If I Die Young Song 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

And maybe then you’ll hear the words I’ve been singing

Funny when you’re dead how people start listening

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
