Intro/verse: C, Am, F, Dm
Chorus: C, Dm, F, G

       C                                  
Early morning by the riverside,
        Am
Saw an old man waiting for a bite,
F                                         Dm
We started talking and he took me back in time.
       
          C
He said I was young, and thought I'd always be,
        Am
Then I woke up, now I'm 83
           F
There's so much I missed, oh how I wish
            Dm
I could get back all that time I wasted.


Chorus:
C
I see the tears of a young bride
Dm                             F
The morning that we had our first fight.
                    G
I should've held her tight.
C
And on the day that my momma died,
Dm                                F
I hung up the phone and never said goodbye.

Don't let it slip on,
G
Don't let it slip on,
                     C
Don't let it slip on by.


Verse 2
         C
Well, he looked up, tears in his eyes.
Am
Said I'm not sure if you were looking for advice.
             F                                    Dm
There's just something about you that reminds me of me.

         C
It ain't easy always looking back,
      Am
But it seems these days that it's all I have.
     F
What hurts me the most is knowing what could have been,
         Dm
And if I listen real close sometimes I can

Chorus
C
Hear the sound of my little boy
Dm                                         F
Saying, daddy can you please come play with me?
              G
But I was too busy.
               C
Then one day, my baby grew up and went to war.
Dm                                             F
I never thought he'd be gone in the blink of an eye.

So don't let it slip on,
G
Don't let it slip on,
                     C
Don't let it slip on by.


Bridge
                      Dm                
I shook the old man's hand and I thanked him.
            C                    F
And I drove home as fast as I could go.
                Bb
Just to let her know...

C
That I need her,
       Am
That I love her,
         F                                        Dm
That I'm never gonna let another moment like this slip on by.
                     C
Don't let it slip on by.

C
We're only here for a little while,
Dm                           F
And God gives us only so much precious time.

So don't let it slip on,
G
Don't let it slip on,
                     C            Dm
Don't let it slip on by.
                     F           G
Don't let it slip on by.
