"Lay My Body Down" as written by Craig Hunter, James Mccollum, Brian West, Jason Levine, Gerald Eaton and Jon Levine....
So I came all the way from Trenton,
Spent a full night at the station,
In a suitcase made of calico brown
Now I'm almost out of money,
And I'm sleepy and hungry,
I want to lay my body down I don't want to cause
Trouble,
I don't need a bath of bubbles,
Just a floorboard for the pavement on
The ground I'll take a steeple or a stable,
Or a dining room table,
Just to lay my body down
Lay, lay my body down
So I go back to see my baby,
Since no other place'll take me,
When I stop to brush my hair back
With a comb
And I can almost see our porch light,
And it's shining like a northern light,
God how I want to be home
To lay, lay my body down
Lay, lay my body down
But some joke from Albuquerque,
With some white wine and a turkey,
Come to entertain my girl while I
Was gone
This bear thinks everything is funny,
He's got his paws into my honey,
Then he lay her body down
Now just as every schoolyard
Has a teacher,
Every chapel has a preacher,
Every angry man has 6 shells
To a round
I've been an honest man,
I've walked as straight as I can,
But I'm gonna lay his body down
Lay, lay his body down
