D   /c   /b-a G     C         G
Lay down your weary tune, lay down,
             Em       D
Lay down the song you strum,
    /c   /b-a G   D/a        G           C
And rest yourself 'neath the strength of strings
             G  D /c-b G  . D     
No voice can hope to   hum.

       /c /b-a G       C        G
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
Lay down your weary tune, lay down,
Lay down the song you strum,
And rest yourself 'neath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum.
