Verse:
GG chord            GmGm chord
Schoolbag in hand
          DD chord            GbmGbm chord
She leaves home in the early morning
GG chord      GmGm chord
Waving goodbye
      DD chord            GbmGbm chord
With an absent-minded smile
GG chord          AbmAbm chord
I watch her go
      DD chord            GbmGbm chord
With a surge of that well-known sadness
GG chord            AA chord            Dsus4Dsus4 chord       DD chord
And I have to sit down for a while  
    GG chord                  AA chord            DD chord      GbGb chord
The feeling that I'm loosing her forever 
GG chord                  AA chord         DD chord
And without really entering her world
GG chord               AA chord                  DD chord          AA chord            Dsus4Dsus4 chord      DD chord
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter, that funny little girl 
 
Chorus:
GG chord                  AA chord            DD chord
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          GbmGbm chord      EmEm chord
I try to capture every minute
          DD chord
The feeling in it
                  AA chord            Dsus4Dsus4 chord      DD chord
Slipping through my fingers all the time
            GG chord            DD chord
Do I really see what's in her mind
            GbmGbm chord            EmEm chord
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
            DD chord
She keeps on growing
                  AA chord            Dsus4Dsus4 chord      DD chord
Slipping through my fingers all the time
 
Verse:
GG chord            GmGm chord
Sleep in our eyes
      DD chord      GbmGbm chord
Her and me at the breakfast table
GG chord      GmGm chord
Barely awake
DD chord                  GbmGbm chord
I let precious time go by
GG chord            GmGm chord
Then when she's gone
            DD chord      GbmGbm chord
There's that odd melancholy feeling
GG chord            AA chord            Dsus4Dsus4 chord      DD chord
And a sense of guilt I can't deny
      GG chord            AA chord      DD chord
What happened to the wonderful adventures
      GG chord      AA chord                DD chord
The places I had planned for us to go -slipping through my fingers all the time-
GG chord                  AA chord
Well some of that we did
            DD chord
But most we didn't
AA chord                  Dsus4Dsus4 chord      DD chord
And why I just don't know
 
Chorus:
GG chord                  AA chord            DD chord
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          GbmGbm chord      EmEm chord
I try to capture every minute
          DD chord
The feeling in it
                  AA chord            Dsus4Dsus4 chord      DD chord
Slipping through my fingers all the time
            GG chord            DD chord
Do I really see what's in her mind
            GbmGbm chord            EmEm chord
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
            DD chord
She keeps on growing
                  AA chord            Dsus4Dsus4 chord      DD chord
Slipping through my fingers all the time
 
 
GG chord                  AA chord                  DD chord      GbmGbm chord
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
GG chord                   AA chord            DD chord
And save it from the funny tricks of time
GG chord                  AA chord
Slipping through my fingers 
 
 
GG chord            GmGm chord
Schoolbag in hand
DD chord                  GbmGbm chord
She leaves home in the early morning
GG chord      GmGm chord            DD chord            GbmGbm chord
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming patterns, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
