       D                                  

Early morning by the riverside,

        Em7

Saw an old man waiting for a bite,

G                                         Em7

We started talking and he took me back in time.

       

          D

He said I was young, and thought I'd always be,

        Em7

Then I woke up, now I'm 83

           G

There's so much I missed, oh how I wish

            Em7

I could get back all that time I wasted.

Chorus:

D

I see the tears of a young bride

Em7                             G

The morning that we had our first fight.

                    Em7

I should've held her tight.

D

And on the day that my momma died,

Em7                                G

I hung up the phone and never said goodbye.

Don't let it slip on,

Em7

Don't let it slip on,

                     D

Don't let it slip on by.

Verse 2

         D

Well, he looked up, tears in his eyes.

Em7

Said I'm not sure if you were looking for advice.

             G                                     Em7

There's just something about you that reminds me of me.

         D

It ain't easy always looking back,

      Em7

But it seems these days that it's all I have.

     G

What hurts me the most is knowing what could have been,

         Em7

And if I listen real close sometimes I can

Chorus

D

Hear the sound of my little boy

Em7                                         G

Saying, daddy can you please come play with me?

              Em7

But I was too busy.

               D

Then one day, my baby grew up and went to war.

Em7                                             G

I never thought he'd be gone in the blink of an eye.

So don't let it slip on,

Em7

Don't let it slip on,

                     D

Don't let it slip on by.

Bridge

                      Em7                G

I shook the old man's hand and I thanked him.

            Em7                     G

And I drove home as fast as I could go.

                D

Just to let her know...

D

That I need her,

       Em7

That I love her,

         G                                        Em7

That I'm never gonna let another moment like this slip on by.

                     D

Don't let it slip on by.

D

We're only here for a little while,

Em7                           G

And God gives us only so much precious time.

So don't let it slip on,

Em7

Don't let it slip on,

                     D            Em7

Don't let it slip on by.

                     G            Em7

Don't let it slip on by.
