[Intro]

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

[Verse 1]

                             G                           Bm
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
                                A                                         Bm
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                                  Bm
No, ain't even grey (?) but she buries her baby
       G                D            A
The sharp knife of a short life
      G                D           A
Well, I've had just enough time

[Chorus]

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

[Pre-Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

G                   D               A            Bm
And I'll be wearing white when I come into Your kingdom
G                   D              A        Bm
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
G                    D                              A
I've never known the loving of a man but it sure felt nice when he was 
 Bm
holding my hand
G                                D
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever
A                        Bm
Who would have thought forever could be severed by

[Pre-Chorus]

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

[Bridge]

G
So put on your best boys
D
And I'll wear my pearls
A
What I never did is done

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

[Chorus]

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


[Outro]

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

good tab! chords are pretty good. except your missing either a C#m or Bm4 in there. I use the Bm4. And just an opinion, because im just really picky about this stuff, i hate it when people dont put chords on a whole section of words and say they are the same pattern as the chorus or something!!! no offense though! :)
