When I was a young man
I lived inside the law
I walked the straight and narrow
I didn’t stray at all
Then I met this minstrel the only thing he could say
Is when you’re feeling low and blue all ya gotta do is slip away

Chorus:
Slip away, Slip away, Slip away, Slip away
Slip Away, slip away
When you’re feeling low and blue
All ya gotta do is slip away.

Slip away in morning, slip away at night
The mistral had this motto, it was “Slip away, don’t fight”
Slip away for coffee, slip away for tea
Slip away by yourself
Or with a little company but…

Repeat chorus


Now that I’m a grown man
I’ve traveled this world around
I slipped away to the city, slipped away to the town
But I never forgot that minstrel and what he had to say
It was when you’re feeling low and blue
All ya gotta do is slip away

Repeat chorus
