The Song Is Still Slipping Away

Song Author Shooter Jennings Submitted by: Anonymous
[E]With a bag, a [B7]bottle and th[A]is old guita[E]r  
[E]In the back of some[B7] bus on the ro[A]ad [E]    
[E]I'm living the h[B7]igh life with nothi[A]ng to sho[E]w  
[E]But a love that's [B7]letting me g[E]o  

Your hero[A]es turn o[B7]ut to be assh[E]oles
And the li[A]ght in the tu[E]nnel that you're chasing is a [B7]train
The singe[A]r's in [B7]key the g[E]uitars in tu[A]ne  
But the so[E]ng is still s[B7]lipping aw[E]ay  

[E]The lights of the c[B7]ity paint a s[A]tage in the ni[E]ght  
[E]For two hearts breaking in t[B7]ime   
[E]Wild horses are cu[B7]rsed with their f[A]reedom in [E]mind
[E]And a hunger left [B7]burning in[E]side

Yo[A]ur heroes turn [B7]out to be ass[E]holes
And the l[A]ight in the tu[E]nnel that you're chasing is a t[B7]rain   
The singe[A]r's in [B7]key the [E]guitars in t[A]une  
But the [E]song is still s[B7]lipping aw[E]ay  

And [A]slowly no[B7]thing else m[E]atters
As the [A]white and the [E]black become g[B7]rey   

With a bag, a bottle and this old guitar
In the back of some bus on the road
I'm living the high life with nothing to show
But a love that's letting me go

Your heroes turn out to be assholes
And the light in the tunnel that you're chasing is a train
The singer's in key the guitars in tune
But the song is still slipping away

The lights of the city paint a stage in the night
For two hearts breaking in time
Wild horses are cursed with their freedom in mind
And a hunger left burning inside

Your heroes turn out to be assholes
And the light in the tunnel that you're chasing is a train
The singer's in key the guitars in tune
But the song is still slipping away

And slowly nothing else matters
As the white and the black become grey
