LyricsEdit

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


Oh oh Oh 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 gray, 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 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, 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 singin'


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


Oh 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 your really gonna need them 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
