E				       B
I've been sitting here staring at the clock on the wall
E				     B
And I've been laying here praying, praying she won't call
             Gbm
It's just another call from home
       A				 E	 B
You’ll get it and be gone and I'll be crying 
E			   B
I'll be begging you baby, beg you not to leave
E				    B
But I'll be left here waiting' with my heart on my sleeve
            Gbm
Oh for the next time we'll be here
       A				     E	    B
Seems like a million years, and I think I'm dying
Gbm			 A
What do I have to do to make you see
Gbm	   A		B
She can't love you like me

Chorus:
               E
Why don't you stay
                A
I'm down on my knees
                        Gbm
I'm so tired of being lonely
                           B
Don't I give you what you need
          Abm         Dbm
When she calls you to go
                              A
There's one thing you should know
                           Gbm      B
We don't have to live this way
                     E        B   Gbm   A   B
Baby, why don't you stay


E			   B
You keep telling me baby there will come a time
E			           B
When you will leave her arms and forever be in mine
       Gbm
Well I don't think that's the truth
       A                                       E         B
And I don't like being used and I'm tired of waiting


Gbm                     A
It's too much pain to have to bare
Gbm        A                B
To love a man you have to share

Chorus:
               E
Why don't you stay
                A
I'm down on my knees
                       Gbm
I'm so tired of being lonely
                            B
Don't I give you what you need
         Abm          Dbm
When she calls you to go
                              A
There's one thing you should know
                           Gbm      B
We don't have to live this way
                     E  
Baby, why don't you stay


          Gbm
I can't take it any longer
        A
But my will is getting stronger
       Gbm                              B
And I think I know just what I have to do 
         Gbm
I can't waste another minute
      A
After all that I've put in it
      Gbm
I've given you my best
              B
Why does she get the best of you
    Gbm
So next time you find
     A                         B
You want to leave her bed for mine


               E
Why don't you stay
                A
I'm up off my knees
                       Gbm 
I'm so tired of being lonely
                          B
You can't give me what I need
          Abm            Dbm
When she begs you not to go
                               A
There's one thing you should know
                          Gbm        B
I don't have to live this way
                    E       B   Gbm   A   B   E
Baby why don't you stay

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
