    Am                        Dm
At first I was afraid, I was petrified
              G                              C
Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side
        Am                           Dm
Then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
             E
And I grew strong
               E7
And I learned how to get along
              
               Am              Dm
And so you're back from outer space
              G                                   C
I just walked in to find you here, with that sad look upon your face
               Am
I should have changed that stupid lock
               Dm
I should have made you leave your key
          E                                 E7
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me
  
           Am               Dm
Go on now, go walk out the door
           G
Just turn around now
                  C
'Coz you're not welcome anymore
 Am                              Dm
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
                   E
Did you think I'd crumble?
                   E7
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
          Am         Dm
Oh no not I, I will survive
        G                             C
For as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive
          Am
I've got all my life to live
             Dm
And I've got all my love to give
       E
I'll survive
        E7
I will survive
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)

all good EXCEPT...

the song wasn't done/made famous by Diana Ross. It was by Gloria Gaynor

Pretty sure the second Am in the verse is actually an F or Fmaj7. Otherwise looks good.
