Slip Slidin' Away

              G
Slip slidin' away
              Em
Slip slidin' away
             G                D
You know the nearer your destination
    C                 D       G
The more you're slip slidin' away

         Em7
I know a man
             G6
He came from my home town
            C               D
He wore his passion for his woman
        C
Like a thorny crown
          G
He said Delores
          Em7
I live in fear
            G            D
My love for you's so overpowering
    C           D           G
I'm afraid that I will disappear

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away

I know a woman
Became a wife
These are the very words she uses
To describe her life
She said a good day
Ain't got no rain
She said a bad day's when I lie in bed
And think of things that might have been

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away

             Em D
And I know a father
          G
Who had a son
             C                D
He longed to tell him all the reasons
         C               C7
For the things he'd done
          G6
He came a long way
          Em7
Just to explain
              G              D
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
        C                 D            G
Then he turned around and headed home again

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away

          Em
God only knows
              G
God makes his plan
         C           D
The information's unavailable
       C          C7
To the mortal man
            G6
We work our jobs
            Em7
Collect our pay
              G                D
Believe we're gliding down the highway
        C               D        G
When in fact we're slip slidin' away

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
