                    F
If I die young
                    C              
Bury me in satin
              G                            A7
Lay me down on a bed of roses
                                F          C
Sink me in the river at dawn
                   G                               F
Send me away with the words of a love song
F         C      G
Oh oh, oh oh

                                   F                                               C
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
                                               G                                   A7
She'll know I'm safe with You when she stands under my colors
F                                                               C
Oh and life ain't always what you think it ought to be
       G                                        F
She ain't even grey but she buries her baby
       F                C                   G
The sharp knife of a short life
      F         C                              G
Well, I've had just enough time

(Chords are the same for chorus and second verse)
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 ring 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 town says he'll love 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

F
So put on your best boys
C                                G
And I'll wear my pearls
G
What I never did is done

(Chords same as 1st & 2nd verse)
A penny for my thoughts
Oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I've been singing
Funny when you're dead how people start listening

(chords same as Chorus)
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

INSTRUMENTAL-- F, C, G, A7... F, C, G, F

(Same as before)
Oh 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
