Jimmy Wayne - Stay Gone Lyrics




I've found peace of mind, i'm feeling good again
I'm on the other side, back among the living
Ain't a cloud in the sky
All my tears have been cried
And i can finally say

[Chorus:]
Baby baby stay
Stay right where you are
I like it this way
It's good for my heart
I haven't felt like this
In God knows how long
I know everything's gonna be okay
If you just stay gone

I still love you and i will forever
We can't hide the truth
We know each other better
When we try to make it work
We both end up hurt
It ain't supposed to be that way

[Chorus:]
Baby baby stay
Stay right where you are
I like it this way
It's good for my heart
I haven't felt like this
In God knows how long
I know everything's gonna be okay
If you just stay gone

When we try to make it work
We both end up hurt
Love ain't supposed to be that way

[Chorus:]
So baby baby stay
Stay right where you are
I like it this way
It's good for my heart
I haven't felt like this
In ooh in God knows how long
I know everything's gonna be okay
If you just stay gone

I know everything's gonna be okay
If you just stay gone

  1. tim hall

  2. Melisa Lovely

    Such an Amazing musician and person

  3. Thomas Thurman

    She left me after a 4 year relationship only to come back 6 months later in a 4 month relationship with another guy just to have to go through it all over again now I wish she’d of just stayed gone.

  4. Robert Scott Wilson

    When you can't make it work it's better to stay gone

  5. GODS CHILD Robinson

    When I got married to the man of my dreams, I envisioned forever. I loved him deeper than I thought was ever possible. Now this is my anthem song for him

  6. Susan M

    I wish Jimmy would have another hit soon..great voice and music content .

  7. Rob salinas

    Yeah..sometimes it hurts to stay away..

  8. David Morgan

    Happened upon Jimmy Wayne as I 'Tubed' Daryl Hall @ home. What a revelation...
    I listened and watched his performance and then watched his compelling interview with 'Huckabee' as Jimmy opened the diary of his life thus far.
    How did 'this' happen...The four & perhaps the most important differences between Jimmy's story and mine is J can sing like a bird, has found peace, I am decades older and still searching.
    Having cried a river today I finally sense a sign of hope. An inspiration or what. I'll never forget this day.

  9. Judi Lazaris

    Amazing talent and a great heart and soul 🙏😘🙏

  10. Marilou Tabanera

    A song that proves that what your higher self tells you, is right. For really sometimes, one has to close the fucking door on someone that proves to be a bloody complication on your life. Something that you cannot afford to have in your life...

  11. Jleed989

    Yes sir! Been there

  19. Kory Mickelson

    2019 and living this song.

  20. Nicholas O'Brien

    About 6 months after a breakup is the time to listen to this song, it'll be really cathartic. Don't listen to it right after a breakup, your mindset won't be in the right place because you're not ready to move on and it'll just make you more miserable.

    Amy Allan

    2 months out from my husband throwing away 13 years together. This song give me the peace to. Let him go.

  21. Diego Latorre

    To the three of you, and your traitor friends and family, Be gone, stay gone, or keep crashing against a rock, at your own cost. DO NOT DISTURB ANY MORE.

  22. Takingout thetrash

    I remember when I was in prison i use to enjoy this song so much. it was like my solace just like many other country song that comes on allot on the radio at that time in 2003, and the invasion of Iraq was going on also---- I hate prison lol

  23. Carrie Clark

  39. f l e u r • n o i r e

    This is for too many people that were in my life. —And never come back.

  40. MazzLen

    Five years in a brutal controlling manipulative relationship I finally got the courage to change the locks on my house, kicked that cheating, child abusing mofo to the kerb, and got happy. Years latter I’m happily married to the man of my dreams and relish in the fact my ex is a lonely old man still hopping from woman to woman trying to find someone to own. Ahhh Karma - you bitch... god love ya 😍

  41. Juju Bee

    Stay gone...

  42. Juju Bee

    Stay gone!

  43. Nae Ru

    it's better to be alone than be around toxic abusive people who project and dump ALL their negativity on you. So stay gone and out of my life...is what he's saying.

  44. born free

    I spent my whole life protecting my sister from my parents and the things I had to go through. I know I failed and ill have to live with that for the rest of my life. But the day my sister left for college far away, I felt this weird relief. I thought it was something selfish but this song made me see it a completely different way. Sometimes words in a song, say what words cant. I just wish I could thank him for all his music that helps cover the holes in some people hearts out there.

  45. beautiful love

    I'm reading his book walk to beautiful and it is very sad. I love Jimmy's music.

  46. Joann Turner

    Love this

  47. Sarah Lynn Keeton

  63. Jonie Goodman

    I've found piece of mind
    I'm feeling good again
    I'm on the other side
    Back among the living
    In a cloud in the sky
    All my tears have been cried
    And I can finally say
    Baby, baby, stay, stay right where you are
    I like it this way
    It's good for my heart
    I haven't felt like this
    In God knows how long
    I know everything's going to be OK
    If you just stay gone
    I still love you
    And I will forever
    We can't hide the truth
    We know each other better
    When we try to make it work
    We bother end up hurt
    And it ain't supposed to be that way
    So baby, baby, stay, stay right where you are
    I like it this way
    It's good for my heart
    I haven't felt like this
    In God knows how long
    I know everything's going to be OK
    If you just stay gone
    When we try to make it work
    We both end up hurt
    Love ain't supposed to be that way
    So baby, baby, stay, stay right where you are
    I like it this way
    It's good for my heart
    I haven't felt like this
    In God knows how long
    I know everything's going to be OK
    If you just stay gone
    I know everything's going to be OK
    If you just stay gone

  64. Jacquelinet Velgara

    first time listening to him I love his music and singing babystay gone is the sweetest breakup song I ever heard

  65. Mark Gale

    Would love to meet Jimmy one day. I discovered his music before reading the book. Both have me hooked. Thanks for all you've done Jimmy, Many hours of listening to your music and reading your book (and I NEVER read! Yours is the only book i have read from front to back). It's a great journey and I hope life is treating you good!

  66. Colleen

    Jimmy I still consider you the best male vocalist.  So whether country, pop or Christian come out of hiding soon?!

  67. charleen

    took almost 15 years but kids grown and ya plz stay gone

  68. Jasmine Naquay

    When we try to make it work we both end up hurt 😖 😢

  69. Elisa Thompson

    👦 meets 👧

  70. smm4291

    Still Love Me Some Jimmy Wayne!!

  71. Terri Eliizabeth

    he is talking about his sister whom he adores

  72. Danny - Danyelle Boz - Bosworth

    Yes!!! This song speaks to me. "I still love you. And I will forever." I can relate. Sometimes, things don't work out how we planned, and hoped for them to. But I've still got Faith in God. I know that in His Time He will send me the man He has set for me. I thought it was my ex, but it's apparent that isn't the case. But no animosity. We're still friend's, and I wish him well. But...

    Baby, baby stay
    Stay right where you are
    I like it this way
    It's good for my heart
    I haven't felt like this
    In God Knows how long?
    I know everything's gonna be okay
    If you just stay gone

  73. Cynthia Watkins

    This brother (yes, I said "brother") has pure soul pouring from him.

  74. Cole Chisholm

    Jimmy's book "Walk To Beautiful" is gut wrenching but wonderful. You'll need a full box of tissues.

    Jimmy is not hard core country (which barely exists) but he's a lovely singer and songwriter and his book tore my heart out. I hope he keeps writing also.

    If you want the hard core 70s wake-up passed out-country, then you have have to listen to Gary Stewart. Just don't say I didn't warn you.

    madmom

    Cole Chisholm I'm finishing the book now, and it is heartbreaking. God Bless this man!

    Linda De Pasquale

    Thank you for posting this. I had never heard of Jimmy Wayne, but I came across his book, and your post makes me want to buy it.

    Diane Smiley

    agree finished it yesterday now learning more and more about him. Amazing man.

    Diane Smiley

    I wonder if the dog in the video is the same dog he found/adopted on the walk

    Chris Godwin

    Finished the book today. Loved it. This song was Jimmy’s first single. The music business was a fascinating aspect of the story. Jimmy’s life before - that part was painful. I just loved Walk to Beautiful. What a story this man has. Loved the pictures in the book. Ruby the Foster Dog was real. I got that book too and gave it to my school teacher daughter for her class. Truly Inspirational Jimmy Wayne Barber. Nothing but Love!

  75. Vickie Hawkins

    Heard your story on Focus on the Family today. It brought tears to my eyes. Keep producing books and music
    . Beautiful Life!

    Cole Chisholm

    Vickie I bought the book and read it because of FF show, now I am checking out his music. The book starts off a little slow (he wrote it with a professional writer) but soon enough you get Jimmy's authentic "voice" and it gets going real well. I can't recommend it enough.

    Terri Eliizabeth

    ask Jimmy about good ole BESSEMER CITY NC

    Tina Hosey

    Cole Chisholm I cant wait to buy that book

  76. Desaray Pullen

    try 7 years and two kids!

    Toby Continue

    I hope life is treating you well. I gave up my dreams, life and soul to fulfill my ex fiance dreams when we were together. Her business took off and she forgot about me. I felt like a fool.

    Desaray Pullen

    yep that's how it goes,but I got two amazing ,beautiful boys to love for every day.and im sorry that happened to you. good people get the short end of the stick!

  77. azmonkey mann

    Jimmy I am glad you got to see my home town Sedona is awesome  Like your music.

  78. sensei juan

    great song, sometimes no matter how much you want it to work, you just have to move on

    Cope Hick

    My left almost a year ago and I've been trying like crazy to keep her around but lately this song has a lot of meaning.

    Mark Perrotte

    Aint that the truth, damn...

  79. Nicole Atkeson

    This hits home for me with someone who lives in the same town with me but he comes around n I just wish he would stay gone..

    Yellow Sky

    Nicole Atkeson if you didn't want to see him then you wouldn't, if you didn't want to talk to him then you wouldn't but a part of you still cares for him

  80. joyce davis

    Love all his music!!

  81. Tonya Day

    It was his sister's husband... I knew them personally & very well... Beautiful song... My Mom & his sister were best friends... :)

    Mariana Bracciale

    I'm reading his memoir right now. What a strong man. I only strive to be the kind of artist he has become. What a brave soul.

  82. Ashley Sheeler

    Right song to my ex...

  83. Angel Jackson

    I love him

  84. Paul Knighton

    I first became aware of this artest when the love of my life sent stay gone to my phone as I was listening she was permanently removing herself from my life and after all the tears had been cried I listened to it again and again though I don't know if I will entirely get over her but I most definitely stay gone

  85. DAVID BURNWORTH

    Great song with strong lyrics

  86. Taylor Stickle

    😇😀☺👍🎤💗

  87. Taylor Stickle

    love it Jimmy,...

  88. Kathleen Alferez

    i love you forever and a day!

  89. MMAFighter38

    Jimmy was a handful of new artists from the turn of the century that turned me onto country(Jimmy Wayne,Gary Allan, Andy Griggs, Steve Holy,Clay Davidson, Craig Morgan).

    MMAFighter38

    Marty Martinez- It's a shame he's not still recording.

    Stephanie Swanson

    he is one of my favorites that got me into country as well. his life story is 10 times better than his music. He is still making new music slowly. He recently walked across america for children in orphanages which slowed him down a bit

    MMAFighter38

    @Stephanie Cloe I live in his hometown of Pensacola as well.

    Twanna Haas

    MMAFighter38
    totally an underated artist

    Henry-Joe Murphy

    He must have bad management or the worst A&R person in Nashville working for him... I know Dreamworks Nashville folded... Scott Borchetta left and started "Big Machine" for Taylor Swift, but somewhere Jimmy got lost in the shuffle.. It's too bad. He's and incredible personal testimony of overcoming the worst personal hardship a person could have growing up, and he sings so good and with so much soul... I hope he finds his way back into the mainstream even if its's outside of Nashville and Country Music which is becoming more like Pop + Rap nowadays.

  90. Wade Baker

    This song was on the first CD I ever owned. I remember seeing the CD along with a new CD player/radio under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning 2003

  91. Barb Hansen

    It reminds me of my adult sons that moved to Colorado and Wisconsin. .hurts

  92. Bob Strom

    Love your story and your music. we visited Sedona this past June and loved it. you should record a video on sunrise hot air balloon ride. Red Rock Balloon company was awesome.

  93. thedarkangel

    Love this song. I finnaly did what I should have a long time ago put it up on my facebook for my ex who kept cheating on me then leaving me, then coming back crying asking me to take her back only to repeat the process again.

    Christopher Tingle

    +thedarkangel120407
    hey I wanna ask you a question if a girl cheated on you six times what do you do

    Christopher Tingle

    Who was it i got cheated on by

    thedarkangel

    @Christopher Tingle well I have had that happen to me and i was stupid and took her back for another 6 but the intelligent thing to do would be to leave her and stop messing around with her stop taking her back and just walk away and never let another one cheat on you again

    Sav Mart

    thedarkangel I'm right there with you.

    Bub Stein

    thedarkangel
    Ok

  94. Cory Verhagen

    this song was did cuz his dad was abusive an he wanted his sister to stay gone

    Laurie Kester

    +Cory Verhagen It was his sister's boyfriend who was abusive to her & JW didn't like him. JW barely knew his dad growing up, if at all.

    Laurie Kester

    +Cory Verhagen But he's have a rough life & turned it for the good-I admire his strength. He wrote a biography!

    Becky overthebs

    +Laurie Havens that's really sad

  95. David Puckett

    yes mary it is it's about jimmy's sister's abusive realationship (well,it was about) but it's still interpretational depending on the person (and how it relates to them) so yeah

    David Puckett

    when and why did I write these for?
