        T[C/G]raveling down on dif[Em]ferent roads
        T[F]rying hard to le[G]ave the load[C/G]

        It[F]'s so h[G]ard to lay it [C/G]down
Verse 2:
        B[C/G]ack in Eden [Eb]we were tr[F]ied
        Fo[Eb]und ourselves disatis[Bb]fied
        Se[F]eking wisdom that [C/G]she denied
        Tr[F]ying h[G]ard to lay it [C/G]down
        L[C/G]ay it down brot[Em]her,lay it down[F]
        It's so h[G]ard to lay it d[C/G]own
Verse 3:
        H[C/G]ide in me,co[Em]nfide in me
        Do[F]n't you think it's [G]time to be[C/G]

        Y[F]ou and me sou[G]ld lay it d[C/G]own
Verse 4:
        S[C/G]peak to me,[Eb]be unasha[F]med
        Th[Eb]ere's no need in playing g[Bb]ames
        Af[F]ter all we're all [C/G]the same
        Ju[F]st trying h[G]ard to lay it [C/G]down
Verse 5:(a tone higher)
        Wi[D]sh my words could m[F#m]ake it well

        Fi[G]nd a way to [A]lay it d[D]own
Verse 6:(a tone higher)
        B[D]urdened by the th[F]ings i've lea[G]rned

        To find a w[A]ay to lay it d[D]own
Chorus bis:(a tone higher)
        La[D]y it down,[F#m]lay it down
