G chordG Em chordEm
Slip sliding away slip sliding away
G chordG D chordD C chordC D chordD G chordG
You know the nearer your destination the more you slip sliding away

Em chordEm G chordG
Whoah and I know a man he came from my hometown
Em chordEm D chordD C chordC C7 chordC7
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
G chordG Em chordEm
He said Dolores I live in fear
G chordG D chordD C chordC D chordD G chordG
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

[FF] to [CC] then xxxx xx [GG]

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 chordG and Em chordEm for a while and end on Em chordEm
