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 down" are 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.
