Can anyone help with the words and if poss. chords for a trad? song that goes "I'll lay you down love, I'll treat you decent, for surely I'm an honest man..." can't find anything in the digitrad.
Regards, Myrtle.

Try alternative spellings ("doun", for example). The song has been discussed here before. Also look for "solid man".

It is in the Digital Tradition as "I'll Lay Ye Doon, Love" Always try several phrases before deciding that a song is not there and try for phrases that are less subject to dialect variation/spelling.

Jeannie Robertson, and a little more recently, Jimmy Hutchison would be the way to go- they didn't need chords!

I agree with guest above. It's much better sung unaccompanied. That's the way to go.
