Santa Can't Stay (CRD)

Dwight Yoakam

 A
 Cold tears fall from his eyes
 E
As he turns into the night and walks away

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

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

 DEA
 Momma said Santa can't stay
 DEA
Said she told him that twice yesterday
 DE
Then a car just like Dad's
 AF#m
 Pulled out and drove away
 DE
After momma said Santa couldn't stay

 E
 Santa can't stay

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

 A
 They both heard him coming
 E
Saw Mom run down the hall and holler wait

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

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

And yelled ho-ho lucky for you she's here
 EA
And said that Santa can't stay

 DEA
 Momma said Santa can't stay
 DEA
Said she told him that twice yesterday
 DE
Then a car just like Dad's
 AF#m
Pulled out and drove away
 DE
After momma said Santa couldn't stay

 DEA
 Momma said Santa can't stay
 DEA
Said she warned him about it twice yesterday
 DE
 Then a car just like Dad's
 AF#m
 Pulled out and drove away
 DE
After momma said Santa couldn't stay

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