Lay Down Your Arms

Writer: Harry Nilsson
Publisher:
Recorded:
Producer:
Arranger:
Ringo Starr and Stevie Nicks perform "Lay Down Your Arms" on the For The Love of Harry: Everybody Sings Nilsson album. "It came about because Harry was my dear friend and he was really preparing himself for an album, always writing songs. He gave me this song 'Lay Down Your Arms' four or five years ago. And I always thought I wanted to do this song one day if he doesnít do it on an album. So when they came around to doing the album For The Love Of Harry everyone did songs that were already done by Harry. And I had this song that nobody had done but he had written it. It was real emotional for me because I was doing it for Harry and it was 'Lay Down Your Arms,' the gun law and everything else. I just called Don Was. I said, Have you got a couple of hours? Everyone was sort of doing it at home, it wasnít big production records. And he had a studio so I said, Iíve got this idea for this track. Iíll bring it over and see what we think, what we can do with it. We pressed the buttons. He put a line down on piano, we had the keypad for the drums. I did a bit of that and got some rhythm section going. Did the vocals. And he said, 'Letís see if so and so is in?' Some guy came over and played guitar and then Stevie Nicks was down the road, give her a call. And she came over with her girls and they did the vocals. We did it in a night. It was like good old records (laughs) where youíre not suffering for years. You just got it together and people were just popping in. It was like a little conveyor belt in a way. If people would come in and do the guitar. Okay, thank you, we need the room. Because it was just in a house room. Iíd bring in someone else and it was just great. We started Ďround about six at night and it was mixed by three in the morning. And I didnít know Iíd got a good review so itís good to hear." -- Ringo Starr

Harry's version of the song plays during the closing credits for the film "Deep In The Heart" (aka "Hand Gun").
