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 lovin’of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holin’ my hand
There’s a boy here in town he says he’ll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
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 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 (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove
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
