I’d Love to Lay You Down” is a song written by Johnny MacRae, and recorded by American country music artist Conway Twitty. It was released in January 1980 as the first single from the album Heart and Soul. “I’d Love to Lay You Down” was Conway Twitty’s 24th number one on the country chart. The single stayed at number one for one week.

In 2002, Daryle Singletary released a cover version which went to number 43 on the same chart.

Conway’s version of this song features an extremely unusual series of key changes: the song progressively lowers in key instead of the musical standard of changing keys upwards.
