Well I used to walk stooped
From the weight of my tears
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 layin' 'em down
I just started laying my burdens down
Oh lay I'm layin' 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
I just started laying my burdens down
Oh I'm layin' 'em down
