This is my first posting. I hope it helps others out there who have been looking
for the chords to this song. I'm doing it from the song I remember in my head. I believe it's pretty

are needed
[G]Slipping [Em]away what [Am]can I say[D]
[G]Won't you [Em]stay inside me [C]month of [Cmaj7]May[Am]
[G]And hold on [Em]to me [Am]golden d[A5]ay, slippin' [D]away[G]
[C/Cmaj]Sunshine [Am]on m[A5]y wal[D]l
[G]to keep my [Em]mind on the [Am]things I'm [D/G]saying
[C/Cmaj]Footsteps i[Am]n t[A5]he h[D]all t[G]o tell me I[Em]'ve been this w[C]ay befo[Am]re
[G]Let it [Em]rain sweet [Am]Mary-[D]Jane
[G]Let it wash your [Em]love down [C]all [Am]around me
[G]Come ins[Em]ide and [C]put it d[D]own. Let it [G]rain
[G]I've been trying [F]hard to find a [C]way to let [D]you [G]know
[G]That [C]we can make it [F]shine [C]most [F]all [C]the [G]tim[C/G]e

[G7]Walk me down old [Bb]funky street
[C]Lord knows I feel [Eb]good enough to eat
[G7]Hold my [A]soul. [Bb]I sure am fond of [C7]my rock and roll
When I go to sleep at night
I want to hear a slide guitar
When I'm feeling loose and right
Riding in my automobile
Boney Maroney and Peggy Sue
Rocking pneumonia and boogey-woogey flu
Hold my soul. I'm sure enough fond of my rock and roll
Good God
