Slip Sliding Away  Simon Paul


You know the ne[G]arer your destina[D]tion

The [F]more you're slip [D]slidin  aw[G]ay
I know a [Em]man He came from my [G6]home town
He wore his p[C]assion for his w[D]oman
Like a [C]thorny crown He said D[G]elores
I live in fe[Em]ar  My love for y[G]ou is so over[D]powering
I'm[C] afraid that[D] I will dis[G]appear
Slip slidin awa[C]y Slip slidin aw[Em]ay
You know the nea[G]rer your destinat[D]ion
The [F]more you're slip [D]slidin a[C]way
I know a w[Em]oman Became a wif[G6]e
These are the v[C]ery words she u[D]ses
To des[C]cribe her life She said a [G]good day
Ain't got no [Em]rain
She said a [G]bad day's when I [D]lie in bed
And [C]think of [D]things that might have [G]been
Slip slidin awa[C]y Slip slidin aw[Em]ay
You know the ne[G]arer your destina[D]tion
F D G F,C,G
The more you're slip slidin away


And I know a f[Em]athe[D]r Who had a s[G]on
He longed to t[C]ell him all the r[D]easons
For the [C]things he'd done  [C]
He came a lon[G6]g way Just to [Em]explain
He kissed his [G]boy as he lay [D]sleeping
Then he [C]turned around and [D]headed home [G]again
Slip slidin awa[C]y Slip slidin aw[Em]ay
You know the n[G]earer your destin[D]ation
F D G F,C,G,F,C,G
The more you're slip slidin away
God only k[Em]nows God makes his pl[G]an

The infor[C]mation's una[D]vailable

To the [C]mortal man We work our[G] jobs Collect our p[Em]ay
Believe we're g[G]liding down the h[D]ighway
When in [C]fact we're slip [D]slidin aw[G]ay
Slip slidin awa[C]y Slip slidin away[Em]
You know the ne[G]arer your destina[D]tion
The [F]more you're slip [D]slidin aw[G]ay Slip slidin a[Em]way
You know the n[G]earer your destination
The [C]more you're slip [D]slidin [G]away
