Lay Down Your Weary Tune Lyrics - The Byrds

Review The Song (1)



Written by Bob Dylan

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

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

The ocean wild like an organ played
The seaweed wove its strands
The crashin' waves like cymbals clashed
Against the rocks and sands
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

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
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

This is one of the Byrds finest songs. It mixes the incomparable Bob Dylan lyric with crystal clear instrumentation to produce a little mini anthem celebrating the mystery of life and the universe and all its potential. For a guitar player the arrangement is simple enough to pick up on but plenty of room to mix up the changes and play some real music!
