LIVE FAST, LOVE HARD, DIE YOUNG
Recorded by Faron Young
Words and music by Joe Allison

INTRO:
[E] I wanna [A] live fast, love hard, die [E] young
And leave a [B7] beautiful memo-[E] ry.

[E] I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
And leave a beautiful mem-o-[B7] ry
Don’t want slow walkin’ or sad singin’
Let ‘em have a jub-i-[E] lee
I wanna leave a lot of happy women
A-thinkin’ pretty thoughts of [A] me
I wanna live fast, love hard, die [E] young
And leave a [B7] beautiful memo-[E] ry.

I got a [A] hot-rod car and a cowboy suit
And I [E] really do get around
I got a [B7] little black book and the gals look cute
And I [E] know the name of ev’ry [B7] spot in town
I wanna [E] find ‘em, fool ‘em, leave ‘em
An’ let ‘em do the same to [A] me
I wanna live fast, love hard, die [E] young
And leave a [B7] beautiful memo-[E] ry

I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
And leave a beautiful memory
I’m a wampus cat let me grab my hat
And baby come aiong with me
We’re gonna do some fancy steppin’
We’re really goin’ on a spree
I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
And leave a beautiful memory

Now you may not approve of the things I do
But it really don’t bother me
But don’t ever think you can tie me down
I’m gonna stay footloose and fancy free
So jump back, make tracks, move out
An’ let the pretty gals at me
I wanna live fast, love hard, die young
And leave a beautiful memory.
