Lay Me Down Song Lyrics


I have made some big mistakes
And i find what follows
Is everything we do and say
Rings true or just sounds hollow
Some things I cannot resist
So i'm cleaning up my mess
But every mill has need for grist
Then must give up the excess
Lay me down, fill me up, cover me over
With red dirt and blue grass
I may not always live up
To what is my potential
But as i see things come and pass
We're left with what's essential
Turn me underneath the prairie
When i'm dead and dust and ash
I pray to leave you what will carry
To the one sweet light that lasts
Lay me down, fill me up, cover me over
With red dirt and blue grass
There're a few things that i love
And there are things that i just like
Some things hit you from Above
And some creep up and bite you
There is reggae, rock & roll
There is jazz and jive
There is music that's got soul
And some that gives me hives
It takes good time for me to know
And I don't learn very fast
Where this all will lead and grow
But one thing's sure to pass...
Lay me down, fill me up, cover me over...
Lay me down, fill me up, cover me over
With red dirt and blue grass
