Lyrics Chord: The Band Perry – If I Die Young


Standard Tuning, Capo 2

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

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

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

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
G D A
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
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

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
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
