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 (1)________ song
(Oh oh oh 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 (2)________ 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 (3)________ on my little cold finger
I've never known the loving of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There's a boy here in (4)________ says he'll (5)________ 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 (6)________ more after I'm a goner
And (7)__________ then you'll hear the words I been singing
Funny when you're dead how (8)____________ start listening

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
(Oh oh)
The ballad of a dove
(Oh oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in (9)________ pocket
Save them for a time
When your really (10)__________ need 'em (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
