(Chorus)
Please dont let me die in Florida
I dont 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 dont let me die in Florida
I dont care about my name
If you catch me dying in Orlando
Roll my bed on to a train

(Bridge)

(Verse)
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 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

(Bridge)

(Verse)
I dont need to see no mirror
I aint never gonna see my own face
Just a reflection of somebody
Whos gonna leave without a trace
Roll me over over them hills so old and proud
Let the night come in and lay my shroud
I aint never been to Cal-i-forn-aye-ay
Maybe thats where I should end my days

(Chorus)
Please dont let me die in Florida
I dont care about my name
If you catch me dying in Orlando
Roll my bed on to a train
