One More Banjo Laid DownPDF
Words and Music by Joe LaMay

I heard the news on a lonesome day
A long time friend passed away
In a West Virginia mountain town
One more banjo has been laid down

How I loved to hear the way he played
The songs he learned in his younger days
Out on the back porch with a bunch of friends
We'd sing the songs that'll never end

One more banjo laid down
How I long to hear that mountain sound
That old-time music goin' round and round
One more banjo has been laid down

When I was young he took me in
He taught me how to play and sing
He opened up this world to me
Where songs are real and will ever be

Down through the years he's share the songs
With all the young ones who came along
Now that he's gone we'll carry on
For one more banjo that's been laid down


There'll come a time when we must go
And leave behind the things we know
I hope and pray that when we're gone
The ones who stay will carry on
