Slip Slidin' Away

Paul Simon (1977)

intro: |: G Em :| C D G
G Em
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
G D C D G
You know the near your destination, the more you slip sliding away
 
Em G
Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown.
C D C C7
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown.
G Em
He said Dolores, I live in fear.
G D C D G
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear.
G Em
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away!
G D C D G
You know the near your destination, the more you slip sliding away.
 
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 
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away. 
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away. 
 
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 
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away. 
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away. 
 
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away. 
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away.

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