This song is kind of easy, it only has five notes.  The solos are simple
licks using regular major scales.

He starts off almost scraping his strings with his pick:

Am Dm G C F B E

Am                          Dm
at first i was afraid i was petrified
G                                            C
i was thinking i could never live without you by my side
F                                               B
but then i spent so many nights just thinking how you did me wrong
i grew strong i learned how to get along


(Gloria Gaynor version the chords are Am  Dm  G  C  Fmaj7  Bm7-5  E)

At first I was afraid.
I was petrified.
I kept thinking I could never live
Without you by my side.
But then I spent so many nights
