D           
There's a lot of ways to saying what I wanna say to you
         A7                                G                      D  
There's songs and poems and promises and dreams that might come true
D                                        
But I won't talk of starry skies or moonlight on the ground
D                                          A7      G        D
I'll come right out and tell you I'd just love to lay you down

CHORUS:
          D
Lay you down and softly whisper pretty love words in your ear
         A7                                 G              D   
Lay you down and tell you all the things a woman loves to hear
D
I'll let you know how much it means just having you around
D                  A7     G        D         
Oh darlin how I'd love to lay you down

            D 
There's so many ways your seet love's made this house into a home
        A7                         G                 D
You've got a way of doin little things that turn me on
D          
Like standin in the kitchen in your faded cotton gown
D                                           A7      G       D
With your hair all up in curlers I'd still love to lay you down

To chorus
         D  
When a whole lot of Decembers are showing in your face
        A7                       G               D
Your auburn hair has faded and silver takes it's place
D                
You'll be just as lovely and I'll still be around
D                                   A7      G        D  
And if I can I know that i'd still love to lay you down
