If I Die Young

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, 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, 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, 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 holdin’ my hand 
there’s a boy here in town says that he’ll love me forever 
Whoever thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life
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 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 em’ for a dollar 
They’re worth so much more after I’m a goner 
and maybe then you’ll hear the words I’ve been singing 
funny when you’re dead how people start listenin’

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 (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep ‘em in your pocket
Save them for a time when you’re really gonna need ‘em, oh 
The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time
So put on your best boys
And I’ll wear my pearls

So put on your best boys, and I’ll wear my pearls

Surprise!
