Santa Can't Stay(Chords)

Dwight Yoakam

Key: G
G 
A cold tear fall from his eyes 
                                     D7 
As he turns into the night and walks away 

Lucille runs outside 
                                G 
Just to see if there might be a sleigh 

Little Bobby he stares down 
                   G7            C 
At the plate where cookies still lay 
    G 
And tries to understand 
D7                         G 
Why momma said Santa can't stay 

C          D7          G 
Momma said Santa can't stay 
         C        D7               G 
Said she told him that twice yesterday 
       C             D7    G                    Em 
Then a car just like dad's pulled out and drove away 
      C                         D7 
After momma said Santa couldn't stay 

G 
They both heard him coming 
                                     D7 
Saw mom run down the hall and holler wait 

Doug you're drunk don't come inside 
                                       G 
I'm not joking I've had all this I can take 

He threw a present really hard 
                          G7        C 
That almost hit mom's new boyfriend Ray 
           G 
And yelled ho-ho lucky for you she's here 
    D7                    G 
And said that Santa can't stay 

C          D7          G 
Momma said Santa can't stay 
         C        D7               G 
Said she told him that twice yesterday 
       C             D7    G                    Em 
Then a car just like dad's pulled out and drove away 
      C                         D7

      C                         D7
