Verse:
G            Gm
Schoolbag in hand
          D            Gbm
She leaves home in the early morning
G      Gm
Waving goodbye
      D            Gbm
With an absent-minded smile
G          Abm
I watch her go
      D            Gbm
With a surge of that well-known sadness
G            A            Dsus4       D
And I have to sit down for a while  
    G                  A            D      Gb
The feeling that I'm loosing her forever 
G                  A         D
And without really entering her world
G               A                  D          A            Dsus4      D
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter, that funny little girl 

Chorus:
G                  A            D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          Gbm      Em
I try to capture every minute
          D
The feeling in it
                  A            Dsus4      D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
            G            D
Do I really see what's in her mind
            Gbm            Em
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
            D
She keeps on growing
                  A            Dsus4      D
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Verse:
G            Gm
Sleep in our eyes
      D      Gbm
Her and me at the breakfast table
G      Gm
Barely awake
D                  Gbm
I let precious time go by
G            Gm
Then when she's gone
            D      Gbm
There's that odd melancholy feeling
G            A            Dsus4      D
And a sense of guilt I can't deny
      G            A      D
What happened to the wonderful adventures
      G      A                D
The places I had planned for us to go -slipping through my fingers all the time-
G                  A
Well some of that we did
            D
But most we didn't
A                  Dsus4      D
And why I just don't know

Chorus:
G                  A            D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          Gbm      Em
I try to capture every minute
          D
The feeling in it
                  A            Dsus4      D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
            G            D
Do I really see what's in her mind
            Gbm            Em
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
            D
She keeps on growing
                  A            Dsus4      D
Slipping through my fingers all the time


G                  A                  D      Gbm
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
G                   A            D
And save it from the funny tricks of time
G                  A
Slipping through my fingers 


G            Gm
Schoolbag in hand
D                  Gbm
She leaves home in the early morning
G      Gm            D            Gbm
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile

this makes me cry everytime because i remember the mamma mia! movie

Memes

Cry everytime i see that scene dont know why its just so emotional

nataliewoodishere

no matter what key you are in the chord on the ‘go’ if “i watch her go” is wrong. play the chord one to the left of that

hanniipii

the gbm on -2 isnt right, it should be fm

genevieve

strumming ideas anyone??

Unknown

I just play the chords as one strum and I don’t use the strumming patterns, I personally think it sounds good like that, any strumming patterns I try don’t sound as good.

Lemon

I agree:)

Alikush

I think +3 sounds the best

LlamaSpit

“I watch her go” should be G then A, not G then Abm

Lemon

I love this song so much and love how it sounds so much like the original!

analicia

Regarding the question of what strumming pattern to use, I think it’s more of a picking song. Or freestyle. However, if you feel the need to follow a steady pattern, I suggest DU DD U

side3

easier -2
