[Intro]

   A E B C#m

         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


[Verse 1]

               A                             E
Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
                          B                         C#m
She'll know I'm safe with You when she stands under my colors
   A                                 E
Oh and life ain't always what you think it ought to be
   B                     C#m
No, ain't even grey, but she buries her baby
 A             E          B  C#m
The sharp knife of a short life
     A         E          B
Well, I've had just enough time


[Chorus]

         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


[Pre-Chorus]

    A                E       B  C#m
The sharp knife of a short life
     A         E           B
Well, I've had just enough time


[Verse 2]

                    A                E
And I'll be wearing white when I come into Your kingdom
       B                      C#m
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger
    A                E
I've never known the loving of a man
       B                         C#m
but it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
         A                            E
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever

B                        C#m
Who would have thought forever could be severed by


[Pre-Chorus]

   A             E          B  C#m
The sharp knife of a short life
     A         E           B
Well, I've had just enough time


A E B C#m x2


[Bridge]

  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
Funny when you're dead how people start listening


A E B C#m  


[Chorus]

         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


[Outro]

A            E
 Oh oh, the ballad of a dove
B        C#m
  Go in peace and love
 A
Gather up your tears
E
Keep them in your pocket
  B                               C#m
Save them for a time when you're really gonna need them.

          A                E       B    C#m
Oh oh, the sharp knife of a short life
     A         E           B
Well, I've had just enough time

                     A
So put on your best boys
    E
And I'll wear my pearls

This tab is way more accurate than the others if you listen to the song/video carefully.

Thanks for submitting.
