    Lyrics

    Well, I no longer can recall
    F C
    All the times you made me crawl
    (F) G G7
    All the times you made me hang my head and cry
    C
    But still the teardrops fall
    F C
    And lord what's worst of all
    G F C
    I just ain't got the nerve to say goodbye

    F
    I'm waitin' for the day
    C
    When I can hide my love away
    (F) G G7
    And stand up like a man so tall and free
    F
    Then you'll be the one to say
    C C/b Am
    Oh darlin', can't you stay
    G F C
    I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

    Oh girl, I don't know why
    You always have to try
    To hurt me to make me feel ashamed
    Oh, but someday by and by
    You're gonna be the one to cry
    And walk the floor and sadly call my name

    Oh, I'm waitin' for the day
    When I can hide my love away
    And stand up like a man so tall and free
    Then you'll be the one to say
    Oh darlin', can't you stay
    I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

    Oh, but it looks like until then
    I'll throw pride to the wind
    And try to make believe that I don't know
    That a day is comin' when
    You won't do me wrong again
    And I will be the one to turn and go

    I'm waitin' for the day
    When I can hide my love away
    And stand up like a man so tall and free
    Then you'll be the one to say
    Oh darlin', can't you stay
    I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me
