      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "Lay Down Your Weary Tune"

      Lay down your weary tune, lay down
      Lay down the song you strum
      And rest yourself 'neath the strength of strings
      No voice can hope to hum

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

      Lay down your weary tune, lay down
      Lay down the song you strum
      And rest yourself 'neath the strength of strings
      No voice can hope to hum

      The ocean wild like an organ played
      The seaweed wove its strands
      The crashing waves like cymbals clashed
      Against the rocks and the sand

      Lay down your weary tune, lay down
      Lay down the song you strum
      And rest yourself 'neath the strength of strings
      No voice can hope to hum

      I stood unwound beneath the skies
      And clouds unbound by laws
      The crying rain like a trumpet sang
      And asked for no applause

      Lay down your weary tune, lay down
      Lay down the song you strum
      And rest yourself 'neath 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 moan
      To the winds that listen the best

      I gazed down in the river's mirror
      And watched its winding strum
      The water smooth ran like a hymn
      And like a harp did hum

      Lay down your weary tune, lay down
      Lay down the song you strum
      And rest yourself 'neath the strength of strings
      No voice can hope to hum
