The Sunny Cowgirls – Stay lyrics

She was a drifter, loved to move around
Meeting new people from these old towns
Travelling for years yet she's only 22
Working on the land the only thing she knew

Met a boy, lived out need Boggabri
At the local pub after work one Friday night
And he stole her heart with just one kiss
She'd never felt a love like this
The only thing agains her was the time

And he said "Stay, I'll be lost without your smile"
And a tear drop came into her eye,
She whispered to him her goodbye
"I'll see you round, maybe give you a call. But I'll never stay."

Packed up and left, determined to move on
She headed west, found work and a new home
But he crossed her mind in bed at night
She wondered what it would be like
To settle down and plant roots of her own

What if I'd stayed? Would I be lost in my own world?
And a tear drop came into her eye,
She suddenly just realised
Is it too late to turn around? I should have stayed...

Well it takes time to learn the ropes of life
And she thought she knew it all
And she was thinking as she pulled into his drive
Well it was the worth the ride cause now I know for sure...

"I'm here to stay, cause I was lost without your smile
And a tear drop came into her eye
She whispered to him her goodnight
"I'll see you in the morning after all. I'll always stay..."
