"I Will Survive" is a hit song first performed by American singer Gloria Gaynor, released 
in October 1978. It was written by Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris. A top-selling song after 
its initial release, it has remained a popular disco anthem, as well as being certified 
double platinum by the RIAA. The song's lyrics describe the narrator's discovery of personal 
strength following an initially devastating breakup. It received heavy airplay in 1979, 
reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the UK Singles Chart on consecutive weeks. 
The song is also frequently recalled as a symbol of female strength and as a gay anthem. The 
song received the Grammy Award for Best Disco Recording in 1980, the only year the award was 
given. It is ranked #492 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "the 500 Greatest Songs of 
All Time", and ranked at #97 on Billboard magazine's "All-Time Hot 100".

[Verse] 

Am
First I was afraid
Dm
I was petrified
G
Kept thinking I could never live
Cmaj7
Without you by my side
Am
But I spent so many nights
Asus4
Thinking how you did me wrong
Eadd11
I grew strong
E7
I learned how to get alone
Am
And so you're back
Dm
From outer space
G
I just walked in to find you here
Cmaj7
With that sad look upon your face
Am
I should have changed my stupid lock
Asus4
I should have made you leave your key
Eadd11
If I had known for just one second
E7
You’d be back to bother me


[Pre-Chorus]

Am
Go on now go
Dm
Walk out the door
G
Just turn around now
Cmaj7
Cause you're not welcome anymore
Asus4
Weren’t you the one?
Asus4
Who tried to hurt me with good bye?
Eadd11
You think I'd crumble
E7
You think I'd lay down and die


[Chorus]

Am
Oh no, not I
Dm
I will survive
G
As long as I know how to love
Cmaj7
I know I will stay alive
Asus4
I've got all my life to live
Asus4
I've got all my love to give
Eadd11
And I'll survive
E7
I will survive

[Verse]

Am
It took all the strength
Dm
I had not to fall apart
G
Kept trying hard
Cmaj7
To mend the pieces of my broken heart
Asus4
And I spent oh so many nights
Asus4
Just feeling sorry for myself
Eadd11
I used to cry
E7
Now I hold my head up high
Am
And you see me
Dm
Somebody new
G
I'm not that chained up little person
Cmaj7
Still in love with you
Asus4
And so you felt like dropping in
Asus4
And just expect me to be free
Eadd11
Now I'm saving all my loving
E7
For someone who's loving me


[Pre-chorus]

Am
Go on now go
Dm
Walk out the door
G
Just turn around now
Cmaj7
Cause you're not welcome anymore
Asus4
Weren’t you the one?
Asus4
Who tried to hurt me with good bye?
Eadd11
You think I'd crumble
E7
You think I'd lay down and die


[Chorus]

Am
Oh no, not I
Dm
I will survive

As long as I know how to love
Cmaj7
I know I will stay alive
Asus4
I've got all my life to live
Asus4
I've got all my love to give
Eadd11
And I'll survive
E7
I will survive


[Ending]

Am
Go on now go

Walk out the door

Just turn around now

Who tried to hurt me with good bye?
