Well, I used to walk stooped from the weight of my tears
But I just started laying my burdens down
I used to duck bullets from the rifle of fear
I just started laying my burdens down

Oh, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down
Oh, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down

The flesh ain't nothing but the bark on a tree
I just started laying my burdens down
The tree ain't nothing but the soul in me
And I just started laying my burdens down

Oh, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down
Oh, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down

My soul took love on a hell of a ride
I just started laying my burdens down
A soul ain't nothing but the car love drives
I just started laying my burdens down

Oh well, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down
Oh, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down

Love said, "Mama, can I come on home?"
I just started laying my burdens down
And God said, "Son, you ain't never been gone"
I just started laying my burdens down

Oh well, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down
Oh, I'm laying 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down
