lay me down country song lyrics

Lay Me Down

Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn
I raised my head and set myself
In the eye of the storm, in the belly of a whale
My spirit stood on solid ground
I’ll be at peace when they lay me down
When I was a child, I cried
Until my needs were satisfied
My needs have grown up, pound for pound
I’ll be at peace when they lay me down
When they lay me down someday
My soul will rise, then fly away
This old world will turn around
I’ll be at peace when they lay me down
This life isn’t fair, it seems
It’s filled with tears and broken dreams
There are no tears where I am bound
And I’ll be at peace when they lay me down
When they lay me down some day
My soul will rise, then fly away
This old world will turn around
I’ll be at peace when they lay down
When they lay me down some day
My soul will rise and fly away
This old world will turn around
I’ll be at peace when they lay me down
When I was a child, I cried

lay me down country song lyrics

I do believe it’s, “Lay you down”

“Lay you down and softly whisper

pretty love words in your ear,

Lay you down and tell you all the things

a woman loves to hear.

Darlin’, you don’t know how much it means

just havin’ you around.

Darlin’, how I’d love to lay you down.”

-Lay You Down, Conway Twitty
