If I die young, bury me in satin
        A               Bmadd4/F#
Lay me down on a bed of roses
                 G D 
Sink me in a river at dawn
        A                       Bmadd4/F#

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
        A                         Bmadd4/F#
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger,
     G D 
I've never known the lovin' of a man
        A                          Bmadd4/F#
But it sure felt nice when he was holdin' my hand,
            G D 
There's a boy here in town, says he'll love me forever,
A                        Bmadd4/F#
Who would have thought forever could be severed by...

A penny for my thoughts, oh, no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
      A                    Bmadd4/F#
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
     G D
