Stay

Sugarland

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

CHORUS:
 D
Why don't you stay
 G
I'm down on my knees
 Em
I'm so tired of being lonely
 A
Don't I give you what you need
 F#mBm
When she calls you to go
 G
There's one thing you should know
 EmA
We don't have to live this way     
 DAEmGA
Baby, why don't you stay                   

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

 EmG
 It's too much pain to have to bare
 EmGA
 To love a man you have to share

CHORUS
 D
Why don't you stay
 G
                                    
I'm down on my knees
 Em
I'm so tired of being lonely
 A
Don't I give you what you need
 F#mBm
When she calls you to go
 G
There's one thing you should know
 EmA
We don't have to live this way     
 D
Baby, why don't you stay

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

 D
Why don't you stay
 G
I'm up off my knees
 Em
I'm so tired of being lonely
 A
You can't give me what I need
 F#mBm
When she begs you not to go
 G
There's one thing you should know
 EmA
I don't have to live this way       
 DAEmGAD
Baby why don't you stay

Thanks for the chords!! However I don't believe this is in the same key as the original.  I believe that it is in the key of E.  Put these chords do work, just a lower key.  Thanks again.

I noticed he plays this song with a capo on the 2nd fret.  Does that change the notes?
