Cue Sheet


Circle left
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
Allemande your corner, turn your partner by the right
Left allemande and weave the ring
Slip sliding away
Swing your partner, promenade
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Walk in and square thru 4
Go all the way and do a right & left thru
Veer left, ferris wheel
Square thru 3
Swing the corner and promenade
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away


You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

Slip Slidin' Away Lyrics ID: 1044

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away

Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
He said Dolores, I live in fear
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear


I know a woman, (who) became a wife
These are the very words she uses to describe her life
She said a good day ain't got no rain
She said a bad day is when I lie in the bed
And I think of things that might have been


And I know a father who had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd done
He came a long way just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and he headed home again


Whoah God only knows, God makes his plan
The information's unavailable to the mortal man
We're workin' our jobs, collect our pay
Believe we're gliding down the highway,
When in fact we're slip sliding away

Chorus repeats 2x

Lyrics by Paul Simon. 


I just love this music. Wonderful singingcall.
