This is a simplified version, suitable for strumming, of "Don't Drive Me Away" as performed by R C Smith
(aka Robert Curtis Smith) - see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vy1ueGSZipY
This version is in the original key of E, played with no capo.
Play with a swing feel. The E, A and B/A chords start on beat 1 of each bar while the 7th chords start on the
"and" of beat 2. On the record the song fades out over the last line of the final chorus. You could just
repeat the last line a few times before stopping.
A later version of the song was released by Sam Cooke under the name "Please Don't Drive Me Away".
