Slipping Away
recorded by Jean Shepard
written by Bill Anderson

G                 C            G
Monday's promise  is Tuesday's lie
                  D7          G
Saturday's party  is Sunday's fight
                   C            G
Something's wrong  with you and I
                        D7         G
Love's gone wrong  that used to be right
                   C        G
And I can feel it  slipping away
Slowly slowly slipping away
         C                  G
It'll be gone in a few more days
                      D7                         G
If we don't stop this love of ours from slipping away
                        C          G
Wednesday's kisses are Thursday's frowns
               D7            G
We can't live  two days in a row
                  C          G
When our world's  not upside down
               D7          G
Here we stand  watching it go
Repeat #2
               C           G
Roses are red  violets are blue
                D7          G
Sugar is sweet  some of the time
                       C          G
This puzzle's missing  a piece or two
                      D7            G
We've got the grapes  but never the wine
Repeat #2
