"Lay Lady Lay" is a song written by Bob Dylan and originally released in 1969 on his Nashville Skyline album. Like many of the tracks on the album, Dylan sings the song in a low croon, rather than in the high nasal singing style associated with his earlier (and eventually later) recordings. The song has become a standard and has been covered by numerous bands and artists over the years, including The Byrds, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, The Everly Brothers, Melanie, The Isley Brothers, Duran Duran, Magnet, Hoyt Axton, Angelique Kidjo and Ministry, amongst others.
The American band Ministry released a version of the song as a single and as part of their 1996 album, Filth Pig. The song also appears on the band's 2008 covers album, Cover Up. The single release included two versions of "Lay Lady Lay"; one being the standard album version and the other being a shorter edited version.
