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 know the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There's a boy here in sun says here, 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

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
