The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock, and for live performances of long musical improvisation.

To lay me down, once more
To lay me down with my head in sparklin' clover
To lay me down, on e last time, to lay me down

To lay me down, on e last time, to lay me down
To lay me down, to lay me down, to lay me down, one last time

To lay me down
To lie with you, once more, to lie with you
With our dreams entwined together
To wake beside you, my love still sleepin'

To tell sweet lies, one last time and say good night
To lay me down, to lay me down, to lay me down, one last time
To lay me down, one last time, to lay me down
To lay me down, to lay me down, to lay me down, to lay me down
To lay me down
