Slip Slidin' Away by Paul Simon
Album: Greatest Hits, Etc.Released: 1977Charted:
Backup vocals are by Country group The Oak Ridge Boys.
This was one of 2 new songs released on Simon's Greatest Hits, Etc. album. It was released as a single backed with the other new song "Stranded in a Limousine."
The fourth verse was only added because the record company wanted it that way. Simon originally meant the song to be a trilogy about husband, wife, and family. (thanks, Jesse - Roanoke, VA, for above 2)
