Capo on 2

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

                             G                           D
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
                                A                                          D
She'll know I'm safe with You when she stands under my colors
             G                                 D
Oh and life ain't always what you think it ought to be
       A                                  D
No, ain't even grey when she buries her baby
       G                D            A
The sharp knife of a short life
      G                D           A
Well, I've had just enough time

             G
If I die young
                  D
Bury me in satin
              A               D
Lay me down on a bed of roses
                       G          D
Sink me in the river at dawn
            A                               D
Send me away with the words of a love song
G           D      A
Oh oh, oh oh
                       
      G                           D
And I'll be wearing white when I come into Your kingdom
                         A                                          D
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
             G                                 D
I've never known the loving of a man but it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
       A                                  D
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever
             G                                 D
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
G                D            A
The sharp knife of a short life
G                D            A
Well, I've had just enough time

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

          

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


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

       G                D            A
The sharp knife of a short life
      G                D           A
Well, I've had just enough time

G
So put on your best boys
D
And I'll wear my pearls
