Chords: D, Em7, G, Em7 

       D                                  
Early morning by the riverside,
        Em7
Saw an old man waiting for a bite,
G                                         Em7
We started talking and he took me back in time.
       
          D
He said I was young, and thought I'd always be,
        Em7
Then I woke up, now I'm 83
           G
There's so much I missed, oh how I wish
            Em7
I could get back all that time I wasted.


Chorus:
D
I see the tears of a young bride
Em7                             G
The morning that we had our first fight.
                    Em7
I should've held her tight.
D
And on the day that my momma died,
Em7                                G
I hung up the phone and never said goodbye.

Don't let it slip on,
Em7
Don't let it slip on,
                     D
Don't let it slip on by.


Verse 2
         D
Well, he looked up, tears in his eyes.
Em7
Said I'm not sure if you were looking for advice.
             G                                     Em7
There's just something about you that reminds me of me.

         D
It ain't easy always looking back,
      Em7
But it seems these days that it's all I have.
     G
What hurts me the most is knowing what could have been,
         Em7
And if I listen real close sometimes I can

Chorus
D
Hear the sound of my little boy
Em7                                         G
Saying, daddy can you please come play with me?
              Em7
But I was too busy.
               D
Then one day, my baby grew up and went to war.
Em7                                             G
I never thought he'd be gone in the blink of an eye.

So don't let it slip on,
Em7
Don't let it slip on,
                     D
Don't let it slip on by.


Bridge
                      Em7                G
I shook the old man's hand and I thanked him.
            Em7                     G
And I drove home as fast as I could go.
                D
Just to let her know...

D
That I need her,
       Em7
That I love her,
         G                                        Em7
That I'm never gonna let another moment like this slip on by.
                     D
Don't let it slip on by.

D
We're only here for a little while,
Em7                           G
And God gives us only so much precious time.

So don't let it slip on,
Em7
Don't let it slip on,
                     D            Em7
Don't let it slip on by.
                     G            Em7
Don't let it slip on by.
