Stay
Sugarland
(CD "Enjoy The Ride")
Capo 2nd. Fret

D                                    A
I been sittin' here starin' at the clock on the wall
D                                A
And I been layin' here prayin' prayin' she won't call
             Em
It's just another call from home 
            G                      D        A
And you'll get it and be gone and I'll be cryin'

     D                          A
And I'll be beggin' you, baby, beg you not to leave
D                                   A
But I'll be left here waitin' with my heart on my sleeve
             Em
Oh, for the next time we'll be here 
       G                           D         A
Seems like a million years and I think I'm dyin'

Em                   G               D
What do I have to do to make you see
Em          G           A
She can't love you like me

Chorus
               D                    G
Why don't you stay, I'm down on my knees
                       Em                                A
I'm so tired of bein' lonely, don't I give you what you need
                      Bm                                 G
When she calls you to go, there is one thing you should know
                            Em   G     A                    D     A-Em-G-A
We don't have to live this way,      baby, why don't you stay (yeah)

D                            A
You keep tellin' me, baby, there will come a time
D                                  A
When you will leave her arms and forever be in mine
       Em
But I don't think that's the truth 
       G                                       D        A
And I don't like bein' used and I'm tired 'a waitin'

Em                 G
It's too much pain to have to bear
Em         G                A
To love a man you have to share

Chorus
               D                     G
Why don't you stay, I'm down on my knees
                       Em                                A
I'm so tired of bein' lonely, don't I give you what you need
                      Bm                                  G
When she calls you to go, there is one thing you should know
                            Em   G     A                  D
We don't have to live this way,      baby, why don't you stay  

         Em                         G
I can't take it any longer, but my will is gettin' stronger
        D                               A
And I think I know just what I have to do
         Em                         G
I can't waste another minute after all that I put in it
      Em                              A
I've given you my best, why does she get the best of you
    Em                          G                      A
So next time you'll find, you wanna leave her bed for mine

Chorus
                D                  G
Why don't you stay, I'm up off my knees
                       Em                                 A
I'm so tired of bein' lonely, you can't give me what you need
                     Bm                                 G
When she begs you to go, there is one thing you should know
                            Em   G     A                  D    A-Em-G-A-D
We don't have to live this way,      baby, why don't you stay

i'm pretty sure your chorus is off

I went over the song and made some changes. I used a different font in Mocrosoft word to make the chords line up better. I removed two of the Bm chords in the chorus. My version is alittle different, but this is the way I hear the song.

I guess it's okay to tab a song the way you like play it, but for anyone trying to learn the song as it was recorded, don't play the first few Bm chords shown in the chorus. The first time it's played is in the line "begs you not to go", then it's a walk down from Bm to A to G. Thanks for the tab Ray.

RT: more than the chorus is off. I know Kristian Bush can do some unique stuff with a guitar, but this song was kept pretty simple. The old tab that got lost was dead on ... too bad it's gone. Many of your chords don't line up, and the Bm you've added throughout just doesn't go well with the song. Thanks for the effort, but if there's anyone out there trying to use this to learn the song, it's not going to do them any good. I'll see if I have the old version on my hard drive. If I do, I'll repost it.
