"Stay with Me (Brass Bed)" is a song written by Terry McBride, Brett James and Jedd Hughes, and recorded by American country music singer Josh Gracin. It was released in April 2005 as the third and final single from his self-titled CD. Originally titled just "Brass Bed" on the album, it gained the alternative title upon its release to radio.


A mid-tempo set in triple meter in the key of A minor, the song is punctuated by mandolin and a string section throughout. Its lyrics focus on the narrator, who is addressing his lover, requesting that she stay with him "on this big brass bed". The radio edit features an abridged intro.
