If I Die Young: The Band Perry

Watching the Today show and this is the second time I’ve heard this song by this country band.

If I Die Young by. The Band Perry

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

Uh oh, uh 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 known the lovin’ of a man

But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand, there’s a

Boy here in town who 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 them for a dollar

They’re worth so much more after I’m a goner

And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’

Funny when you’re dead how people start listenin’

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

Uh oh (uh, oh)

The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)

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
