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

                             A                           E
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
                                B                                C          
She'll know I'm safe with You when she stands under my colors
             A                                 E
Oh and life ain't always what you think it ought to be
       B                                  C
No, ain't even grey (?) but she buries her baby
       A                E            B
The sharp knife of a short life
      A                E           B
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

A
So put on your best boys
E
And I'll wear my pearls
B
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

A                   E
 Oh oh, the ballad of a dove
B                  E
         Go in peace and love
                      A
Gather up your tears
                      E
Keep em in your pocket
                          B                                      E
Save em for a time when you're really gonna need them.

(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
