Peter Hammill - Easy to slip away (chords)



A- G F E-

    E-                               C 
My, friends, I never really thought you'd go,
    E-                            C 
but, then, we know that's the way it happens here.
    E-                            C
Now time is like cat's cradle in my hands:
   E-                         C          A- G  F  E- 
we gather up the strands much to slowly
   E- 
The refugees are gone... they
   C 
take their separate paths,
   E-                             A- 
obliterate the past: figures in an ash shroud.
 E-                              C 
Susie, I guess you're on your way to be a star,
   E-
but I don't know where you are: the only time I seem
            A-   
to see you is on T.V.
        G                 F 
It's so easy just to slip away...

E-
Mike!

It's a year or two since I've seen you...

I might
                                    C
have dropped you a line if I'd had time
           D
or the will.

  E-                     C         
It's my fault too; I play a hermit's role
        E-                           
of cars and stages, wages, supersoul
                         A- 
hardly ever seem to get outside these days.
     E-           B5                C 
So, dear friends, as we grow on we feel to grow away,
E- 
can only live in the hope that some day
        A-
it will all return.
         G                F
It's so easy just to slip away...
         G                F
It's so easy just to slip away...
