I'M ALIVE  ===  Jackson Browne
------------------------------
Here's the latest by Jackson Browne, off
the album of the same name.

Intro:
E       A       E       A
E       A       E       B

            E                                 A
It's been a long time since I watched these lights alone
       E                          A
I look around my life tonight and you are gone
             E                                 A
i might have done something to keep you if I'd known
E                     B
  How unhappy you'd become

           E
Well I was dreaming of you
        A
With my heart in your hands
          E
And I was following through
        C#m      B
With my beautiful plans
E       C#m  B

E             A                       E
Yeah, now I'm rolling down this canyon drive
          C#m            B
With your laughter in my head
E                       A                E
Gonna have to block it out somehow to survive
                      B      (tacet)
'cuz those dreams are dead
             E          A         E         A
But I'm alive

          E                               A
I want to go where I will never hear your name
          E                     A
I want to lose my sorrow and be free again
      E                A
And I know I've been insane
E                            B
When I think of the places I could've been

          E
But I was dreaming of you
        A
With my heart in your hands
          E
And I was following through
        C#m      B
With my beautiful plans
E       C#m   B

(solo)
E       E
                     A
Standing here by the highway side
               E
Watching these trucks blow by
               C#m
Inches from my face
      B                                 E
Yeah, thinking about the time I've wasted
(Dreaming of you)
                              A
And the pleasure we once tasted
(Dreaming of you)
                               E
Looking up and down this road
(Following through)
          C#m      B
I've been here before
(Following through)
         C#m   B
Can't be here no more
(Dreaming of you)
C#m               B
(Dreaming of you)

E             A                            E
Yeah, now I'm rolling down this California five
          C#m            B
With your laughter in my head
E                       A                E
Gonna have to block it out somehow to survive
                        B      (tacet)
'cuz those dreams are dead
             E          A         E         A
But I'm alive

E                                       A
Look at the way I believed in you and loved you all these years
E                                           A
Now you could fill a swimming pool with all my salty tears
    E                                 A
You told me what was in your heart but  baby you lied
      E                             A
And I thought that it would kill me,   but I'm alive!

singing "But I'm alive".
