Lay My Burden Down Tab
Lay My Burden Down
Alison Krauss

B      A      E
Gonna lay my burden down

B    A      E
Lay my body in the ground

C#sus2 C#m  D
Cold   clay against my skin

A               E
But I don't care at all

B       A        E
Can't seem to find my piece of mind

B          A     E
So with the earth I'll lay entwined

C#sus2 C#m  D
Six    feet underground

A                 E
My feet are warm and dry

Bsus4        B
When I get to the other side

Bsus2            B
I'll put your picture way up high

Bsus4          B
But I'm not coming back to you

Bsus2    Bm   B  E
It's just too far

If I was cast off on the sea
Would you come and look for me
Or would you just let me sink
Beneath the waves so blue

What if I had learned to fly
Fly all night till day drew nigh
Touch down upon a branch and
Scan the crowd for you

Bsus4           B
When I touch my feet on the land

Bsus2              B
I'll kiss your lips and take your hand

Bsus4            B
But you know I'm not here to stay

Bsus2    Bm
It's just too far

B                 A
Darling can't you hear me cry

G
My bones are broke

Bm
My tongue is tied

D               A
The moon is swaying back and forth

C               B 
Against the navy sky

F#m
Is all I can see

G                 Bm
My body is trembling on my knees

D             A
Just have a little mercy on me

C            B     E
Run away and hide

When I sleep the angels sing
But I cannot hear a thing
Eyes close
Dreaming of better days gone by

When I wake the trumpets play
And I'm standing at the gates
Fall down and joy
I know my race has just been won

When I was young my momma would say
Well life is hard, but that's OK
If you can make it through the day
It's not that far
No, it's not that far

About the artist behind Lay My Burden Down Tab:

Alison Krauss (IPA: /ˈælɪsʌn kraʊs/[1]) (born July 23, 1971)[2] is an American bluegrass-country singer and fiddle player. She entered the music industry at a young age, winning local contests by the age of ten and recording for the first time at fourteen. She signed with Rounder Records in 1985 and released her first solo album at sixteen in 1987. She was invited to join the band with which she still performs, Alison Krauss + Union Station (AKUS), and later released her first album with them as a group in 1989.

She has thus far released more than ten albums, appeared on numerous soundtracks, and has helped usher in a new interest in bluegrass music in the United States. Her soundtrack performances have led to further popularity, including the Grammy-winning O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, an album also credited with raising American interest in bluegrass, and the Cold Mountain soundtrack, which led to her performance at the 2004 Academy Awards. During her career she has won 21 Grammy Awards—more than any other female artist and tied for seventh-most among all artists—along with numerous other awards.
