SANTA CAN'T STAY (Dwight Yoakam)
performed by Dwight Yoakam on COME ON CHRISTMAS (1997)


A
Cold tears fall from his eyes
                                      E
As he turns into the night and walks away

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

Little Bobby stares down
                                 D
At the plate where cookies still lay
    A 
And tries to understand
    E                      A
Why momma said Santa can't stay



D          E           A
Momma said Santa can't stay
         D             E           A
Said she told him that twice yesterday
       D             E
Then a car just like Dad's
A                    F#m
Pulled out and drove away
      D                         E
After momma said Santa couldn't stay


E
Santa can't stay

A
They both heard him coming
                                      E
Saw Mom run down the hall and holler wait

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

He threw a present really hard
                                    D
That almost hit Mom's new boyfriend Ray

And yelled ho-ho lucky for you she's here
     E                    A
And said that Santa can't stay


D          E            A
Momma said Santa can't stay
         D             E           A
Said she told him that twice yesterday
       D             E
Then a car just like Dad's
       A             F#m
Pulled out and drove away
      D                          E
After momma said Santa couldn't stay


D           E          A
Momma said Santa can't stay
         D                   E           A
Said she warned him about it twice yesterday
D                    E
Then a car just like Dad's
A                    F#m
Pulled out and drove away
      D                         E
After momma said Santa couldn't stay


    D          E           A
Hey momma said Santa can't stay
        D                           E           A
Said he might just have to beat the crap out of Ray
       D             E
Then a car just like Dad's
       A             F#m
Peeled out and drove away man
      D                           E
After momma yelled Santa couldn't stay
D          E           A
Momma said Santa can't stay
