According to the Lay Me Down Songfacts, The Dirty Heads wrote the song with Sublime With Rome's Rome Ramirez during a backyard barbecue at guitarist/vocalist Dustin Bushnell's house.
Well this is how it starts Two lovers in the dark
On the run, from the one That they called Sheriff Spark
Six guns by their side and Bullets around the waist
Two shots to the sky Sing the sound for the chase
