LAY ME LOW This is taken from Badseed333's transcription of the whole album, i figured since this was the song i was looking for and it couldn't be found by typing 'lay me low' into the search bar, it ought to be a little more accessible. either way, all credit to the author. i think this is accurate. Bb D They're gonna lay me low (lay me low) D Eb Bb They're gonna sink me in the snow Eb Bb They're gonna throw back their heads and crow, C F When i go F Bb D They're gonna jump and shout (lay me low) Eb Bb They're gonna wave their arms about Eb D All the stories will come out Gm Eb / F When I go Bb D All the stars will glow bright (lay me low) Eb Bb All my friends will give up the fight Eb Bb They'll see my work in a different light C F When i go F Bb D They'll try telephoning my mother (lay me low) Eb Bb They'll end up getting my brother Eb D Who'll spill the story on some long lost lover Gm Eb / F that they hardly know Eb Bb Eb Bb Hats off to the man, On top of the world Dm Gm C F Come crawl up here baby, and I'll show you how it works Bb D If you wanna be my friend and you wanna repent Eb Bb And you want it all to end and you wanna know when Eb D Then do it now, don't care how take your final bow Gm Eb F Make a stand, take my hand, and blow it all to hell. They gonna inform the police chief (Lay me low) Who'll breathe a sigh of relief He'll say I was a malanderer, a badlander, and a thief When I go They will interview my teachers (Lay me low) Who'll say I was one of God's sorrier creatures There'll print informative six-page features When I go They'll bang a big old gong (Lay me low) The motorcade will be ten miles long The world will join together for a farewell song When they put me down below They'll sound a fluegelhorn (Lay me low) And the sea will rage, and the sky will storm All man and beast will mourn When I go Hats off to the man On top of the world Come crawl up here, baby And we can watch this damn thing turn If you wanna be my friend And you wanna repent And you want it all to end And you wanna know when Well do it now Do it now Take a long last bow Take my hand Make a stand And blow it all to hell Lay me low... When I go...
