Mary Black – Lay Down Your Weary Tune lyrics

[Chorus]
Lay down your weary tune, lay down
Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself beneath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum

[Verse]
Struck by the sounds before the sun
I knew the night had gone
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn

[Chorus]
Lay down your weary tune, lay down
Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself beneath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum

[Verse]
The ocean wild, like an organ played
The seaweed wove it’s strands
The crashing waves like cymbals clashed
Against the rocks and sands

[Verse]
I stood unwound beneath the skies
And clouds unbound by laws
The crying rain like a trumpet sang
And asked for no__ applause

[Chorus]
Lay down your weary tune, lay down
Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself beneath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum

[Verse]
The last of leaves fell from the trees
And clung to a new love’s breast
The branches bare like a banjo played
To the winds that listened best

[Verse 5]
I gazed down in the river’s mirror
And watched its winding stream
The water smooth ran like a tune
And like a harp did hum

[Chorus]
Lay down your weary tune, lay down
Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself beneath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum

[Chorus]
Lay down your weary tune, lay down
Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself beneath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum
No voice can hope to hum
