I'm Still Standing

Words & Music:

Elton John & Bernie Taupin


Am     Dm/A      E/A       F/A  G/A  [2x]


A                    D/A

You could never know what it's like.

     E/A                       A

Your blood like winter freezes just like ice.

              Bm7/A                   D/A         E

And there's a cold, lonely light that shines from you.

       F#m                        D           A         Bm/A  A

You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you-- use.

And did you think this fool could never win?

Well, look at me, I'm coming back again.

I got a taste of love in a simple way.

And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away.



               Am7       Am                     Em7

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did?

               Dm7                           FM7    G

Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid.

Am7       Am             Em7

I'm still standing after all this time.

               Dm7                           E7

Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind.

          Am         Dm7         E7

I'm still standing.  Yeah, yeah, yeah!

          Am         Dm7         E7   F/E   G/E

I'm still standing.  Yeah, yeah, yeah!


Once I never could hope to win.

You starting down the road leaving me again.

The threats you made were meant to cut me down.

And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now.




A   D/A   E/A    A    Bm7/A    D/A   E   F#m   D     A   Bm7/A
