Bonnie Raitt - Stayed Too Long at the Fair Songtext

Jesus cried, wept and died
I guess He went up to heaven

I've been downtown such a long, long time
I'll never make it home by seven
Won't you come & take me home
I've been too long at the fair
And, Lord, I just can't stand it anymore

Well I went down to Chason's
Walked 'til my feet got sore
I never knew what laughin' was
'Til you walked out the door
Won't you come and take me home
I've been too long at the fair
And, Lord, I just can't stand it anymore

Well, you can give my soul to Abraham
Give my soul to Saul
Give my bones to Canada
My feet they don't hurt at all

I don't know who made the highway
I guess that's just my pride
But I have heard the Prince of Darkness
On his charger ride

The silver blade is gleamin'
The scales are in his hands
I swear another night is fallin',
Don't you lose another man
Won't you come and take me home
I've been too long at the fair
And, Lord, I just can't stand it anymore
