Layin' on my back
In the newly mown grass
Rain is coming down
But the clouds will pass

The seeds are bursting
The spring is seeping
Lay down my darling
Love ain't for keeping

Black ash from the foundry
Hangs like a hood
But the air is perfumed
By the burning firewood

You bring me tea
Say, "The babe's a-sleepin'"
Lay down beside me
Love ain't for keeping

Lay down beside me
Love ain't for keeping
Lay down my darling
Love ain't for keeping

Love ain't for keeping below
Love ain't for keeping
Lay down, lay down
Lay down my darling

No no no, no keeping love
No no no, no keeping love
No keeping love
No no, no keeping love
No no no

Lay down beside me
Love ain't for keeping
Lay down my darling
Love ain't for keeping
