[Intro]

         G
If I die young
           D
Bury me in satin
        A               D6add9/A
Lay me down on a bed of roses
               G          D
Sink me in the river at dawn
        A                        D6add9/A
Send me away with the words of a love song
G       D      A
  Oh oh, oh oh
  
  
[Verse]  

               G                             D
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
                          A                         D6add9/A
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                     D6add9/A
No, ain't even grey, but she buries her baby


[Bridge]

 G             D          A  D6add9/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               D6add9/A
Lay me down on a bed of roses
               G          D
Sink me in the river at dawn
        A                             D6add9/A
Send me away with the words of a love song


[Bridge]

    G                D       A  D6add9/A
The sharp knife of a short life
     G         D           A 
Well, I've had just enough time


[Verse]

                    G                D          
And I'll be wearing white when I come into Your kingdom
       A                      D6add9/A
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
    G                D          
I've never known the loving of a man 
       A                         D6add9/A
but it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
         G                            D          
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever
A                        D6add9/A
Who would have thought forever could be severed by


[Bridge]

   G             D          A  D6add9/A
The sharp knife of a short life
     G         D           A 
Well, I've had just enough time


[Instrumental]

G D A D6add9/A x2


[Interlude]

  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                         D6add9/A
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                          D6add9/A
Funny when you're dead how people start listening


[Instrumental]

G D A D6add9/A 


[Chorus]

         G
If I die young
           D
Bury me in satin
        A               D6add9/A
Lay me down on a bed of roses
               G          D
Sink me in the river at dawn
        A                        D6add9/A
Send me away with the words of a love song


[Outro]

G            D
 Oh oh, the ballad of a dove
A        D6add9/A
  Go in peace and love
 G
Gather up your tears
D
Keep them in your pocket
  A                               D6add9/A
Save them for a time when you're really gonna need them.

          G                D       A    D6add9/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
And I'll wear my pearls

put you index on the 5th string on the 3rd fret, your middle finger on 3rd string, 4th fret and your ring finger on 4th string and 4th fret...and don't play the first finger, but play all the others...

I've made a video tutorial for "If I die Young", where I explain how to play Bm4..
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-h2LoTzeeI) go to 1:21, and I explain it better there

I want to post or [tab]
