Never Die Young Chords
Never Die Young            (Capo 4th Fret)

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 


(Hold them up, don't let them fall).

About the artist behind Never Die Young Chords:

James Vernon Taylor (born March 12, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.[1]

Taylor's career began in the mid-1960s, but he found his audience in the early 1970s, singing sensitive and gentle acoustic songs. He was part of a wave of singer-songwriters of the time that also included Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, Cat Stevens, Carole King, John Denver, Jim Croce, Don McLean, and Jackson Browne, as well as Carly Simon, whom Taylor later married.

His 1976 album Greatest Hits was certified diamond and has sold more than 11 million copies. He has retained a large audience well into the 1990s and early 2000s, when some of his best-selling and most-awarded albums were released.
