Lay Me Down Carolina Conway Twitty
CAPO ON 1st FRET
[E]I can hear the rain a-[B]tappin' on a [A]tin roof down in [E]Charlotte.
[E]It's Sunday morning [B]what a peaceful [E]sound.
[E]The closest thing to [B]being there is [A]looking through the [E]pictures.
[E]Worn and wrinkled from [B]bein' lost and [E]found.
The geese are flyin' south it must be winter in Vancouver.
The fallin' leaves, the seasons come and go.
The years are rolling by and I'm runnin' on a memory.
But lately I've been runnin' kind of low.
[E]Lay me down Carolina, let me [A]rest my weary [E]bones.
[E]In a world so full of people why do I feel [B]alone?
[E]Lift me up, give me direction 'til I [A]know I'm homeward [E]bound.
[E]Lay Me Down Caro[B]lina, lay me [E]down.
Life may take you anywhere and leave you cold and stranded.
But somehow love will always take you home.
Like roots the winding river's all run back to Carolina
And like a ship I'm drifting too far from the shore.
Lay me down Carolina let me rest my weary bones.
In a world so full of people why do I feel alone?
Lift me up, give me direction 'til I know I'm homeward bound
And lay me down Carolina, lay me [F]down.
Carolina let me [Bb]rest my weary [F]bones.
In a world so full of people why do I feel a[C]lone?
Lift me [F]up, give me direction 'til I [Bb]know I'm homeward [F]bound.
And lay me down [C]Carolina, lay me [F]down...
