Santa Can't Stay (CRD)  Dwight Yoakam

[A]Cold tears fall from his eyes
As he turns into the night and walks a[E]way

Lucille runs outside
Just to see if there might be a [A]sleigh

Little Bobby stares down
At the plate where cookies still [D]lay
And [A]tries to understand
Why [E]momma said Santa can't [A]stay



[D]Momma said [E]Santa can't [A]stay
Said she [D]told him that [E]twice yester[A]day
Then a [D]car just like [E]Dad's
[A]Pulled out and drove [F#m]away
After [D]momma said Santa couldn't [E]stay


[E]Santa can't stay


|A |A |E |E |B |E |E |


[A]They both heard him coming
Saw Mom run down the hall and holler w[E]ait

Doug you're drunk don't come inside
I'm not joking I've had all this I can [A]take

He threw a present really hard
That almost hit Mom's new boyfriend [D]Ray

And yelled ho-ho lucky for you she's here
And s[E]aid that Santa can't [A]stay


[D]Momma said [E]Santa can't s[A]tay
Said she [D]told him that [E]twice yester[A]day
Then a [D]car just like [E]Dad's
Pulled [A]out and drove [F#m]away
After [D]momma said Santa couldn't s[E]tay


[D]Momma said S[E]anta can't [A]stay
Said she [D]warned him about it [E]twice yester[A]day
[D]Then a car just like [E]Dad's
[A]Pulled out and drove [F#m]away
After [D]momma said Santa couldn't [E]stay


Hey [D]momma said [E]Santa can't [A]stay
Said he [D]might just have to beat the [E]crap out of [A]Ray
Then a [D]car just like [E]Dad's
Peeled [A]out and drove [F#m]away man
After [D]momma yelled Santa couldn't [E]stay
[D]Momma said [E]Santa can't [A]stay
