The Band Perry - If I Die Young chords

      
Standard Tuning, Capo 2

GIf I die young
DBury me in satin
A DLay me down on a bed of roses
G DSink me in the river at dawn
A DSend me away with the words of a love song
G D AOh oh, oh oh
G DLord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
A DShe'll know I'm safe with You when she stands under my colors
G DOh and life ain't always what you think it ought to be
A DNo, ain't even grey (?) but she buries her baby
G D AThe sharp knife of a short life
G D AWell, 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
GSo put on your best boys
DAnd I'll wear my pearls
AWhat 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
G D Oh oh, the ballad of a dove
A D Go in peace and love
GGather up your tears
DKeep em in your pocket
A DSave 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 End: Strum A
