Please don’t let me die in Florida,
I don’t care about my name.
If you catch me dying in Daytona
Roll my bed on to a train.

I was born in Indian summer,
In the South End long ago.
And those dirty streets cried out for rain
And this is what I know.

And the rains came and they only stopped
Just in time for snow.
And the icy cold filled up my shoes
And this is what I know.

Please don’t let me die in Florida,
I don’t care about my name.
If you catch me dying in Orlando
Roll my bed on to a train.

Well I went to war to fight the Japs
When the war was over I threw my cap
Just as fun as you could throw a thing
I went at home and gave my girl a ring.
I put the highways and the black top down
Turn the praries into the towns
And those hills give away just like a wedding gown
I put the highways and the black top down.

I don’t need to see no mirror,
I ain't never gonna see my own face,
Just a reflection of somebody
Who’s gonna leave without a trace.

Roll me over them hills so old and proud
Let the night come in and lay my shred
I never been to Cal-i-forn-aye-ay
Maybe that’s where I should end my days.

Please don’t let me die in Florida,
I don’t care about my name.
If you catch me dying in Orlando
Roll my bed on to a train.
