lyrics

Ohhh slip away

Got a sudden urge to write a country song
A long, long way from where I come
A long, long way from the city,
Where the jazz nuts tell me I'm not enough
The folkies tell me I've gone too far
And the rock 'n' roll boys, you know what they say?
What else can you play?
The question is "are you fit enough?"
You know even sometimes a girl can play rough
But why do we always have to end it in blood and guts?
The brightest star lights up the day
But the brightest star must sometimes slip away

Ohhh slip away

I just met a boy, a folkie at heart
Said I'd never ever marry, think I might start
He brightened up my day
Though I'm not seeing anybody now
There's always a catalyst, the old love that hangs around
The brighter stars slip away
The brightest star lights up the day
But the brightest star must sometimes slip away

Ohhh slip away

As a kid all I wanted was a simple song
All I ever wanted was to sing along
That's the way I think this life was meant to be
And tell me I sound like an old cliche
But it's not the music, it's the way you play it
I never had a problem, letting my feelings get in the way
And I'm not gonna end up a faded old dream
About hanging to a star in the moonlight

Ohhh slip away
