In 'Canadian Railroad Trilogy' I always thought the lyrics were "drivin' em' in and tie'in em' down" but just the other day I was listening and could've sworn I heard him say "layin' em' in and tie'in em' down"! My brain is getting all messed up!

It depends on the version you're listening to. If I remember right, he sings it the first way in one version and the second way in another. Maybe I'm thinking of the UA version, vs. the Gord's Gold version.
