Lyrics



Refrain:

Down, down, down
The sun goes down
The night comes down
Laid down
As I lay down



A boy in the yard
I try hard to sleep
And try not to think
Of the other afoot
With plans of a crook
To ruin my shelter
And send helter skelter
A boy in the yard

 refrain

Cycling on the highway
Turn off to the side road
Against what they all told
That there would not be a place
To which one could leave the race
And to just be
Then to lay down

refrain

A youth by the road
Doing what he said
And pausing in bed
Amidst all the snow
Hoping not to show
The late rural drivers
A character diverse
As to set out to walk
In snow white as chalk
Only to lay down
So much on the ground
A youth by the road

refrain


What's the diff'
Between Abram and Abraham
Seems to me one thicket-ed ram
Whether my talent, my wealth or my life
Isaac it, I sac' it to my wife !

refrain
