             A 
If I die young 
                E 
Bury me in satin 
          B              C#m 
Lay me down on a bed of roses 
               A         E 
Sink me in the river at dawn 
            B                        C#m 
Send me away with the words of a love song 
A      E    B 
Oh oh, oh oh 
 
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother 
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 
The sharp knife of a short life 
Well, I've had just enough time 
 
          A 
If I die young 
           E 
Bury me in satin 
        B               C#m 
Lay me down on a bed of roses 
               A           E 
Sink me in the river at dawn 
        B                        C#m 
Send me away with the words of a love song 
A              E             B C#m 
The sharp knife of a short life 
    A          E         B 
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 
 
Solo: 
A E B C#m  x2 
 
    A 
So put on your best boys 
E 
And I'll wear my pearls 
B 
What I never did is done 
 
                A      
A, penny for my thoughts 
          E 
Oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar 
B                            C#m 
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner 
A                                 E 
And maybe then you'll hear the words I've been singing 
B                            C#m                ( A E B ) 
Funny when you're dead how people start listening 
 
   A          E 
Oh oh, the ballad of a dove 
B       C#m 
Go in peace and love 
A 
Gather up your tears 
 E 
Keep em in your pocket 
B                              C#m 
Save em for a time when you're really gonna need them 
A                 E         B  C#m 
The sharp knife of a short life 
      A           E         B 
Well, I've had just enough time
