ABBA - Slipping Through My Fingers Chords

[Verse 1]

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


[Pre-Chorus]

    G                   A/C#        D       F#
The feeling that I'm loosing her forever 
G                    A            D    D/F#
And without really entering her world
G                                   D           Asus4        Dsus4   D
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter, that funny little girl 


[Chorus]

                      G             D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          F#m           Em
I try to capture every minute
     G       D
The feeling in it
                     Asus4  A       D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
             G                D
Do I really see what's in her mind
            F#m                 Em
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
      G        D
She keeps on growing
                      Asus4  A      D
Slipping through my fingers all the time


[Verse 2]

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


[Pre-Chorus]

        G             A/C#       D       F#
What happened to the wonderful adventures
        G        A                 D  D/F#
The places I had planned for us to go (slipping through my fingers all the time)
G                    A/C#
Well some of that we did
             D
But most we didn't
   Asus4             Dsus4   D
And why I just don't know


[Chorus]

                      G             D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          F#m           Em
I try to capture every minute
     G       D
The feeling in it
                     Asus4  A       D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
             G                D
Do I really see what's in her mind
            F#m                 Em
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
      G        D
She keeps on growing
                      Asus4  A      D
Slipping through my fingers all the time



[Verse]

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


[Solo]

G D F#m Em G D Asus4 A D

G D F#m Em G D                    Asus4           D
              Slipping through my fingers all the time


[Outro]

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