Lay Me Down

by John Lyes
(Ohio)

Here lies on the mountain
Body of my kin
A home broke of promises
A war in bloodied sin
On the mountain (on the mountain)
Lay me down

For a preacher watch me over
To a spoken truer wisdom
And the lonely souls to wander
Reaching toward a heaven
On the mountain (on the mountain)
Lay me down

Free, free my ease
Free from southern wind
Be a brother and soldier
Release me and lay me down

I am walking into plow shares
High up on the desert
Beaten with the brow seers
Onward reaching heaven
On the mountain (on the mountain)
Lay me down

Free, free my ease
Free from southern wind
Be a brother and soldier
Release me and lay me down

Here lies on the mountain
Body of my kin
A home broke of promises
A war in bloodied sin
On the mountain (on the mountain)
Release me, release me
And lay me down
