“Lay Lady Lay,” Dylan’s tardy soundtrack song

Bob Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay,” from the Nashville Skyline LP, peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on Sept. 6, 1969. The song would do a bit better in the UK, reaching #5.

Dylan had written the song to be included in the soundtrack for “Midnight Cowboy,” but was late in submitting it to the film’s producers, who were already leaning toward Harry Nilsson’s cover of the Fred Neil song “Everybody’s Talkin’.”
