Life's Gone and Slipped Away
recorded by Webb Pierce
written by 
Webb Pierce, Max Powel, Dee Moeller

C         F             C
Funny how life can slip away
Before you know what's happened it's come and gone
C                F                   C
You always think there'll be another day
F              C        G7                      C
But before you know it  life's gone and slipped away
                   F                     C
Ask the lonely man whose hair is silvery grey
If he can count the hearts he's broken in his days
C                      F               C
I'll bet he'll bow his head and softly say
F              C        G7                      C
Son before you know it  life's gone and slipped away
                  F                 C
I know a lady who lived her life at play
And I remember when she was so young and gay
C                 F               C
But now alone she cries for yesterday
F          C       G7                        C
Before she knew it life has gone and slipped away
F              C       G7                      C
Yes before you know it life's gone and slipped away
