"If I Die Young" lyrics

If I Die Young

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in a river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh, uh oh
Lord make me a rainbow
I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you
When she stands under my colors, oh
And life ain't always
What you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey
But she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life
Oh well, I've had just enough time

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life
Oh well, I've had just enough time

And I'll be wearing white
When I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring
On my little cold finger
I've never known the loving of a man
But it sure felt nice
When he was holding my hand
There's a boy here in town
Says he'll love me forever
Who would have thought
Forever could be severed by

The sharp knife of a short life?
Oh well, I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys
And I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts
Oh, no, I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more
After I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear
The words I been singing
Funny when you're dead
How people start listening

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh
The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears
Keep them in your pocket
Save them for a time
When you're really gonna need them, oh

The sharp knife of a short life
Oh well, I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys
And I'll wear my pearls
