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
