Iíve transcribed it as they play it in (A) using a capo on the second fret
and playing G-shaped chords.

Are You Afraid to Die?

G              D               G
Are you a stranger to God?
              C                       D
Carried away with your pride?
G                                  C
Tell me sinner did you ever stop to think,
G            D          G
Are you afraid to die?


(Instrumental Bridge) G/D/G


Call on him while he is near.

Moments are swift passing by.

Will you seek him while he may be found?

Are you afraid to die?


Refrain:

C           G          D          G
Are you afraid, are you unsaved?
              D            G
Are you afraid to die?


(Instrumental Bridge)  G/D/G


Are you too wicked to cry?

Would you to Godís bosom fly?

Soon heís coming like a thief in the night,

Are you afraid to die?


(Refrain 2X)
