I Will Survive Gloria Gaynor (#1 in 1979)
 Am                              Em

At first I was afraid I was petrified
Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side;
But then I spent so many nights / Thinkin' how you did me wrong
And I grew strong / And so you're back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I'd've known for just one second you'd back to bother me
Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
('cause) you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did I 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,
I've got all my love to give and I'll survive, / I will survive. Hey hey.

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept 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 feel like droppin' in / And just expect me to be free,
Now I'm savin' all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' me
Go on now.. etc.
