Words and music by Maurice Williams

G  Bm  C  Em / C  D  G

         G             Bm
Now the seats are all empty
         C                Em
Let the roadies take the stage
         C      D       G
Pack it up and tear it down
  G                            Bm
They're the first to come and last to leave
         C                Em
Working for that minimum wage
                C      D      G
They'll set it up in another town
 G            Em            B
Tonight the people were so fine
 C                    A7
They waited there in line

               G               Em                 C
And when they got up on their feet they made the show
               G
And that was sweet ...
           Bm
But I can hear the sound
             C          D       Em
Of slamming doors and folding chairs
              C             D     G
And that's a sound they'll never know

G                            C
Now roll them cases out and lift them amps
 G                           C
Haul them trusses down and get'em up them ramps
 G                       Bm
Cause when it comes to moving me
     C             D
You guys are the champs
               G                   Bm
But when that last guitar's been packed away
          C                    Em
You know that I still want to play
              C
So just make sure you got it all set to go
            D           G
Before you come for my piano

(instrumental)  Bm  C  Em/ C  D  G

G        Em            B
But the band's on the bus
C                      A7
And they're waiting to go
               G              Em                C
We've got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago
     G               Bm
Or Detroit, I don't know
          C              Em
We do so many shows in a row
           C         D        G
And these towns all look the same
G                            Bm
We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
     C             Em
And wander 'round backstage
             C
Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd
         D              G
And we remember why we came

Bm  C  Em / C  D  G

            G                              Em
Now we got country and western on the bus, R&B
         C                                     G
We got disco on eight tracks and cassettes in stereo
G                          Bm
We got rural scenes and magazines
             C         Em
And we got truckers on CB
             C                    D     G
And we got Richard Pryor on the video

G                            Bm
We got time to think of the ones we love
           C          Em
While the miles roll away
         C
But the only time that seems too short
        D
Is the time that we get to play

        G                          C
People you've got the power over what we do
         G
You can sit there and wait
            C
Or you can pull us through
      G               Bm
Come along, sing the song
     C                 D
You know you can't go wrong

                  G                Bm
Cause when that morning sun comes beating down
                 C               Em
You're going to wake up in your town
     C
But we'll be scheduled to appear
            D
A thousand miles away from here

G       Em    C      D         G      Em  C  D
People stay just a little bit longer
C          Em       C       D         G       Em  C  D
We want to play -- just a little bit longer
          G             Em    C  D
Now the promoter don't mind
         G           Em   C  D
And the union don't mind
        G            Em
If we take a little time
        C             D         G
And we leave it all behind and sing
          Em
One more song--
               G  Em   C       D         G      Em  C  D
Oh, won't you stay~~~ just a little bit longer
G                Em      D       G
Please, please, please, say you will
Em
Say you will

              G    Em
Oh wonít you stay~~~~~
 C       D          G     Em  C  D
Just a little bit longer
              G  Em
Oh wonít you stay~~~~
 C       D          G       Em  C  D
Just a little bit longer
          G             Em   C  D
And the promoter donít mind
          G             Em    C  D
And the roadies donít mind
       G             Em
If we take a little time
         C                      D
And we leave it all behind and sing
G         Em
One more song
