background
Lay Lady Lay was first covered by Jim at Mono in Oslo on the 22nd October 2010.

"A real little venue. A city centre bar really! Going to be packed and very sweaty. Did Dylan's Lay Lady Lay at soundcheck and will debut it tonight. Really looking forward to this show. I know it will be the best yet!" - Jim, October 22nd 2010

"Indeed it went as well as I thought it would. Lay Lady Lay felt very nice, I think it is the first time I have ever sang a Dylan song! Meanwhile all the Lostboy! tunes seem to get stronger each time - always a good sign. I loved this small venue, a real rock n roll bar with a good audience! Pretty much perfect!" - Jim, October 22nd 2010




lyrics
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
Whatever colors you have in your mind,
Iíll show them to you and youíll see them shine.

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed,
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile,
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile.
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean,
And youíre the best thing that heís ever seen.

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile,
Why wait any longer for the world to begin?
You can have your cake and eat it too.
Why wait any longer for the one you love?
When heís standing in front of you.

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead.
I long to see you in the morning light.
I long to reach for you in the night.
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead.
