Lay Down Sally

Words & Music:

Eric Clapton, Marcy Levy & George Terry


A                                                               D

There is nothing that is wrong in wanting you to stay here with me.


I know you've got somewhere to go


But won't you make yourself at home and stay with me?


And don't you ever leave.



A                    D

Lay down, Sally, and rest you in my arms.

E                                   A

Don't you think you want someone to talk to?

A                   D

Lay down, Sally, no need to leave so soon.

E                                       A

I've been trying all night long just to talk to you.


The sun ain't nearly on the rise

And we still got the moon and stars above.

Underneath the velvet skies

Love is all that matters, won't you stay with me?

And don't you ever leave.




I long to see the morning light colouring your face so dreamily.

So don't you go and say goodbye,

You can lay your worries down and stay with me.

And don't you ever leave.
