Thread Name: Origin: Done Laid Around
Subject: RE: Curious: Who Wrote 'Done Laid Around'?
The tune is folk-based. "Lights in the Valley Outshine the Sun" or "Do Deliver Me". The recent bluegrass offering "On My Way Back Home" or "Two Dollar Bill". The tune has been around for a long time. "It Takes A Worried Man" is another variation.

I believe that Paul Clayton wrote the words to "Done Laid Around".
