[Verse]
G                    C      G
I raised my head and set my sails
       C        G             D          G    
In the eye of a storm, in the belly of a whale
   D               Em    C
My spirit stood on solid ground
     G     D               C      G
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

[Verse]
G            C        G
When I was a child, I cried
  C      G          D       G
Until my needs were satisfied
   D                    Em        C   
My needs have grown up, pound for pound
     G     D               C      G
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

[Chorus]
C             
When they lay me down someday
   G             
My soul will rise, then fly away
D          Em            C
This old world will turn around
     G     D               C      G
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

[Verse]
G               C        G
This life isn't fair, it seems
     C           G         D      G
It's filled with tears and broken dreams
      D                  Em   C
There are no tears where I am bound
         G     D               C      G
And I'll be at peace when they lay me down

[Chorus]
C             
When they lay me down someday
   G             
My soul will rise, then fly away
D          Em            C
This old world will turn around
     G     D               C      G
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

[Instrumental]
G C G C G D G D Em C G D C G

[Chorus]
C             
When they lay me down someday
   G             
My soul will rise, then fly away
D          Em            C
This old world will turn around
     G     D               C      G
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

[Outro]
G            C       G (hold)
When I was a child I cried
