I took one listen to this song and knew I had to learn how to play it. So, I did. It's 
easy. Just listen to the song for proper strumming and rhythm, and enjoy! If you need 
further, you can youtube it. A couple of videos have clear views of the chords. Enjoy!

Lay Me Down
~ Hanson


           G
I’ll never walk away from this

I’ll pull you closely to my chest
       D
With a father’s breaking heart
              G
I’ll walk you one last time into the dark

             G
There are no reasons to explain

A solid kill but there’s no blame
             D
There are no answers though I pray
             G
I die though this is not my grave
      Am	    D
And I lay you down (lay you down)

G
I’ll carry you, child to a place where you can rest

Between tears that seep into the heavens and as I put you down to bed
	    D
It tears me into pieces watching you fight to fill your lungs with breath
G
There’s no need to struggle, there’s no need to struggle

      Am            D
And I lay you down (lay you down)
		 G
Don’t you cry no more
   Am	       D	     G
I lay me down (lay me down)

D	G
Mmm…Ohhhh

D		     C		      G
Well, I’m not ready, I’m not ready for this
D		   C		    G
Oh, I’m not ready, I’m not ready for this

	       G
They'll ask no branches from this soil

My broken spirit steals my voice
	  D
I have no secrets to my name
	 G
Only the shadows hide my shame


And so I lift you upon my shoulder

Inside a splintered wooden chest
      D
To Avalon we line the street
       G
I only hope that you’re finally at rest

D		  G
I’m not ready for this (I’m not ready, I'm not ready)
   Am		D
I lay you down (lay you down)
		 G
Don’t you cry no more (I’m not ready, I’m not ready)
   Am	       D
I lay me down (lay me down)
	   Am	        D
I’d gladly lay me down (lay me down)
