If I Die Young by lyrics:

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 ’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 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, (oh-oh)

*********

The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep ’em in your pocket
Save ’em 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

*********

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 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

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’ve 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

Oh oh, the ballad of a dove

Go in peace and love

Gather up your tears

Keep em in your pocket

Save em for a time when you’re really gonna need them.

Oh 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
