No. 17: Conway Twitty, ‘I’d Just Love to Lay You Down’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs


When Conway Twitty released ‘I’d Love to Lay You Down’ in 1980, it rose to the top of country charts and became the legendary country star’s 24th No. 1 single. Despite its name, this addition to the Top 100 Country Love Songs is about far more than just a physical relationship.

Lyrics like, “When a whole lot of Decembers are showin’ in your face / Your auburn hair has faded and silver takes its place / You’ll be just as lovely and I’ll still be around / And if I can’t I know that / I’d still love to lay you downare made sweeter by Twitty’s country twang.

Not surprisingly, thanks to Twitty’s status as a popular country star, ‘I’d Just Love to Lay You Down’ remained on the country charts for 12 weeks.
