Slip Sliding Away

Paul Simon

 GEm
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
 GDCDG
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away

Verse:
 EmG
Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown
 GEmCC7
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown   
 GEm
He said Dolores, I live in fear
 GDCDG
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear

Chorus x1

I know a woman, (who) 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 is when I lie in the bed
And I think of things that might have been

Chorus x1

(F to C then back to G)

And I know a father who had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd done
He came a long way just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and he headed home again

Chorus x1

Whoah God only knows, God makes his plan
The information's unavailable to the mortal man
We're workin' our jobs, collect our pay
Believe we're gliding down the highway, when in fact we're slip sliding away

Chorus x2

Then play G and Em for a while and end on Em
