​If I Die Young

This song is by Lauren Alaina.

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 gray, 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 says he'll, love my 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 your 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
The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears and
Keep 'em 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
