       C                                  
Early morning by the riverside,
        Am7
Saw an old man waiting for a bite,
C                                         Am7
We started talking and he took me back in time.
       
          C
He said I was young, and thought I'd always be,
        Am7
Then I woke up, now I'm 83
           C
There's so much I missed, oh how I wish
            Am7
I could get back all that time I wasted.


Chorus:
C
I see the tears of a young bride
Am7                             C
The morning that we had our first fight.
                    Am7
I should've held her tight.
C
And on the day that my momma died,
Am7                                C
I hung up the phone and never said goodbye.

Don't let it slip on,
Am7
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.
Am7
Said I'm not sure if you were looking for advice.
             C                                     Am7
There's just something about you that reminds me of me.

         C
It ain't easy always looking back,
      Am7
But it seems these days that it's all I have.
     C
What hurts me the most is knowing what could have been,
         Am7
And if I listen real close sometimes I can

Chorus
C
Hear the sound of my little boy
Am7                                         C
Saying, daddy can you please come play with me?
              Am7
But I was too busy.
               C
Then one day, my baby grew up and went to war.
Am7                                             C
I never thought he'd be gone in the blink of an eye.

So don't let it slip on,
Am7
Don't let it slip on,
                     C
Don't let it slip on by.


Bridge
                      Am7                C
I shook the old man's hand and I thanked him.
            Am7                     C
And I drove home as fast as I could go.
                C
Just to let her know...

C
That I need her,
       Am7
That I love her,
         C                                        Am7
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,
Am7                           C
And God gives us only so much precious time.

So don't let it slip on,
Am7
Don't let it slip on,
                     C            Am7
Don't let it slip on by.
                     C            Am7
Don't let it slip on by.
