Subject: Lay Down by The Strawbs

Title: Lay Down  (Cousins) 
Band: The Strawbs
Recording date 1972 - 73 ish


This is an excellent electric folk/rock song recorded by the Strawbs over 25 years 
ago. I'm sure that the chords are far too simplistic but it sounds reasonable. There is
as I remember an excellent lead break which unfortunately I can't reprodure. Any 
updates or improvements very welcome.

G			                  C
By still waters I lay down with the lambs
	      G			         D
In pastures green I made peace with my soul
      C                 G
And I cared not for the night
                            C
While my guiding star shone bright
         G            C
By still waters I lay down
      G
I lay down.


D   G     D Dsus   C
Lay down, I lay me down
D   G     D Dsus   C
Lay down, I lay me down
D   G     D Dsus   C
Lay down, I lay me down
C    D G
For my soul.


At the roadside I took toll of my times
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.


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
In deep sorrow 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.
