Lay Down 03:28
Lay down, lay down Everybody lay down From miles away We must ring true this sound In our countries and state Through our cities and towns Lay down, lay down Everybody lay down I woke up this morning to rain on the roof Nowhere to be, all gone in a poof I need you darling, you’re my living proof With nowhere to be and rain on the roof Lay down, lay down Everybody lay down From miles away We must ring true this sound I drink to my health When there’s no one around Lay down, lay down Everybody lay down Withered away at each sleepy nod One box of wine, so so help me God Everything’s closed up like peas in a pod One more glass of wine, one more sleepy nod Lay down, lay down Everybody lay down From miles away We must ring true this sound In our countries and state Through our cities and towns Lay down, lay down Everybody lay down Six feet from you Is six feet in the ground Lay down, lay down Everybody lay down

With this time, I'm gonna hang out with my wife Been working every day, it's been my life Slowing down is good, we get to talking like we should With this time, I'm gonna hang out with my wife With this time, I'm gonna watch my kids grow Amazed at all the things that they know They understand times are tough, let 'em know we have enough Witth this time, I'm gonna watch my kids grow With this time, with this time Spring is coming, I feel that sun shine Don't feel like doing much, I just wanna be Around the ones I love with this time With this time, I'm gonna try and write a song One of those where everybody can sing along A tune for the lonely, please know that you belong With this time, I'm gonna try and write a song With this time, I'm gonna make my garden green Gonna work it with my hands, not machine Rain and sun will make it tall, we'll harvest it in the fall With this time, I'm gonna make my garden green With this time, with this time Spring is coming, I feel that sun shine Don't feel like doing much, I just wanna be Around the ones I love with this time With this time, I'm gonna realize who I lost Across the river wide, they have crossed My family and me set ashes out to sea With this time, I'm gonna realize who I lost With this time, I'm gonna think about my friends Wondering if they're meeting all their ends I hope they know I'm here, for anything they need With this time, I'm time I'm gonna think about my friends With this time, with this time Spring is coming, I feel that sun shine Don't feel like doing much, I just wanna be Around the ones I love with this time
