LAY DOWN SALLY


Eric Clapton


[A] There is nothing that is wrong

In wanting you to stay here with [D] me.

[A] I know you've got somewhere to go,

But won't you make yourself at home and [D] stay with me,

And don't you [E] ever leave


[A] Lay down, Sally, and rest [D] here in my arms,

[E] Don't you think you want someone to [A] talk to.

[A] Lay down, Sally, no [D] need to leave so soon,

[E] I've been trying all night long just to [A] talk to you.


[A] The sun ain't nearly on the rise,

And we still got the moon and stars a-[D]-bove.

[A] Underneath the velvet skies

Love is all that matters, won't you [D] stay with me ,

And don't you [E] ever leave.


[A] Lay down, Sally, and rest [D] here in my arms,

[E] Don't you think you want someone to [A] talk to.

[A] Lay down, Sally, no [D] need to leave so soon,

[E] I've been trying all night long just to [A] talk to you.


[A] I long to see the morning light

Colouring your face so [D] dreamily.

[A] So don't you go and say goodbye,

You can lay your worries down and [D] stay with me,

And don't you [E] ever leave.


[A] Lay down, Sally, and rest [D] here in my arms,

[E] Don't you think you want someone to [A] talk to.

[A] Lay down, Sally, no [D] need to leave so soon,

[E] I've been trying all night long just to [A] talk to you.


[A] Lay down, Sally, and rest [D] here in my arms,

[E] Don't you think you want someone to [A] talk to.

[A] Lay down, Sally, no [D] need to leave so soon,

[E] I've been trying all night long just to [A] talk to you.
