Stay a Little Longer

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June Carter:
I got a gal named blue-eyed Sally
She lives down in Shinbone Alley
The number’s on the gate and the number’s on the door
And the next house over is the grocery store

June and Helen:
Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
I don’t see why you don’t stay a little longer

June:
I sat in the window singing to my loved one
A slop bucket fell from the window above
A mule and a grasshopper eating ice cream
The mule got sick and they laid him on a beam

June and Helen:
Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
I don’t see why you don’t stay a little longer

June:
Now you can’t go home if you’re going by the mill
For the bridge washed out at the bottom of the hill
The big creek’s up and the big creek’s level
I plow my corn with a double shovel

June and Helen:
Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
I don’t see why you don’t stay a little longer

June:
Well, I grabbed a gal and pat her on the head
If you don’t like biscuit, eat cornbread
The girls up big creek about half grown
They jump on a man like a dog on a bone

June and Helen:
Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
I don’t see why you don’t stay a little longer
