Lay It Down Lyrics

7. Lay It Down (4:13)
Track rating :  80 / 100      Votes :  1     
Lookin' 'round for a feelin'
I love the rhythm and blues
The place was rockin' and reelin'
I thought I'd shake me loose
The band was pumpin' Motown
Lord how they could play
The girls a-started singing
Rock the night away

[Chorus:]
By the midnight hour
They could've raised the dead
They were takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, ringin' in my head
Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down

Whisky, wine and women
They get me though the night
I ain't lookin' for trouble
I ain't lookin' to fight
A little vertical persuasion
Would do me right
What I'm really needin'
Ah, double shot tonight.

By the midnight hour
We were on our way
She was takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, then I heard say

[Chorus]
