Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
Whatever colors you have in your mind
I'll show them to you an' you'll see them shine

Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay, stay with your man a while
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
An' you're the best thing that he's ever seen

Stay lady stay, stay with you're man a while
Why wait any longer for the world to begin
You can have your cake an' eat it too
Why wait any longer for the one you love
When he's standin' in front of you

Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay, stay while the night is still ahead
I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night
Stay lady stay, stay while the night is still ahead.

Lay Lady Lay 2


16 May 1976
cd imgHARD RAIN

  Live, Rolling Thunder Revue 2, Fort Worth TX - 16.may.1976  

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
Whatever colors you have in your mind
I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine.
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.

Forget this dance, let's go upstairs
Let's take a chance, who really cares.
Why don't you know you got nothin' to prove
It's all in your eyes and the way that you move
Forget this dance, let's go upstairs.

Why wait any longer, I don't mean too complain?
You can have love but you might lose it.
Why run any longer when you're runnin' in vain?
You can have the truth but you got to choose it.

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Til the break of day, let me see you make him smile.
I long to see you in the morning light
I long to hold you in the night
Stay, lady, stay, stay with you man awhile.

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
