​Wildflower Bouquet

This song is by Over the Rhine and appears on the Double album Meet Me At The Edge Of The World (2013).

If I die in the winter send roses
In the spring, magnolias
If I'm called in the summer or in the fall
Best of all - bring me a wildflower bouquet

In the dirt and clay don't lay me down
And stare at a cold lonely hole in the ground
When I go to my Maker in smoke and ash
It won't be your grief I crave

Your tears will not be necessary
Build a blazing fire, drink something merry
When the sparks fly off into the wind
That will be me blowing away

Bury my ashes with the dogs I've loved
My faithful companions from God above
And 'neath a sycamore we'll grow strong
And the roots will bear us away

If my one true Love should join me there
Mother nature soon will be aware
That sycamore will thrum and sing
And we'll have left it that way.

So I don't want you to feel sorry
God knows how I despise your pity
And I'll no longer bear the weight of worry
Those angry robes all fall away

I'll be singing loud and laughing long
A blaze of glory and an untold song
So there's no need for tears my friend
Just bring a wildflower bouquet

If I die in the winter send roses
In the springtime, magnolias
If I'm called in the summer or in the fall
Best of all - bring me a wildflower bouquet
Best of all - bring me a wildflower bouquet
