Stay All Night (Stay A Little Longer)

Lyrics: Bob Wills, Tommy Duncan
Music: Bob Wills, Tommy Duncan

Sung by Bob Weir with Margo Price and Billy Strings at the 2023 concert for Willie Nelson's 90th birthday.

Can't go home if you're going by the mill
'Cause the bridge's washed out at the bottom of the hill
Big Creek's up and Little Creek's level
Plow my corn with a double shovel

Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

Sitting in the window singing to my love
Slop bucket fell from the window above
Mule and the grasshopper eating ice cream
Mule got sick so they laid him on the green


Well you ought to see my blue eyed Sally
She lives away down on Shinbone Alley
The number on the gate, number on the door
The next house over is a grocery store

Don't see why you can't stay a little longer
