I started writing this song earlier this week, and I finished it after driving home from wrestling practice the other day. On the ride home, me and a few others on the team witnessed a guy over-correct and flip his car. We all pulled over and made sure he was okay. We called an ambulance, and luckily he was fine. If he had not been wearing his seat belt, he might have died. Lyrics and original composition by Blane Sage. Slippin’ and Slidin’ Capo: I Chords relative to the capo. [Verse] G C G He started the engine and pulled out the drive. G D G The time on his wrist read six thirty five. G C G He was five minutes late so he gave it some gas. G D G He didn’t know this ride was his last. [Verse] G C G On down the road, it started to pour. G D G But he kept his pedal pressed to the floor. G C G His phone started ringing, went to answer the call. G D G The stop sign to him meant nothing at all. [Verse] G C G He saw the car, and he tried to stop. G D G Slippin’ and slidin’, his steering wheel locked. G C G Hit the other driver at a steady fifty five. G D G No one involved made it out alive. [Verse] G C G The news the next morning blamed it on the rain. G D G But the truth died that night, ain’t it a shame. G C G His friends tried to move past it, but they had no luck. G D G Forgetting their buddy who never showed up.
