Vietnam was '66
Two best friends take a bad hit
And never saw it come
But it's all there
One was a rich boy, a doctors son
The other the father of a girl age one
Never had the change to hold his daughters hand

New york flat in '76
Two girlfriends shoot a bad fix
Never woke up saw heaven before it saw them
One was a daughter of a prominent man
The other the mother of a girl age ten
Who walked in and saw mama sleeping in gods hands
And she cried

Chorus
Stay with me
Mama won't you stay here with me
You promised you would never leave
Stay with me
Oh won't you stay here with me
Mama, hold my had and stay with me

Years go by, the girl's 23
Had a rough go, but she's on her feet
The man so rough
A few good years, a wedding ring
Wasn't enough to fulfill his dreams
He came home from work one day and said I'm leaving you
She cried...

Chorus
Stay with me, honey
Won't you stay right here with me
You promised you would never leave
Stay with me, whoa whoa
Stay right here with me
Won't you hold my hand stay with me

Emergency room, number four
A woman cried out as the child is born
She stares into eyes and says
My life's had it's ups and downs
But for yours I will be around
I will always be around
And she cried

Chorus
Stay with me, whoa whoa
Won't you stay right here with me
I promise I will never leave
Stay with me, oh
Won't you stay right here with me
Child, you hold my had stay with me
Child, you hold my hand stay with me.
