Happy Musical Interlude: The Strawbs, "Lay Down"

Always liked this folksy, happy oldie-but-goody, hope you do too...


"Lay Down"

"Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down,
For my soul.
By still waters I lay down with the lambs,
In pastures green I made peace with my soul.
And I cared not for the night,
While my guiding star shone bright,
By still waters I lay down,
I lay down.

Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down,
For my soul.

At the roadside I took toll of my times.
In dirty streets I made peace with my soul.
May the merciful be right,
Are you ready for the night?
At the roadside I lay down,
I lay down.

Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down,
For my 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.
At the roadside I lay down,
I lay down.

Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down.
Lay down, I lay me down,
For my soul."

- The Strawbs, 1972
