Here are the chords over the words to give you a starting point, I have the tabbed stuff 
the bottom.


--Intro is same chords as verse--
(See tabbed part for a more accurate interpretation)

            G              G
Now the seats are all empty
(D)     C                     Em
Let the roadies take the stage
             C              D  G
Pack it up and tear it down
             G                    Bm7
They're the first to come and the last to leave
(D)     C                  Em
Working for that minimum wage
               C             D  G  C  G  -
They'll set it up in another town

Em                         Adim7              C        A#dim7(4th Inversion)
Tonight the people were so fine, they waited there in line
              G                Em        D            C
And when they got up on their feet, they made the show
             G                         Bm7*
And that was sweet, but I can hear the sound
     (D)     C        Em
Of slamming doors and folding chairs
             C             D         G  C  G  D
And that's a sound they'll never know


G                            C
Now, roll them cases out and lift them amps
G                            C
Haul them trusses down and get 'em up them ramps
G                       Bm7*
'Cause when it comes to moving me
C                          D
You know you guys are the champs
              G                Bm7*
But when that last guitar's been packed away
              C               Em
You know that I still want to play
             C
So just make sure you've got it all set to go
           D
Before you come for my piano


----------------------------
Solo is same as intro chords
----------------------------


Em                    Adim7
But the band's on the bus
    C                  A#dim7
And they're waiting to go
             G              Em         D      C
We've got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago
   G                 G
Or Detroit, I don't know
(D)      C                Em
We do so many shows in a row
          C         D            G
And these towns all look the same
        G                    Bm7*
We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
    C                 Em
And wander 'round backstage
           C
Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd
       D
And we remember why we came


----------------------------
Solo is same as intro chords
----------------------------


           G                               Em
Now we got country and western on the bus, R & B
        C                                           G D
We got disco on eight tracks and cassettes in stereo
          G                 Bm7*
We've got rural scenes and magazines
       Em
We got truckers on CB
       C                   D      G D
We got Richard Pryor on the video
           G                    Bm7*
And we got time to think of the ones we love
          Em
While the miles roll away
        C
But the only time that seems too short
       D
Is the time that we get to play

       G                         C
People you've got the power over what we do
       G                              C
You can sit there and wait or you can pull us through
     G               Bm7*
Come along, sing the song
     C                      D
You know that you can't go wrong
                  G                G
'Cause when that morning sun comes beating down
                Em
You're going to wake up in your town
     C
But we'll be scheduled to appear
   D
A thousand miles away from here

---Segue to Stay---


2/4  |G|Em|C|D|   over and over till the Em and hold.

People, stay just a little bit longer
We wanna play just a little bit longer
If the promoter don't mind and the union don't mind
We can take a little time and we'll leave this all behind
Singin' one more song
Oh, won't you stay just a little bit longer
Please, please, please, say you will, say you will

Oh, won't you stay just a little bit longer
Oh, please, please stay just a little bit more, ehehe
Now if the promoter don't mind and the roadies don't mind
We can take a little time and we'll leave it all behind

Singin' one more song


-------------------------------------------------------------------

I have tabbed the song as accurately as I could (I know it's not completely correct but 
to what's on the web this is better starting point)
I'm also aware that the Bar lines aren't completely right either (I tried and just got 
counting)

You can just pick or strum the chords in the other parts without losing too much of the song.
