin’ too far from sh*r*

you and me we had completeness,
i 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 sh*r*.
