            A2
If I die young
                  E
Bury me in satin
              Bm               C#
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
G           D      A
Oh oh, oh oh

                    A2                           E
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
                           Bm                                C#
She'll know I'm safe with You when she stands under my colors
Oh and life ain't always what you think it ought to be
No, ain't even grey  but she buries her baby
       A2                E            Bm
The sharp knife of a short life
Well, I've had just enough time

(Chorus)

A2                E           Bm
The sharp knife of a short life
Well, I've had just enough time

A2                   E               Bm            C#
And I'll be wearing white when I come into Your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
A2                    E                              Bm
I've never known the loving of a man but it sure felt nice when he was
C#
holding my hand
A2                                E
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever
Bm                        C#
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
A2             E        Bm
The sharp knife of a short life
Well, I've had just enough time

A2
So put on your best boys
E
And I'll wear my pearls
Bm
What I never did is done

A2
A penny for my thoughts
E
Oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar
Bm                            C#
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
A2                                 E
And maybe then you'll hear the words I've been singing
Bm                            C#
Funny when you're dead how people start listening

A2
If I die young
E
Bury me in satin
Bm                C#
Lay me down on a bed of roses
A2                          E
Sink me in the river at dawn
Bm                       C#
Send me away with the words of a love song

A2                   E
 Oh oh, the ballad of a dove
Bm                  C#
         Go in peace and love
                      A2
Gather up your tears
                      E
Keep em in your pocket
                          Bm                             C#
Save em for a time when you're really gonna need them.
A2                 E         Bm
Oh oh, the sharp knife of a short life
A2                 E         Bm
Well, I've had just enough time
A2
So put on your best boys
E                      Bm
  And I'll wear my pearls
