lyrics

I hear him callin’
Say he’s gonna leave
He’s gonna ride on the settin’ sun
He ain’t scared to go there
He’s traveled before
But tonight’s gonna be his very last one

And it’s crazy all around
Rustlin’ in and rustlin’ out
The stereo’s playin’, we’re just passing time
And there ain’t much left to say here, cause when it all comes down
We’ve left it all up to the toss of the dime

Who’s gonna lay you down tonight?
Tears falling like pouring rain
And hold your hand while you wash away
Who’s gonna lay you down tonight?
Put aside the fear and the pain
And hold your hand while you die

She stands in the doorway
She’s got her head held high
She knows his time on earth is done
And that sparkle in his eye
As the sun falls from the sky
He says, my love you are the only one

I heard the news
They laid him in a black suit with flowers all around
The town is filled with strangers that love him still
They’ve come to see his burial ground

I say, who’s gonna lay you down?

Who who who
Who who who
Whooooooooo

(Repeat)

Who’s gonna lay you down tonight?
Tears falling like pouring rain
And hold your hand while you wash away
Who’s gonna lay you down tonight?
Put aside the fear and the pain
And hold your hand while you die

I say, who’s gonna lay you down?
Who’s gonna lay you down?
