Chords And Lyrics

Demo Tips & Pdf

A great song here that was not put on a previous album but ended up on his first Greatest Hits album in 1977 and released as a single. How does a song end up on a greatest hits album if has never been released prior to a greatest hits album? Not sure but the song did well and The Oak Ridge Boys sang backup on this song.

Slip Sliding Away Lyrics

Slip slidin' away - Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip slidin' away

I know a man - he came from my home town
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
He said Dolores - I live in fear, my love for you's so overpowering
I'm afraid that I will disappear

Slip slidin' away - Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip slidin' away

I know a woman - 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's when I lie in bed
And think of things that might have been

Slip slidin' away - Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip slidin' away

And I know a fa-ther 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 headed home again

Slip slidin' away - Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip slidin' away

God only knows , God makes his plan
The information's unavailable to the mortal man
We're working our jobs, collect our pay
Believe we're gliding down the highway when in fact we're slip slidin' away

Slip slidin' away - Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip slidin' away

Slip slidin' away - Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip slidin' away
