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

(Verse)
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.
Andя the icey cold filled up my shoes
And this is what I know.

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

(Bridge)

(Verse)
Well I went to war to fight the Japs
When the war was over
I threw my cap
Just as far as you could throw a thing
I went home and gave my girl a ring.
I put the highways and the black top down
Turned the prairies into the towns
And those hills gave way just like a wedding gown
I put the highways and the black top down.я

(Verse)
I don’t need to see no mirror,
I ain’t never gonna seeя my own face,
Just a reflection of somebody
Who’s gonna leave without a trace.
Roll me over over them hills so old and proud
Let the night come in and lay my shroud
I ain’t never been to Cal-i-forn-aye-ay
Maybe that’s where I should end my days.

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