Never Die Young

Year: 2007 - Album: One Man Band [CD + DVD]

	  		

Intro: C  F  G  Am  F  Fmaj7  C  F  E  Am  F   Fmaj7  
         G  Am  F   G  Am  F  G  Am  F  G   Am  F  G Am F 

C                        F     G        C                F        G 
We were ring-around-the-rosy children, they were circles around the sun. 


Am          F  Fmaj7        G   Am         F    Fmaj7             G 
Never give up, never slow down, never grow old, never ever die young. 


C                       F     G     C               F      G 
Synchronized with the rising moon, even with the evening star, 


Am               F  Fmaj7         G  
they were true love written in stone, 

Am               F     Fmaj7                G          C  F  Am 
they were never alone, they were never that far apart. 

F                             G                                                  
And we who couldn't bear to believe they might make it, 

F                     G 
we got to close our eyes. 


F                       G            F                      G 
Cut up our losses into doable doses, ration our tears and sighs. 

               C                           F         G 
Oh, you could see them on the street on a Saturday night.  

C                 F       G 
Everyone used to run them down. 


           Am          F          Fmaj7            G     
They're a little too sweet, they're a little too tight,  

Am          F        Fmaj7  G 
not enough tough for this town. 


C                           F        G           
Couldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole, 

C                       F       G 
no, it didn't seem to rattle at all. 


        Am      F       Fmaj7      G 
They were glued together body and soul,  

       Am  F              Fmaj7      G          C    F  G  Am  F  Fmaj7 
that much more with their backs up against the wall. 

G             Am   F        G    Am       F        G 
Oh, hold them up, hold them up, never do let them fall 

Am           F           G            Am          F                       
pray to the dust and the rust and the ruin that names us 

     G             Am 
and claims us and shames us all. 

(Instrumental)   F  G  F  G  F  G  F  Am G 

    C                    F       G       C               F          G       
I guess it had to happen someday soon- wasn't nothing to hold them down. 

Am          F                      Fmaj7    G      
They would rise from among us like a big balloon, 

Am        F    Fmaj7       G 
take the sky, forsake the ground. 

C               F            G      C            F         G 
Oh, yes, other hearts were broken, yeah, other dreams ran dry 

        Am      F   Fmaj7     G          Am       F  Fmaj7    G      C    
but our golden ones sail on, sail on to another land beneath another sky. 

  C          F         G     C           F         G 
(Let other hearts be broken, let other dreams run dry) 

        Am      F   Fmaj7     
but our golden ones sail on, 

 G      Am          F   Fmaj7      G     C   F    G   Am  
sail on to another land beneath another sky, 

F        G      C       F   E  Am  F    Fmaj7     
beneath another sky. 


G         Am    F       G    Am        F   G        Am    F       G           
Hold them up, hold them up, hold them up, hold them up, hold them up, 

A         F 
hold them up?
