Verse 1
E                                     B
I've been sittin’ here starin’ at the clock on the wall
E                                  B
And I've been layin’ here prayin’, prayin’ she won't call
          F#m
It's just another call from home
A                                     E       B
You’ll get it and be gone and I'll be cryin’
E                         B
I'll be beggin’ you baby, beg you not to leave
E                                     B
But I'll be left here waitin’ with my heart on my sleeve
           F#m
Oh for the next time we'll be here
      A                                     E      B  Bsus
Seems like a million years, and I think I'm dyin’
F#m                     A
What do I have to do to make you see
F#m       A             B
She can't love you like me

Chorus
              E
Why don't you stay
               A
I'm down on my knees
                G#m   F#m
I'm so tired of bein’ lonely
                          B
Don't I give you what you need
         [ch]G#/C[/ch]         C#m
When she calls you to go
                  B          A
There's one thing you should know
                 G#m       F#m  G#m  A
We don't have to live this way
      B             E     B  Bsus  F#m  A  B
Baby, why don't you stay

Verse 2
E                        B                   Bsus
You keep tellin’ me baby there will come a time
E                                B
When you will leave her arms and forever be in mine

       F#m                           G#m
Well I don't think that's the truth
      A                                      E        B  Bsus
And I don't like bein’ used and I'm tired of waitin’
F#m                   A
It's too much pain to have to bear
F#m       A               B
To love a man you have to share

Chorus
              E
Why don't you stay
               A
I'm down on my knees
                G#m   F#m
I'm so tired of being lonely
                          B
Don't I give you what you need
         [ch]G#m/C[/ch]        C#m
When she calls you to go
                      B      A
There's one thing you should know
                 G#m       F#m  G#m  A
We don't have to live this way
      B             E  
Baby, why don't you stay

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

Chorus
              E
Why don't you stay
              A
I'm up off my knees
                G#m   F#m 
I'm so tired of bein’ lonely
                         B
You can't give me what I need
         [ch]G#m/C[/ch]           C#m
When she begs you not to go
                      B      A
There's one thing you should know
                     G#m  F#m  G#m  A
I don't have to live this way
     B             E     Bsus  F#m  A  B  Bsus  E
Baby why don't you stay


This is my interpretation/version of the song and is what I hear.
Since U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have
included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to
experiment with your own chord voicings.
