Slip On By
Written by Allen Dukes, Blake Neesmith, Nathan Tomberlin & Chris Stevens
Recorded by Austin Webb

(Capo on 1)

Intro.:  |(C) |(Am) |(F) |(Dm)

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

(Chorus)
(C) I see the tears of a young bride, (Dm) the morning that we had our first (F) fight
I should've held her (G) tight
(C) And on the day that my momma died, (Dm) I hung up the phone and never said good-(F)-bye
Don't let it slip on, (G) don't let it slip on, don't let it slip on (C) by

Well he (C)looked up with tears in his eyes, said I'm (Am)not sure if you were looking for advice
There's just (F)something about you that reminds me (Dm) of me
It ain't (C)easy always looking back, but it (Am)seems these days that it's all I have
And what (F)hurts me the most is knowing what could have been and if I (Dm)listen real close sometimes I can

(Chorus)
(C) Hear the sound of my little boy (Dm) saying, "Daddy, can you come play with (F) me?"
But I was too bus-(G)-y
Then one day, (C) my baby grew up and went to war
(Dm) I never thought he'd be gone in the blink of an eye (F)
So, don't let it slip on, (G) don't let it slip on, don't let it slip on (C) by

I shook the old man's (Dm)hand and I thanked him and I drove (F)home as fast as I could go
Just to let her (C)know (Bb) that I (C)need her, that I (Am)love her
That I'm (F)never gonna let another moment like this (G)slip on by
Don't let it slip on (C) by

Solo:  / / / |(Dm) |(F) |(G) |

(C) We're only here for a little while (Dm) and God gives us only so much (F)precious time
Don't let it slip on, (G) don't let it slip on, don't let it slip on (C) by (Dm)
Don't let it slip on (F) by (C/G) -----
