I stopped 'cause there was nothing else to do,
And I thought I'd stick around for just a while.
But I warned you, like the west wind, I was only blowin' through,
And no one could ever make me change my style.

'Cause I never sung a stayin' song before.
I've done them blues and good-bye tunes a thousand times or more.
And it seems a little strange
That I ain't headin' for the door,
But I never sung a stayin' song...
I never thought I'd stay this long...
I never sung a stayin' song before.

I usually leave when all the words are said.
But with you there's always more sweet words to say.
And when my mind starts wanderin'up the windin' road ahead,
My feet don't seem to want to walk away.

Last night I heard an old freight whistle blow
While I was sleeping warmly in your bed.
And it told me, boy it's that you was packing up to go,
But I smiled and shook the leaving from my head.

'Cause I never sung a stayin' song before.
I've done them blues and good-bye tunes a thousand times or more.
And it seems a little strange
That I ain't headin' for the door.
But I never sung a stayin' song...
I never thought I'd stay this long...
I never sung a stayin' song before.
