I'd Just Love To Lay You Down was originally recorded by artist Conway Twitty and originally released in January 1980. Barrett Baber shares with us his rendition here.

“I’d Just To Love To Lay You Down”

There’s a lot of ways of saying what I want to say to you
There’s songs and poems and promises and dreams that might come true
But I won’t talk of starry skies or moonlight on the ground
I’ll come right out and tell you I’d just love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I’ll let you know how much it means just having you around
Oh darlin’ how I’d love to lay you down

There’s so many ways your sweet love made this house into a home
You’ve got a way of doing little things that turn me on
Like standing in the kitchen in your faded cotton gown
With your hair still up in curlers I still love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I’ll let you know how much it means just having you around
Oh darlin’ how I’d love to lay you down

When a whole lot of Decembers are showin’ in your face
Your auburn hair has faded and silver takes it’s place
You’ll be just as lovely and I’ll still be around
And if I can I know that I’d still love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I’ll let you know how much it means just having you around
Oh darlin’ how I’d love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I’ll let you know how much it means just having you around
Oh darlin’ how I’d love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
I’ll let you know how much it means just having you around
Oh darlin’ how I’d love to lay you down
