To Lay Me Down

Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia
As performed by The Cowboy Junkies


[NC] To lay me [Em] down, once [C] more
to lay me [G] down
with my [Bm] head [A] in sparkling [E] glory
[G] Let the world go [D] by,
[Am] like clouds a- [C] streaming
to lay me [G] down, [F] one last [C] time
to lay me [G] down.

[G] To be with [Em] you, once [C] more
to be with [G] you
with our [Bm] bodies [A] entwined [E] together
[G] Let the world go [D] by,
[Am] all lost in [C] dreams
to lay me [G] down, [F] one last [C] time
to lay me [G] down.

solo on verse

[G] To lie with [Em] you, once [C] more
to lie with [G] you
with our [Bm] dreams [A] close [E] together
[G] To wake beside [D] you,
[Am] my love still [C] sleeping
to tell sweet [G] lies, [F] one last [C] time
then say good [G] night

To lay me [Bm] down, [Am] oh-oh,
to lay me [D] down
[C] to lay me [G] down, [F] one last [C] time
to lay me [G] down. [F] [C] [G]
