Lay Down Chords

   
LAY DOWN - Chords

Written by Dave Cousins

Title: Lay Down
Artist: The Strawbs
Album: Bursting at the Seams (1973)

I saw the other posting on the site for this song. I don't know
where the hell the guvna got his tuning or chords from, but those
are DEFINITELY NOT the correct chords, at least for standard tuning.
I listened to the song (I have it only on compilation, I don't know
if the original version differs), but these are the correct chords for 
standard tuning. NOTE: Watch that after the bridge, the chords change 
to a full step higher!

Enjoy! :-)

Intro:  E  B  A (x4)
=====

Chorus: (x2)
======
      E   B	    A
Lay down, I lay me down

      E   B	    A
Lay down, I lay me down

Lay down, I lay me down

        E
For my soul.


Verse 1:
=======
	  E	B	A    E       A
By still waters I lay down with the lambs

	     E	  B       A     E       B
In pastures green I made peace with my soul

       E         B       E
And I cared not for the night

	  E	  B          A
While my guiding star shone bright

	  E     B      A
By still waters I lay down

A  B   E
I lay down.

=======
	E	B	A    E     A
At the roadside I took toll of my times

Are you ready for the night

At the roadside I lay down

I lay down.
