Dirty Heads - Lay Me Down Ft. Rome lyrics

Well this is how it starts two lovers in the dark
On the run from the one that they call Sheriff Sparks
Six guns by the side and bullets 'round their waist
Two shots to the sky signal sign for the chase.
The safe is nearly empty and they were nearly free
But were seen by the good eye of the mean Billy Greene
And he screamed at the top of his lungs "they're on the run"
It's the two outsiders grab your horses and your guns

I said I wish that we could stay here
But I fear our time is come
We could ride out in the darkness
Chasin' the risin' sun
We gotta pack our bags this instant
We're headin' southbound 'til the next town
And if we arrive there so safely
Baby you could lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down

Well its the story of the two, always on the move
They got nothing left to lose 'cept their guns and they wounds
Now they're crossing borders sheriff's posse on their tail
They'd rather die together than be stuck up in a cell
They drank up all the whiskey and they partied every night
Like it could be the last, the bounty said to 'shoot on sight'
They're chasing in the summer, knew it came with a price
They wouldn't stop running 'til they found the paradise
But the sheriff finally found them with his eyes seeing red
So the lovers had to shoot him down and fill him full of lead
They were finally free to find a place to lay their head
And when they finally did he looked at her and then he said

I said I think that we can stay here
'Cause I feel our time has come
And we can walk down to the ocean
And sit with the rising sun
So unpack your bags this instant
No more running from town to town
And now that we've arrived so safely
Baby you can lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down

Well you're my green-eyed girl and I been running around with you
Its the afternoon and we got nothing left to do
So wipe the dirt off or take your shirt off
And we should go hit the cantina; we got work off

I said its hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes
We been running for awhile why don't you lay down; make me smile
I could never ask for nothing better than this
It's just tequila and the beach, that's why it's salty when we kiss


I said I think that we can stay here
'Cause I feel our time has come
And we can walk down to the ocean
And sit with the rising sun
So unpack your bags this instant
No more running from town to town
And now that we've arrived so safely
Baby you can lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
Oh, lay me down
Lay me down
