I Will Survive  Diana Ross

At f[Am]irst I was afraid, I was p[Dm]etrified
Kept thinkin' [G]I could never live without you [C]by my side
Then I s[Am]pent so many nights thinking [Dm]how you did me wrong
And I grew st[E]rong
And I learned h[E7]ow to get along
And so you're b[Am]ack from outer s[Dm]pace
I just walked [G]in to find you here, with that sad l[C]ook upon your face
I should have c[Am]hanged that stupid lock
I should have m[Dm]ade you leave your key
If I had k[E]nown for just one second you'd be [E7]back to bother me
Go on now, [Am]go walk out the d[Dm]oor
Just turn a[G]round now
'Coz you're not we[C]lcome anymore
W[Am]eren't you the one who tried to [Dm]break me with goodbye?
Did you think I'd c[E]rumble?
Did you think I'd l[E7]ay down and die?
Oh no not [Am]I, I will s[Dm]urvive
For as l[G]ong as I know how to love, I k[C]now I'll stay alive
I've got a[Am]ll my life to live
And I've got [Dm]all my love to give
I'll su[E]rvive
I will s[E7]urvive
Hey hey

then you just play Am Dm G C Am Dm E E7 once and then the chords are the same
throughout the rest. I'll just put the rest of the words on.

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Just trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry, but now I hold my head up high
And you see me, somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you
And so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
But now I'm savin' all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' me

Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
You're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
Did you think I'd crumble?
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
And I've got all my love to give
I'll survive
I will survive
Hey hey (x2)
