Intro (yes, only three bars!):  I / / / | V / / / |  IV / / / |

Verse: 16 bars alternating the I and the IV
What would I give for just a few moments
What would I give just to have you near
Tell me you would try to slip away somehow
Oh I need you darling I want to see you right now
|vi / / / | V(or III) / / / | IV / / / | V(stop) / / / |
Can you slip away, slip away
Slip away, oh I need you so.

Two bars of the verse, with hemiola over the 3rd and 4th beats of last bar of chorus, the notes being
1, 3, 5,
and landing on the 6 for the bridge:
| vi |  V  | IV  | I            |
| vi |  V  | IV  | V(stop) |
Love, oh love, how sweet it is
When you steal love,
Let me tell you how sweet it is... [hits on the 3rd and 4th beats]

Verse 2
Now I know it's wrong,
The things I ask you to do
But please believe me darling
I don't mean to hurt you
But can you slip away
Without him knowin you're gone
Baby, we could meet somewhere,
Somewhere we both are not known
Can you slip away, slip away,
Slip away-ay-ay-ay...[stop] I need you so

Vamp out...
Oh can you slip away baby
I'd like to see you right now darling
Can you slip away baby
Cause I got to, got to see you
I feel a deep burning inside
Oh I wish you could slip away...
