The Load Out + Stay

The Load Out + Stay (1977) by Jackson Browne



Now the seats are all empty
They'll set it up in another town
And when they got up on their feet they made the show
And that was sweet ...
But I can hear the sound

Cause when it comes to moving me
You guys are the champs
But when that last guitar's been packed away
You know that I still want to play

[Steel Guitar Solo: David Lindley]

But the band's on the bus
And they're waiting to go
And these towns all look the same
We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
And wander 'round backstage
And we remember why we came

Now we got country and western on the bus, R&B
We got rural scenes and magazines

We got time to think of the ones we love
While the miles roll away

You can sit there and wait
You know you can't go wrong
Cause when that morning sun comes beating down

We want to play -- just a little bit longer
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind and sing

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer

And the promoter don’t mind
And the roadies don’t mind
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind and sing
One more song
