Chorus

Fm
I don’t know if I can say
               G#  Bbm
I Lived through everything
Fm
But I’ve walked this earth alone
     Eb 	      C#
With Barefeet broken in the snow
Fm
And my father said to me
         G#      Bbm
It never seems to be
	 Fm            D       C#     Fm 
I simple walk down an icy cold broken road

For the G# it might be better just to use G#5 (the power chord)
