Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Since the original is played on piano, I like to finger pick this song... 
just a basic up and down arpeggio sounds nice (in my opinion). 
Hope you like it!  :)

Lay It Down ~ Nichole Nordeman

VERSE 1:
Em                C
To every son and daughter
D            E
Wayward and long gone
Em             C
The love of a father
D                E      Cmaj7
Will leave the light on

VERSE 2:
Em                  C
Tried to throw you off track
D              E
A needle in a haystack
Em                    C
I don't know how you found me
D                  E        Cmaj7
Or why you let me come back

PRE-CHORUS 1:
Em             C        Am        D                 Em  
'Cause it's a long way home when all you're left to carry
       C        Am           Em                  D       
Is a heart of stone and the weight of most the world
And I'd like to...

CHORUS:
Em       C
Lay it down a little
Em       C
Lay it down a lot
G                D          Em
I don't want to hold it anymore
         C       Em
Lay it down in pieces
Em       C
Lay it down in whole
G                 D                      
Everything I've carried on my own
Em                  C
Lay it down, lay it down
Em                  C
Lay it down, lay it down

VERSE 3:
Em           C
I spent your money
D              E
Living on the fringes
Em               C
But you threw a party for me
D                 E
Invited all your big friends

PRE-CHORUS 2:
Em           C        Am          D      Em
And I have learned a little bit about a heavy load
           C         Am              Em                  D     
All that gleams and glitters is not worth its weight in gold
And I know I should...

CHORUS:
Em       C
Lay it down a little
Em       C
Lay it down a lot
G                D          Em
I don't want to hold it anymore
         C       Em
Lay it down in pieces
Em       C
Lay it down in whole
G                 D                      
Everything I've carried on my own
Em                  C
Lay it down, lay it down
Em                  C
Lay it down, lay it down
