Loretta Lynn Lay Me Down Lyrics

I raise my head and set my sail
In the eye of the storm and the belly of a whale
My spirit stood on solid ground
I’ll be at peace when they lay me down

When I was a child I cried
Until my knees were satisfied
My knees have grown pound for pound
I’ll be at peace when they let me down

When they lay me down someday
My soul will rise and fly away
This old world will turn around
I’ll be at peace when then lay me down

This life isn’t fair it seems
It’s filled with tears and broken dreams
There are no tears where I am bound
And I’ll be at peace when they lay me down

When they lay me down someday
My soul will rise and fly away
This old world will turn around
I’ll be at peace when then lay me down

When they lay me down someday
My soul will rise and fly away
This old world will turn around
I’ll be at peace when then lay me down

When I was a child I cried
