Lay me down in fields of green
Share your love share your dreams
Lay me down below sky blue
Swear me now your love is true

Lay me garlands round my head
Sweet green grass make me a bed
Lay around me boughs of green
Lay me down beside a stream

Lay me flowers round my head
Lay my boots upon my bed
Lay a flag upon my chest
Lay me down to take my rest
