VERSE:
G#  Cm  C#  Eb
 * Ohhhh ohhah  ohhoh oh *

G#                  Cm
So many years spent running away
C#               Eb
How many times I wished I could stay
G#                 Cm
Too much emotion a hole in my heart
C#                  Eb
Feeling alone since we've been apart
    C#   G#
And if I had the chance
    Fm    Eb      C#
I'd never let you go
C#               Eb          F
Just want you to know

Chorus:
Bb          Ebsus2  
Down lay me down
       F
Lay me down
Ebsus2
Lay down burden
Bb          Ebsus2  
Down lay me down
       F
Lay me down
Ebsus2
Lay down burden

VERSE: (Note change of key)
Bb               Dm
So many things I wanted to do
Eb                   F
How many times spent thinking this through
Bb                   Dm
So many nights spent here by the phone
Eb                    F
Wonderin' if you felt just as alone
    Eb         Bb
And while some things have all been
Gm    F        Eb
Crazy from the start
     Eb          F      G
It's tearing me apart

Down lay me down
       G
Lay me down

Lay down burden

Just remember the way I held you
F                   G (E-string/bass step up: 5-7-8-10-12-14-15)
You're always in my heart

Lay me down
