Wish I Could Stay Acoustic
Laleh played a very slow version of this song in concert a while ago. I liked it alot and these chords are 
chosen with that slow version in mind. So it might not fit perfectly with the original song, just F.Y.I. 
But It’s your life so play it like you want….=)
EDIT: After watching the concert on TV I noticed she played the song with a capo on 2nd and start with a C
(Transpose down 2 notes) It's actually an easier way of playing it. Also, she mixes up the parts of the song
a bit different than described below (which has the structure of the original song).

A6/C#     = x42252 
D#dim7    = xx1212


[Verse 1]
D    A6/C#     Bm
take me to the lake side
Em                A
place me among the trees that hide
D                  G
from the dust and from the old
C        F#    Bm
by the river and by the oak

D    A6/C#     Bm
will there be a bowl of soap
Em                    A
like the songs we were told
D             G
will there be a boat
C        F#        Bm
that will take me to the other side


[Pre-Chorus]
              D        A    Bm
because I'm on my way to somewhere
      D        A    Bm
I'm on my way to something
      D        A          G
but I'll meet you when you get there


[Chorus]
                     Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                    Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                    Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                    Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                  Em    D A D A  G
I wish could stay


[Verse 2]
D    A6/C#     Bm
sunday call and after all
Em                A
a prayer would only make me blush
D                  G
but thanks for letting us
C        F#        Bm    A6/C#    D   D#dim7
who do I thank for another day?
E                 A
a prayer would only make me blush
D                  G
but thanks for letting us
C        F#        Bm
who do I thank for another day?


[Pre-Chorus]
       D        A    Bm
because I'm on my way to somewhere
      D        A    Bm
I'm on my way to something
      D        A           G
but I'll meet you when you get there


[Chorus]
                     Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                    Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                    Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                    Em    D A D A 
I wish could stay my friend
G                  Em    D A D A
I wish could stay
G                  Em    D A D A  G
I wish could stay


[Outro]
Em    D A D A  G
Em    D A D A  G
