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

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 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 'em 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

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 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
