Charted: 4 26
  • I'll send away all my false pride
    And I'll forsake all of my life
    Yes I'll be as true as true can be
    If you'll come and stay with me.

    Lovers of the past I'll leave behind
    There'll never be another on my mind
    I'll do all I can so you'll feel free
    If you come and stay with me

    The promises I made most faithfully
    I'll keep them still should you decide to leave
    I'll try and see that you have all you need
    If you'll come and stay with me

    We'll live a life no one has ever known
    But I know you're thinking that I'm hardly grown
    I'll do all I can so you'll feel free
    If you'll come and stay with me.

    But oh thank God at last and finally
    I could see you're gonna stay with me
