Both me and my older brother grew up listening to the Gentle Giant of Country Music, one of the Greatest Crooners of all time, Don Williams, or Don Chacha (Hindi for Uncle) as we used to call him when we were kids. This was one of the first songs I learned to play on Guitar when I started out back in Summer of 2006. Last night, as snow flakes were descending from the sky, I recorded a rough rendition.
Enjoy the song! Here is the MP3 of the recording. For some reason, the audio quality didn’t turn out that great so bear with it. This song is dedicated to Gudiya.[audio:http://gdhar.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/Gautam%20Dhar%20-%20Lay%20Down%20Beside%20Me.mp3]
Iâ€™ve spent my life looking for you
Finding my way wasnâ€™t easy to do
but I knew there was you all the while
And itâ€™s been worth every mileSo lay down beside me
Love me and hide me
Kiss all the hurtinâ€™ of this world away
Hold me so close that I feel your heartbeat
And donâ€™t ever wander away
Mornings and evenings all were the same
And there was no music till I heard your name
But I knew when I saw you smile
Now I can rest for awhile
So lay down beside me…
felt like i have gone into older times………touched my heart and most importantly my soul
Cowboy beat keeps me reminding of Clint Eastwood movies. In the 60s and 70s they were very famous. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly cannot be forgotten and they have become immortal. Before that and after that so many have come but For A Few Dollars More is my all time favourite! Try that one if you can one day and see the effect by yourself.
Yep I grew up on spaghetti westerns. Clint’s surely a gem.
Ennio Morricone music in all the Clint Eastwood movie’s scored best in the world. I am glad enjoy them too! Thanks!
touching some odd isles of mind.
Touchy song with great voice……
