Crosby & Nash - Lay Me Down Lyrics




Driving out through the windmills
And some of them were still
Sometimes it's hard to catch the wind
And bend it to your will

Even though it's hard to know
Just how the story ends
The road is long and takes its time
On that you can depend

Lay me down in the river
And wash this place away
Break me down like sand from a stone
Maybe I'll be whole again one day

Lay me down, lay me down
Maybe I'll be whole again
Lay me down, lay me down
Maybe I'll be whole again

Somewhere between heaven and hell
A soul knows where it's been
I want to feel my spirit lifted up
And catch my breath again

Lay me down in the river
And wash this place away
Break me down like sand from a stone
Maybe I'll be whole again one day

Lay me down, lay me down
Maybe I'll be whole again
Lay me down, lay me down
Maybe I'll be whole again
Lay me down, lay me down
Maybe I'll be whole again one day

  4. Phil

    Been a CSN fan for 50 years. This song has always spoken to me, now at 64 more then ever.

  5. Carl Weaver

    Music is love

  6. azodark

    This song is the deepest song I ever heard in my life. I found this song in my worst days it gave me the fuel of the depression, but now with my confused my mind, it just gives me the chill. Like driving in a long road at early morning in a cloudy Friday. I will love this song and I will listen to it till the day I die!

  7. Linda Bickston

    sounds from Heaven itself

  8. Roger Goossens

    Thanks for sharing. A few days ago we tried to help an injured fox that came to our garden, but it soon became apparent that the fox was to weak from its injuries to survive. It limped down to the beck that flows past our house where it laid down and passed away some time afterwards. I find it really sad that some would still seek to persecute and hunt these cosmic animals. Anyway. later this song by James Raymond by Crosby and Nash came into my head "Lay me down in the river, And wash this place away, Break me down like sand from a stone, Maybe I'll be whole again one day"

    Kevin

    Thank you Malcolm for doing what you did. You are a decent compassionate human being, in stark contrast to the inbred vermin who hunt and kill these beautiful animals in the name of 'sport'. Those people would not be capable of appreciating a song so beautiful as this.

  11. Scott Pauli

    Going to have this song play at at my death

  12. matthew smith

    Song hits my soul. So beautiful. So peaceful.

  13. Steve

    Brilliant tune, sounds like it would have fit really well in the "Firefly/Serenity" series or movie.

  14. Debra Gaita

    Stunning.

  15. Maria Diaz

    Driving out through the windmills
    And some of them were still
    Sometimes it's hard to catch the wind
    And bend it to your will

    Even though it's hard to know
    Just how the story ends
    The road is long and it takes its time
    On that you can depend

    Lay me down in the river
    And wash this place away
    Break me down like sand from a stone
    Maybe I'll be whole again one day

    Lay me down, lay me down
    Maybe I'll be whole again
    Lay me down, lay me down
    Maybe I'll be whole again

    Somewhere between Heaven and Hell
    A soul knows where it's been
    I want to feel my spirit lifted up
    And catch my breath again

    Lay me down in the river
    And wash this place away
    Break me down like sand from a stone
    Maybe I'll be whole again one day

    Lay me down, lay me down
    Maybe I'll be whole again
    Lay me down, lay me down
    Maybe I'll be whole again
    Lay me down, lay me down
    Maybe I'll be whole again one day

  16. Judith Petree

    This song is on my playlist of music I want played at my Celebration of Life.

  17. Mary Rose Kent

    Pure sweet beauty.

  18. MrAdmiralty1

    Everybody go check out "Dragonfly", from The Thorns' wonderful and only album, from 2003. There were plenty of CSNY comparisons. This tune, from a year later, sounds to me like the grandmasters acknowledging the talent of the apprentices.

    therossyb

    Sounds a bit tooo much like Dragonfly

  19. Tim Schofield

    Doc, could you post Live on??? I would if I knew how. If you do, think many would appreciate it.
