LYRICS

Slip slidin' away,
slip slidin' away,
you know the
nearer your destination,
the more you'er slip slidin' away.
Slip slidin' away,
slip slidin' away,
you know the
nearer your destination,
the more you'er 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, "Delores, I live in fear.
My love for you
is so overpowering,
I'm afraid 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.
I know a father
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 kiss his boy
as he lay sleepin'
Then, he turned around
and headed home again.

Slip slidin' away,
slip slidin' away,
you know the
nearer you're destination,
the more you're slip slidin' away.
God only knows.
God makes his plans.
The information 's unavailable
to the mortal man.
We work our jobs,
collect our pay.
Believe we're gliding
down the highway
when, infact, we're
slip slidin' away

Slip slidin' away,
slip slidin' away,
you know the nearer your destination,
the more you'er slip slidin' away.
Slip slidin' away,
slip slidin' away,
you know the
nearer your destination,
the more you'er slip slidin' away.
Slip slidin' away
mm mm mm mmm
Slip slidin' away
ay ay ay ay ay mmm.
mm mm mmm
mm mm mmm
