"To Lay Me Down" as written by Jerome J. Garcia and Robert C. Hunter....
To lay me down, once more
To lay me down with my head in sparkling clover
Let the world go by, like the clouds a'streamin'
To lay me down, one last time, to lay me down

To lay me down, oh, to lay me down
To lay me down, one last time, to lay me down

To be with you, once more, to be with you
With our bodies entwined together
Let the world go by, all lost in dreaming
To lay me down, one last time, to lay me down

To lay me down, oh, to lay me down
To lay me down, one last time
To lay me down

To lie with you, once more, to lie with you
With our dreams close together
To wake beside you, my love still sleeping
To tell sweet lies, one last time and say good night
To lay me down, to lay me down
To lay me down, one last time
To lay me down, one last time, to lay me down

To lay me down, one last time
To lay me down, one last time

    General CommentI just want to say that if I were to die --literally die---- I want my ex-boyfriend to listen to this song and think of me. From the Reckoning album.

    My grandpa broke us up a long time ago (I forgive him), but I still think of my BF often...
