The Band Perry – The Song If I Die Young lyrics

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me down the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Oh oh Oh oh

Lord, make me a rainbow
And I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors
Oh and, life aint always what it outta be no
Ain't even gray, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life... Oh 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 down the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Oh oh Oh oh

The sharp knife of a short life... Oh 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 your cold little finger
And I'll never know the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holdin' my hand
There's a boy here in town he says he'll love me forever
Who thought forever could be severed by

A sharp knife of a short life... Oh well
I've had just enough time...

So put out your best boys and I'll put on my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no I'll sell for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And then maybe you'll feel the words I've been singin'
Funny how you're dead that people start listin'...

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me down 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 them tears and put them in your pocket
Save them for a time when your 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
