PRIVATE PLENTY  
©1998 Sally Fingerett & Tom Paxton, Green Fingers Music, BMI/ Pax Songs, ASCAP

CHORUS:
I lay me down surrounded by the glory
I lay me down surrounded by the glory
I lay me down surrounded by the glory
Of my own, private plenty

There’s a rock and there’s a hard place, where everybody spends some time
Cold rain on a sad face, more worries on a troubled mind
I believe there’s a secret place waiting deep within
You never know just what you’ll find
You might discover peace of mind

CHORUS

We’re all walking in the desert, stumblin’ underneath the sun
Suffering from the same hurts, thinking we’re the only one
Never knowing of that secret place, waiting deep within
Never taking time to find, just a little piece of mind

CHORUS

You know the world is bound to spin, with or without you
Let it go, look deep within, what more can you do
But go lay down surrounded by the glory  
Go lay down surrounded by the glory
Go lay down surrounded by the glory
Of your own, private plenty
Give a little gift of love, from your private plenty
