Capo 4

[Chorus]

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

F   C    G
Oh oh, oh oh...

[1st Verse]

                F
Lord, make me a rainbow
                      C
I'll shine down on my mother
                          G
She'll know I'm safe with you 
                         Am
When she stands under my colors
       F                           C
Oh, and life ain't always what you think it oughta be, no
G                        Am            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

[Chorus]

Am       F
If I die young
           C
Bury me in satin
       G                Am
Lay me down on a bed of roses
               F        C
Sink me in the river at dawn
        G                        Am
Send me away with the words of a love song
            C               G
The sharp knife on a short life
      F    C               G
Well, I've had just enough time

[2nd Verse]

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

[Interlude]

[Bridge]

   F
So put on your best, boys
    C
And I'll wear my pearls
G                   C
What I never did is done
               F
A penny for my thoughts
            C
Oh no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
G                        Am
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                        Am
Funny when your dead how people start listening...

[Chorus]

Am       F
If I die young
           C
Bury me in satin
       G                Am
Lay me down on a bed of roses
               F        C
Sink me in the river at dawn
        G                        Am
Send me away with the words of a love song
  C        G           Am
Oh oh, the ballad of a dove 
        F         C
Go with peace and love
G                     C
Gather up your tears, keep ‘em in your pocket
G                              Am               
Save them for a time when your really gonna need 'em oh
            C              G
The sharp knife of a short life,
     F    C               G
Well I've had just enough time

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