Stay Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now the seats are all empty
Let the roadies take the stage
Pack it up and tear it down
Verse 2
They're the first to come and last to leave
Working for that minimum wage
They'll set it up in another town
Verse 3
Tonight the people were so fine
They waited there in line
And when they got up on their feet they made the show
Verse 4
And that was sweet
But I can hear the sound
Of slamming doors and folding chairs
And that's a sound they'll never know
Verse 5
Now roll them cases out and lift them amps
Haul them trusses down and get'em up them ramps
'Cause when it comes to moving me
You know you guys are the champs
Verse 6
But when that last guitar's been packed away
You know that I still want to play
So just make sure you got it all set to go
Before you come for my piano
Verse 7
But the band's on the bus
And they're waiting to go
We've got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago
Verse 8
Or Detroit, I don't know
We do so many shows in a row
And these towns all look the same
Verse 9
We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
And wander 'round backstage
Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd
And we remember why we came
Verse 10
Now we got country and western on the bus
are and be ,
we got disco in eight tracks and cassettes in stereo
Verse 11
We've got rural scenes & magazines
We've got truckers on the CB
We've got Richard Pryor on the video
Verse 12
We got time to think of the ones we love
While the miles roll away
But the only time that seems too short
Is the time that we get to play
Verse 13
People you've got the power over what we do
You can sit there and wait
Or you can pull us through
Come along, sing the song
You know that you can't go wrong
Verse 14
'Cause when that morning sun comes beating down
You're going to wake up in your town
But we'll be scheduled to appear
A thousand miles away from here
Verse 15
People stay just a little bit longer
We want to play, just a little bit longer
Verse 16
Now the promoter don't mind
And the union don't mind
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind and sing
One more song
Verse 17
Oh won't you stay
Just a little bit longer
Please please please, say you will
Say you will
Verse 18
Oh won't you stay
Just a little bit longer
Oh please please please stay
just a little bit long
Verse 19
I bet promotors don't mind
And the roadies don't mind
If we take a little time
And we leave this all behind
Singing one more song
