At this terrible time I know all our thoughts go out to the people that survive those that have succumbed to Coronavirus. So this song came to me and made me think how I'd cope if anything happened to Ann.

Still AliveUndefined


[Dm] I will miss you now you've gone.

[F] I will cry for you at night.

[Gm] It's torn apart my beating [A7] heart.

How can [Bb] I forgive [Gm] myself for [Dm] that?


[Dm] Little pieces of my thoughts.

[F] Come to me in memories.

[Gm] There'll never be a girl like [A7] you.

[Bb] Who could put me back in [Gm] time.

[Bb] Show the world that [Gm] I'm...still [Dm] alive.

[G] Wo-wo-wo. [Bb] Wo-wo-wo. Still [Dm] alive.


[Dm] Did you pass me yesterday?

[F] In a place where people come and go.

[Gm] There beside me in the [A7] street.

You [Bb] disappeared [Gm] before my very [Dm] eyes.

[Bb] Are you [Gm] really still [Dm] alive?

[G] Wo-wo-wo. [Bb] Wo-wo-wo. Still [Dm] alive. (x2)


[Dm] I still miss you now you've gone.

[F] I cry myself to sleep each night.

[Gm] Taken from me – broke my [A7] heart.

[Bb] How can [Gm] I live on from [Dm] that?

[Bb] I cant forgive [Gm] myself for [Dm] that.

[G] Wo-wo-wo. [Bb] Wo-wo-wo. Still [Dm] alive.

Are you. [G] Wo-wo-wo. [Bb] Wo-wo-wo. Still [Dm] alive.

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.


Jeez Phill
Really good, but a bit depressing. 

I wish you and Ann only great health and sound mind - and may peace be with you both

Best wishes.


Your vision is not limited by what your eye can see, but what your mind can imagine.
Make your life count, and the world will be a better place because you tried.

"Use the talents you possess, for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except only the the best." - Henry Van Dyke


And to you my friend. I can't imagine writing an up beat song to such a down beat subject, I felt quite depressed myself when I was done, but Ann has this nack of bucking me up! No not a misspell! Lol

Returning to the original subject, I've lost several good friends in the last few years so I'm well aware of the emptiness one feels. I'm hoping not to lose anymore to this pandemic.

Stay safe my friend.     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.


Phill those lyrics fit a situation I know of . A young man I know lost his wife recently leaving him with a young  family and your lyrics fit perfect.
Wishing you and your family good health.     


Thanks Peatle. My friend had been battling cancer for some years and bearing up to the treatments. Then suddenly one day he suffered a major heart attack and he was gone. His wife was devistated as were we all. Her friends and family gathered round and we gave him a good send off. This happened just before the outbreak so there was a good crowd at the funeral to say farewell. Funny I want to remember the good times but all that's coming is the emptiness.

Stay safe and well.     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.
