STAY - Jessica Harp

Tabbed by: Krista
Tuning: Capo on 2nd
[C] [C/F] [G] [F] [Am] [E]  

What's [C]keeping me, what's keeping me
God [C/F]tell me what is keeping me
I [C]thought I saw Resolution yester[G]day
But he just [F]smiled and waved
What's [C]holding me, what's holding me
Dear [C/F]God, what is holding me
I [C]thought I knew what laid in store
I didn't [G]count on [F]locked up doors
And all[G] I know is something happened
The [F]wind changed di[C]rections
The [Am]lovers cried and the birds flew a[G]way
Why did I[F] st[E]ay, why did I[Am] st[G]ay[F]
What [C]tied me up, what tied me up
Like [C/F]chewing gum my feet got stuck
I'm [C]sitting in this rusty room
All [G]prepared to [F]face my doom
You [C]laughed at me, you laughed at me
Said that [C/F]kind of life don't come for free
I [C]smiled, said no, and not much does
But [G]why are my [F]feet still stuck
And[G] again signs all pointed to
Follow[F]ing my simple [C]truth
The [Am]lovers cried and more birds flew a[G]way
Why did I[F] st[E]ay, why did I[Am] st[G]ay[F]
Why did I[F] st[E]ay, why did I[Am] st[G]ay[F]
[C] [C/F] [C] [C/F]  
[G] I can't be a walking rest[F]riction any[C]more
[G] I can't deny what [F]fate's got in [C]store
[Am] Why do I stay[E], why do I stay
[Am] Please tell me I don't h[G]ave to stay
[C]Friend told me I'll lend you some change
Go [C/F]find out who's calling your name
[C]Leave your goodbyes with me tonight
Don't [G]mind what's wrong just go[F] set it right
Last [C]boarding call to LA
Take your [C/F]tickets here, right this way
Don't [C]care if I become a star
I just [G]wanna play [F]my guitar
And[G] something's happening
The [F]wind changed di[C]rections
The [Am]lovers smiled and the last birds flew a[G]way
I didn't[F] st[E]ay, I didn't[Am] st[G]ay
I didn't[F] st[E]ay, I didn't[Am] st[G]ay
I flew away[C] [C/F]
Don't[C] stay[G]
[F]Fly a[C]way
