                             LAY ME DOWN - Dirty Head Ft. Rome
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Intro]
G                            
Ho-woah-oo-oh-ho-ho-oo-woah- no
Am
Hoo-oo-woo-oo-oo
G
Ho-oh-oo-woah-oh-oh-oo-woah-no- oo
Am              B
Hoo-woo-


[Verse]
Em                              Am
Well this is how it starts two lovers in the dark
B
On the run from the one that they call Sheriff Sparks
Em                              Am
Six guns by the side and bullets ‘round their waist
B
Two shots to the sky signal sound for the chase
Em                              Am
The safe was nearly empty and they were nearly free
B
But was seen by the wood eye of the mean Billy Greene
Em                              Am
And he screamed at the top of his lungs “they’re on the run!
B
It’s the two outsiders grab yer holsters and yer guns!”


[Chorus]
G                           Am
I said I wish that we could stay here
                        G
But I fear our time has come
                           Am
Oh we can ride out in the darkness
                    G
Chasing the rising sun
                            Am
We gotta pack our bags this instant
                                      G
We’re heading southbound to the next town
                           Am
And if we arrive there so safely
             B      G G G       Am
Baby you can lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down


[Verse]
Em                              Am
Well it’s the story of the two always on the move
B
They got nothing left to lose ‘cept their guns and they wounds
Em                              Am
Now they’re crossing borders sheriff’s posse on their tail
B
They rather die together than be stuck up in a cell
Em                              Am
They drank up all the whiskey and they partied every night
B
Like it could be the last the bounty said to shoot on sight
Em                              Am
So they chased the endless summer though it came with a price
B
They wouldn’t stop running ‘til they found a paradise
Em                              Am
But the Sheriff finally found ‘em with his eyes seeing red
B
So the lovers had to shoot him down and fill him full of lead
Em                              Am
They were finally free to find a place to lay their head
B
And when they finally did he looked at her and then he said:


[Chorus]
G                           Am
I said I wish that we could stay here
                        G
But I fear our time has come
                            Am
Oh we can walk down to the ocean
                    G
Chasing the rising sun
                            Am
We gotta pack our bags this instant
                              G
No more running from town to town
                           Am
And if we arrive there so safely
             B      G G G       Am
Baby you can lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down


[Verse]
G G G                                           Am
Well you’re my green eyed girl and I’ve been running round with you
G G G                          Am
It’s the afternoon and we got nothing left to do
G G G                            Am
So wipe the dirt off or take yer shirt off 
G G G                                   Am
And we should go hit the cantina we got work off 
G G G                             Am
I said it’s hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes
G G G                                    Am
We’ve been running for a while why’oncha lay down make me smile
G G G                                    Am
I could never ask for nothing better than this 
G
It’s just tequila and the beach that’s why it’s salty when we kiss


[Chorus]
G                           Am
I said I wish that we could stay here
                        G
But I feel our time has come
                            Am
Oh we can walk down to the ocean
                    G
Chasing the rising sun
                            Am
We gotta pack our bags this instant
                              G
No more running from town to town
                           Am
And if we arrive there so safely
             B      G G G       Am
Baby you can lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down
       G G G    Am
Lay me down
              G
Lay me down


[Solo:]
 G   Am

Fairly good job, a couple suggestions from a non-expert:

a) I play this in high up barre chords rather than power chords. can you even do minors in powerchords?

b)Where you have it Em, Am, and then B on it's own line, I've found it sounds better to play it Em having it's own line, then Am B sharing the second line.

otherwise nice touch up.

Like the other guy said, it sounds best in reggae chords (which basically means only hit the highest three strings). I use G (xxx433), B(xxx877), Am (xxx555), and Em (xxx987)

Also, your lyrics are wrong. The second chorus is different than the first, otherwise the story wouldn't make sense, because they'd find paradise and then have to pack their bags this instant and leave?
