Capo First Fret
Chorus:
              G
Slip slidin' away
              Em
Slip slidin' away
               G              D 
You know the nearer your destination
      C               D       G
The more you're slip slidin' away
           Em
I know a man
             G 
He came from my home town
              C             D
He wore his passion for his woman
        C          C7
Like a thorny crown
           G
He said Delores
           Em
I live in fear
            G            D
My love for you's so overpowering
      C           D            G 
I'm afraid that I__ will disappear

Chorus
           Em
I know a woman
          G
Became a wife
                C             D
These are the very words she uses
       C             C7
To describe her life
             G   
She said a good day
              Em
Ain't got no rain
            G                 D  
She said a bad day's when I lie in bed
      C            D                 G
And think of things that might have been

Chorus
F  C7  G
              Em D  
And I know a fath-er
           G
Who had a son
              C                  D           C              C7        
He longed to tell him all the reasons for things he'd done
            G
He came a long way
           Em
Just to explain
              G                D
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
          C                 D           G
Then he turned around and headed home again

Chorus
F   C7   G        F   C7   G

          Em
God only knows
                G
God makes his plan
          C            D
The information's unavailable
         C        C7
To the mortal man
            G
We work our jobs
            Em
Collect our pay
                 G                D
Believe we're gliding down the highway
          C                       G
When in fact we're slip slidin' away

Chorus
