It's really simple.  All you have to do is make two layers - in one you will have your font/phrase, in the second you will have a repetition of it.  After you type your words, select them and copy them, then go to the second layer and paste them into it.  To paste in the same place as original words press shift+control+V.
Then just adjust the position of these words so that they show up as a shadow under the original words by moving them with an arrow tool or up and down and sideway arrows on your keyboard.  You can adjust the color too, by selecting them and selecting the lighter color in the color pallete.  The layer containing the shadow words should be under the layer with original works, of course.

Thanks for your answers to my questions.  The Shift+Control+V is also a very helpful tool to know.  I appreciate the help.
