ABBA - Slipping Through My Fingers: chords

   A#         A#m/C#
Schoolbag in hand
            F          Dm
She leaves home in the early morning
A#          A#m/C#
Waving goodbye
        F               Am
With an absent-minded smile
A#           A#m
I watch her go
        F             Dm
With a surge of that well-known sadness
A#             Csus4    C      F
And I have to sit down for a while

     A#               C/E           F    A
The feeling that I'm loosing her forever
     A#            C             F
And without really entering her world
      A#          C/E              F
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter
      Csus4  C     Fsus4 F
That funny little girl

Chorus:
  F                  A#6             F
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          Am            Gm
I try to capture every minute
A#          F
The feeling in it
                     Csus4  C        F
Slipping through my fingers all the time

 F           A#6               F
Do I really see what's in her mind
              Am                 Gm
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
A#             F
She keeps on growing
                     Csus4  C        F
Slipping through my fingers all the time

  A#         A#m/C#
Sleep in our eyes
         F          Dm
Her and me at the breakfast table
A#       A#m/C#
Barely awake
        F               Am
I let precious time go by
  A#             A#m
Then when she's gone
             F          Dm
There's that odd melancholy feeling
A#              Csus4   C       F
And a sense of guilt I can't deny

      A#              C/E         F       A
What happened to the wonderful adventures
      A#           C                F
The places I had planned for us to go
      A#              C/E             F
Well some of that we did but most we didn't
      Csus4 C           Fsus4 F
And why I  just don't know

Chorus

     A#               C                   F      A
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
     A#               C               F
And save it from the funny tricks of time
  F/A                A#   C F
Slipping through my finge-e-ers

                     Csus4  C        F
Slipping through my fingers all the time

   A#         A#m/C#
Schoolbag in hand
            F          Dm
She leaves home in the early morning
A#          A#m/C#
Waving goodbye
        F               Am
With an absent-minded smile.
