Slip Slidin' Away:Paul Simon.
Album - Greatest Hits, Etc. - Single went
to #5 in 1977.

CHORUS:
Em            G                  Em
Slip slidin' away..slip slidin' away.
             G                 D
You know the nearer your destination,
    C                D        G
the more you're slip slidin' away.

#1.
         Em                G
I know a man..he came from my home town.
            Em              D
He wore his passion for his woman like a 
C
thorny crown.
               G               Em
He said, Dol...ores, I live in fear.
            G            D              C
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid 
       D       G
that I will disappear.

CHORUS:
Em            G                  Em
Slip slidin' away..slip slidin' away.
             G                 D
You know the nearer your destination,
    C                D        G
the more you're slip slidin' away.

#2.
         Em              G
I know a woman..became a wife.
              Em             D          C
These are the very words she uses to describe 

her life.
            G                      Em
She said, A good day..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:
Em            G                  Em
Slip slidin' away..slip slidin' away.
             G                 D
You know the nearer your destination,
    C                D        G
the more you're slip slidin' away.

#3.
         Em    D             G
I know a fath..er, who had a son.
             C                D
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the 
C
things he'd done.
          G                  Em
He came a long way just to explain.
              G             D
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping,
        C                 D           G    F C G
then he turned around and headed home again.

CHORUS:
Em            G                  Em
Slip slidin' away..slip slidin' away.
             G                 D
You know the nearer your destination,
    C                D        G
the more you're slip slidin' away.

#4. 
         Em                   G
God only knows..God makes his plan.
         Em         D                C
The information's unavailable to the mortal man.
                  G                 Em
We're working our jobs..collect our pay,
              G                D             
believe we're gliding down the highway,
        C               D       G
when in fact we're slip slidin' away.

CHORUS:
Em            G                  Em
Slip slidin' away..slip slidin' away.
             G                 D
You know the nearer your destination,
    C                D        G
the more you're slip slidin' away.

CHORUS:
Em            G                  Em
Slip slidin' away..slip slidin' away.
             G                 D
You know the nearer your destination,
    C                D        G
the more you're slip slidin' away.


A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.

I don't use the Em on the first word of the chorus. I just let the G from the end of the verse carry me over. Otherwise, I love it!
