  1. Lay Me Down

From the recording Lay Me Down

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
