    Now the seats are all empty
    Let the roadies take the stage
    Pack it up and tear it down
    They're the first to come and the last to leave
    Working for that minimum wage
    They'll set it up in another town
    Tonight the people were so fine
    They waited there in line
    And when they got up on their feet,
    They made the show, and that was sweet,
    But I can hear the sound of slamming doors and folding chairs
    and that's a sound they'll never know

    Now roll them cases and lift amps
    and haul them truses up and get'um up them ramps
    'Cause when it comes to moving me,
    you know you guys are the champs
    but when that last guitar's been packed away,
    you know that I still want to play.
    So just make sure you got it all set to go
    before you come for my piano

    But the band's on the bus,
    and they're waiting to go.
    We gotta drive all night
    And do the show in Chicago... or Detroit.
    I don't know, we do so many shows in a row.
    And these towns all look the same.
    we just pass the time in the hotel rooms
    and wander around backstage.
    Till those lights come up, and we hear that crowd,
    and we remember why we came.

    Now we got country and western on the bus,
    R & B, we got disco in 8-tracks and casettes in stereo
    We've got rural scenes and magazines
    And we've got truckers on CB
    We got Richard Pryor on the video
    We've got time to think of the ones we love
    While the miles roll away
    but the only time that seems too short is the time that we get to play
    People you've got the power over what we do
    You can sit there and wait
    or you can pull us through.
    Come along, sing this song
    You know that you can't go wrong
    'Cause when that mornin' sun comes beating down
    you're gonna wake up in your town
    But we'll be scheduled to appear
    a thousand miles away from here

    People stay just a little bit longer
    We want to play -- just a little bit longer
    Now the promoter don't mind
    And the union don't mind
    If we take a little time
    And we leave it all behind and sing
    One more song
    Oh won’t you stay just a little bit longer
    Please, please, please say you will
    Say you will

    Oh won’t you stay just a little bit longer
    Oh please, please stay just a little bit more

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