Laying My Burdens Down
Willie Nelson

Well I used to walk stooped from the weight of my tears
I just started laying my burdens down
I used to duck bullets from the rifle of fear I just started laying my burdens down
Oh I'm layin' 'em down I just started laying my burdens down
Oh lay I'm layin' em down I just started laying my burdens down

The flesh ain't nothing but the bark on a tree I just started laying my burdens down
The tree ain't nothing but the soul in me I just started laying my burdens down
Oh I'm layin' 'em down...

My soul took love on a hell of a ride I just started laying my burdens down
A soul ain't nothing but the car love drives I just started laying my burdens down
Oh I'm layin' 'em down...

Love said Mama can I come on home I just started laying my burdens down
And God said son you ain't never been gone I just started laying my burdens down
Oh I'm layin' 'em down...
