Key: G
Chorus: 
 G                             Em
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away 
              G               D          C                     G
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away 
 
 
                   Em7                    G
Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown 
             C                            C        C7
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown 
         G                Em7
He said Dolores, I live in fear 
             G              D           C         D         G 
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear 
 
Chorus 
 
I know a woman, (who) 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 is when I lie in the bed 
And I think of things that might have been 
 
Chorus 
 
And 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 kissed his boy as he lay sleeping 
Then he turned around and he headed home again 
 
Chorus 
 
Whoah God only knows, God makes his plan 
The information's unavailable to the mortal man 
We're workin' our jobs, collect our pay 
Believe we're gliding down the highway, when in fact we're slip sliding away
