Never Die Young (Capo 4th Fret) Intro-C F G Am F Fmaj7 C F E Am F Fmaj7 G Am F G Am F G Am F G Am F G Am F C F G C F G We were ring-around-the-rosy children, they were circles around the sun. Am F Fmaj7 G Am F Fmaj7 G Never give up, never slow down, never grow old, never ever die young. C F G C F G Synchronized with the rising moon, even with the evening star, Am F Fmaj7 G they were true love written in stone, Am F Fmaj7 G C F Am they were never alone, they were never that far apart. F G And we who couldn't bear to believe they might make it, F G we got to close our eyes. F G F G Cut up our losses into doable doses, ration our tears and sighs. C F G Oh, you could see them on the street on a Saturday night. C F G Everyone used to run them down. Am F Fmaj7 G They're a little too sweet, they're a little too tight, Am F Fmaj7 G not enough tough for this town. C F G Couldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole, C F G no, it didn't seem to rattle at all. Am F Fmaj7 G They were glued together body and soul, Am F Fmaj7 G C F G Am F Fmaj7 that much more with their backs up against the wall. G Am F G Am F G Oh, hold them up, hold them up, never do let them fall Am F G Am F pray to the dust and the rust and the ruin that names us G Am and claims us and shames us all. (Instrumental) F G F G F G F Am G C F G C F G I guess it had to happen someday soon- wasn't nothing to hold them down. Am F Fmaj7 G They would rise from among us like a big balloon, Am F Fmaj7 G take the sky, forsake the ground. C F G C F G Oh, yes, other hearts were broken, yeah, other dreams ran dry Am F Fmaj7 G Am F Fmaj7 G C but our golden ones sail on, sail on to another land beneath another sky. C F G C F G (Let other hearts be broken, let other dreams run dry) Am F Fmaj7 but our golden ones sail on, G Am F Fmaj7 G C F G Am sail on to another land beneath another sky, F G C F E Am F Fmaj7 beneath another sky. G Am F G Am F G Am F G Hold them up, hold them up, hold them up, hold them up, hold them up, A F hold them up (Hold them up, dont let them fall).
