INTRO: 

F  C  Am  F  G   C         
F  C  Am  F  G

 
F                  C            Am         
Come out Virginia, don't let me wait, 
    F                    G        C
you Catholic girls start much too late
        F                  C             Am 
Ah, but sooner or later it comes down to fate, 
  F                    G    
I might as well be the one

          F                       C       Am 
Well they showed you a statue and told to pray, 
     F                      G          C 
They built you a temple and locked you away
        F                       C              Am
Ah, but they never told you the price that you pay, 
    F                          G
The things that you might have done

                      C      F             G      
For only the good die young, that's what I said, 
C                        F        G           C 
Only the good die young, only the good die young   

               F                  C         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                   C       Am      
We might be laughing a bit too loud,
    F                  G  
but that never hurt no one
        F            C         Am 
So come on Virginia, show me a sign,
F                     G           C 
Send up a signal I'll throw you a line
F                                 C        Am
That stained glass curtain you're hiding behind 
F                 G                           C    F
Never lets in the sun,  Darlin' only the good die young   
G         C                      F          G           C 
I tell ya only the good die young, only the good die young 

          G                      F                   C 
You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation,
          D                    F  
You got a brand new soul and a cross of gold
         G                         F                 C
Well Virginia they didn't give you quite enough information
           D                                           F      C  Dm C  G 
You didn't count on me, when you were counting on your rosary oh oh oh oh

         F                        C              Am   
And 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                           C            Am
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints,
    F                     G      
The sinners are much more fun,  
                                C     F G
You know that only the good die young baby, 
C                        F        G        C     G  F  C  D  F       
Only the good die young, only the good die young  

              G                           F                  C        
You said your mother told you all I could give you was a reputation
          D                                    F              C  Dm C  G  
She never cared for me, but did she ever say a prayer for me? oh oh oh oh

F                                 C
Come out, Come out, Come out, Virginia, 
      Am               F                    G        C        
Don't let me wait, you Catholic girls start much too late
        F                  C             Am
Ah, but sooner or later it comes down to fate, 
  F                    G                      C     F          G
I might as well be the one, Only the good die young I tell you baby,

C                 F               G        C     F G  C                     
Only the good die young, only the good die young
