Capo- Fret 1 (Fret 2 sounds good too)

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

F#  C    G
Oh oh, oh oh...

[1st Verse]
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
       F#                          C
Oh, and life ain't always what you think it oughta be, no
G                        Ab                F#
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby
          C                G
The sharp knife on a short life
      F#   C               G
Well, I've had just enough time


[2nd Verse]
And I'll be wearing white
When I come into Your kingdom
       G                       Ab
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
     F#              C
I've never known the loving of a man
       G                         Ab
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There's a boy here in town 
Says he'll love me forever
G               Ab                            F#
Who'd of thought forever could be severed by
F#          C              G
The sharp knife of a short life
     F#        C          G
Well I've had just enough time


So put on your best, boys
And I'll wear my pearls
G                   Eb
What I never did is done
A penny for my thoughts
Oh no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
G                        Ab
There worth so much more after I'm a goner
    F#                         C 
And maybe then you'll hear the words I've been singing
G                        Ab
Funny how your dead when people start listening...


   F#                      C
So put on your best, boys
And I'll wear my pearls...

Thanks! :)
