Griffin, Patty - Don't Let Me Die In Florida Lyrics




[Chorus:]
Please don't let me die in Florida
I don't care about my name
If you catch me dying in Daytona
Roll my bed on to a train

[Verse:]
I was born in Indian summer
In the South End long ago
And those dirty streets cried out for rain
And this is what I know
And the rains came and they only stopped
Just in time for snow
And the icy cold filled up my shoes
And this is what I know

[Chorus:]
Please don't let me die in Florida
I don't care about my name
If you catch me dying in Orlando
Roll my bed on to a train

[Bridge:]
Well I went to war to fight the Japs
When the war was over
I threw my cap
Just as far as you could throw a thing
I went at home and gave my girl a ring
I put the highways and the black top down
Turned the prairies into the towns
And those hills gave way just like a wedding gown
I put the highways and the black top down


[Verse:]
I don't need to see no mirror
I ain't never gonna see my own face
Just a reflection of somebody
Who's gonna leave without a trace
Roll me over them, hills so cold and proud
Let the night come in and lay my shroud
I ain't never been to Cal-i-forn-aye-ay
Maybe that's where I should end my days

[Chorus:]
Please don't let me die in Florida
I don't care about my name
If you catch me dying in Orlando
Roll my bed on to a train

    I remember hearing this song on my local NPR station back in 2013 and how it made me feel, driving with the sun on my face by myself. Thank you for sharing this!

  4. Rusty Shackleford

    Oh my gosh her backup guitarist is horrible! I've made better sounds walking through the mall with wet shoes. He should be embarrassed

    Patty - you absolutely crushed it with this song.   I have blown all my Dynaudio speakers jamming this one through LA traffic.  Again.  And Again.  Keep em coming, please!

    When you're Patty Griffin, one chord is more than sufficient. :-)
