ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG from The Stranger


INTRO:  F  G  Am  F  G  C  F  G  Am  F  G


F                  G               Am
Come out Virginia, don't let me me wait
    F                    G          C
You Catholic girls start much too late
        F                  G             Am
Ah, but sooner or later it comes down to fate
  F                    G
I might as well be the one
          F                   G           Am
Well they showed you a statue told you to pray
     F                      G           C
They built you a temple and locked you away
        F                       G              Am
Ah, but they never told you the price that you pay
    F                          G
For things that you might have done....


CHORUS 1:
                  C    F
Only the good die young
              G    C
That's what I said
              C   F
Only the good die young
              G   C
Only the good die young


               F                  G         Am
You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowd
   F                   G         C
We ain't too pretty we ain't too proud
   F                   G       Am
We might be laughing a bit too loud
        F                  G
Ah, but that never hurt no one
   F                G         Am
So come on Virginia show me a sign
F                     G             C
Send up a signal I'll throw you the line
    F                            G        Am
The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind
F                 G
Never lets in the sun


CHORUS 2:
                          C    F
Darling only the good die young
               G  C
Woh, woh, woh, woh
                        C   F 
I tell ya only the good die young
              G   C
Only the good die young



          G                      F                   C
You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation
          D
You got a brand new soul
      F
And a cross of gold
       G                          F                 C
But Virginia they didn't give you quite enough information
           D
You didn't count on me
                               F
When you were counting on your rosary
G   Dm   Dm   C
Oh, woh, woh, and
     F                        G              Am
They say there's a heaven for those who will wait
F                        G        C
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
           F                           G            Am
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
F                     G
Sinners are much more fun....


CHORUS 3:
                                C    F
You know that only the good die young
                    G  C
Woh, woh, woh, baby
                        C   F
I tell ya only the good die young
              G   C
Only the good die young

             G                                F                  C
You say your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation
              D
Ah, she never cared for me
                       F
But did she ever say a prayer for me?
G  Dm   Dm   C
Oh, woh, woh, come 
F                       G               Am
Out, come out, come out Virginia, don't let me me wait

You Catholic girls start much too late
                  F        G             Am
Ah, but sooner or later it comes down to fate
  F                    G
I might as well be the one
