Lay My Burden Down

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Papa Mali with 7 Walkers.

Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down

I know they don't treat me like they used to
Since I laid my burden down
They don't treat me like they used to
Since I laid my burden down

Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down

I don't know if you've all figured it out yet
But the meaning of this song is very simple
Everybody got a whole lot of weight that they carry around with them
A lot of burden, a lot of guilt
You don't have to carry that around with you man
You just lay it down
And I feel so much better since I layed my burden down
Can we just all take a moment and pause
And take our burden and lay it down right now
Lay it down on that ground, lay it down on that dirty ground
Don't give it no mind, man, you know
You got to live right in the moment
'Cause that's all we got, right here what we got
It's a beautiful thing
Yeah it is

No more troubles, no more sorrow
Since I laid my burden down
I'm going home to meet my maker
Since I laid my burden down

Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down

Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
Glory glory, hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
