lay it down

Well I was going down Highway 96 today

And I finally figured out what I wanted to say

So I wrote it down put it in this song

Hope you don't mind it shouldn't take long

I see you suffering and dying on the inside

You got a feeling like a hole a thousand miles wide

But my friend there is hope

And I'm not talking about just a little more rope

So the word is get yourself up and ready

For a new life, full good and steady

But before we go, something you should start with

Is to grab ahold of that thing that you should part with

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

ooooh won't you lay it down now yeah

So the story goes I don't want to deceive you

If you lay it down, that is what'll relieve you

All that lying and cold hard evil hinting

All that bitterness, all that jealousy squinting

All the heresays, hateful, unkind talkin

All the selfish strivin, and each other balking

We will build ourselves one fine tomb

And throw into it all the misery and gloom

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

ooooh won't you lay it down now

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

lay it down lay it down lay it down now

Oh won't you lay it down
