  • It was late one night, I was counting out my stitches
    Laying by the side of the road
    I was a long time gone and slipping off my britches
    Feeling like it's time to go home
    Yeah, feeling like it's time to go home

    And in this dream, Bill Tecumseh Sherman
    Glowered at the foot of my bed
    He was long and lean, he spoke in perfect German
    And I recorded all that he said
    Yeah, I recorded all that he said

    And he said
    We all die young
    We all die young
    We all die young
    We all die young

    When I woke next day, layered in the lashings
    Feeling for the hole in my head
    I was thinking 'bout my dad, thinking 'bout the nashings
    Of all the bitter things that he said
    Yeah, all the worrying things that he had said

    And he said
    We all die young
    We all die young
    We all die young
    We all die young

    Son, he said
    We all die young
    (We all die young)
    We all die young
    (We all die young)
    We all die young
    (We all die) we all die young

    And it came to pass when everything had ended
    The world was just a grubby balloon
    And I spoke up, said sorry if I've offended
    This voice came from the back of the room
    Oh, screaming from the back of the room

    It said
    We all die young
    (We all die young)
    We all die young
    (We all die young)
    We all die young
    We all die, we all die young

    One more time
    We all die young
    Bill Tecumseh Sherman We all die young
    We all die young
    Sorry if I've offended We all die young
    We all die young
    We all die, we all die young

    (We all die young)
    (We all die young)
    We all die, we all die young

    (We all die young)
    (We all die young)
    We all die, we all die young Writer/s: Colin Meloy
