lyrics

Got a little postcard from the girl next door
said she don't wanna see me no more
posted one back the very next day saying baby won't you come along down here see things my way

her papa done told me "boy, she done messed up bad"
told him she's the best thing that i ever had
he said "son someday you gonna go real far if they don't take you down, down, down now now now"

Come on baby won't you lay me down
Come on mama lay it on down
Come on mama lay me down
Come on down, down now now now

Got a painted picture of her on my arm
carried her around the world ya know I kept her from harm
I put it down in ink most permanently
Lest they take me down to the bottom of the deep blue sea

Come on baby won't you lay me on down
Come on darlin won't you lay me down
Come on mama lay me on down
Come on down, down now now now

She drank the water I drank the wine
Begged for mercy she kept on tryin'
She gave up the water and I gave up the wine
And she's still running, yeah runnin' hard

Comin' off the big boat, make my way up town
Try'n to find a woman that just can't be found
Climbin' up the back porch glass dust on the floor
I guess they took her down, down now now now now

Come on baby won't you lay me down
Come on mama won't you lay me down
Come on darlin' lay it on down
Come on down, down now now now
