Slip Away

(Pat Robinson)



Grandpa the blacksmith
No man to mess with
Used to rock himself off to sleep

He was holding a picture
Of my older brother
When he passed away peacefully

A man of compassion
Very old fashioned
With not a lot extra to say

He said lean on the ways
Of the wind and the rain
And love will not slip away

CHORUS
Slip away, slip away
Love will not slip away
He said lean on the ways
Of the wind and the rain
And love will not slip away

Let the rain wash you clean
Let the wind blow your dreams
To the footsteps of the heavens above

While you're there say a prayer
For the ones still unaware
That we really can't give enough

CHORUS
