Lay Down

The Strawbs

4:4 Key:C

[C]By still waters I lay down with the lambs[F]
In pastures gr[C]een I made peace with my so[G]ul
And I [F]cared not for the [C]night
While my guiding star shone [F]bright
By still [C]waters I lay [F]down
I lay [C]down.

[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[F]For m[G]y [C]soul.

[C]At the roadside I took toll of my times[F]
In dirty streets I found peace for my soul
May the merciful be right
Are you ready for the night
At the roadside I lay down
I lay down.

[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[F]For m[G]y [C]soul.

In deep sorrow I took flight with the sun
From mountains high I gained strength for my soul
I proved stronger than the test
When my spirit came to rest
In deep sorrow I lay down
I lay down.

[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[G]Lay [C]down, [G]I [Gsus]lay me [F]down
[F]For m[G]y [C]soul.
