I'm Still Standing: Piano Diana

My granddaughter (7-years-old) and I saw the movie Sing! Did you see it? This is the song she's most impressed with... It's one of her favorites!



I'm Still Standing

Words and Music by Elton John and Bernie Taupin

Time: 4/4 Lively Rock

Intro


  Am - Dm/A - E/A - F/A - G/A (2xs)

Verse 1
        
A                     D/A
You could never know what it's like
      E/A                        A
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
               Bm7/A                             E
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
        F#m                         D              A    Bm/A A 
You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use 

Verse 2
A     D/A
And did you think this fool could never win?
       E/A                    A
Well look at me, I'm coming back again
         Bm7/A                    E
I got a taste of love in a simple way
      F#m           D                            A           Bm7/A   A
And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade a-way 


Chorus                      
               Am7          Am                  Em/G    
Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did 
                Dm7                          Fmaj7   G
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid 
Am7          Am          Em/G
I'm still standing after all this time 
                 Dm7                         E7
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind 
          Am         Dm7        E
I'm still standing...yeah yeah yeah!
          Am         Dm7        E7    F/E - G/E
I'm still standing...yeah yeah yeah!

Verse 3
A                  D/A
Once I never could hope to win
       E/A                         A
You starting down the road leaving me again 
      Bm7/A                              E
The threats you made were meant to cut me down 
            F#m              D                 A     Bm7/A    A
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now 


Chorus                      
               Am7          Am                  Em/G    
Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did 
                Dm7                          Fmaj7   G
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid 
Am7          Am          Em/G
I'm still standing after all this time 
                 Dm7                         E7
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind 
          Am         Dm7        E
I'm still standing...yeah yeah yeah!
          Am         Dm7        E7    F/E - G/E
I'm still standing...yeah yeah yeah!

Am                               Em/G
I'm still standing better than I ever did,
               Dm7                           Fmaj7                      
lookin' like a true survivor, feelin' like a little kid.
      Am                     Em/G
And I'm still standin' after all this time
                       Dm7                                        E
pickin' up the pieces of my life without you on my mind.
                     Am     Dm7           E7
I'm still standing... yeah, yeah, yeah

Everybody Loves A Lover: Doris Day

Doris Day: Everybody Loves A Lover



Everybody Loves A Lover

Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson's famous quote, "All mankind loves a lover," Adler and Ross wrote their No. 1 hit for Doris Day in 1958. The Shirelles came out with their very successful recording in 1962.



Key: G
Time: 4/4
Songwriters: Richard Adler and Robert Allen
© Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, Charlie Deitcher Prod Inc

Intro:

There's a bass walk up that you do a few times, It's D-F#-G. Then with the right hand, you play a cool grace note first, F# to E-G, then B-D, then C-E to B-D. 

Chorus:
F# G        G# D7             G#
Everybody loves a lover
D7               G
I'm a lover, everybody loves me
                G#dim  D
Anyhow, that's how I feel
A7               D             D7        F#
Wow, I feel just like a Pollyanna
G                  G# D7               G#
I should worry, not for nothin
D7                              G   Gmaj7 G7
Everybody loves me, yes they do
       C                   G
And I love everybody
         G#dim  D7          G  F#  G
Since I fell in love with you
Who's the most popular personality
I can't help thinkin' it's no one else but me
Gee, I feel just about ten feet tall, havin' a ball
Guess ya might call me a Pollyanna
Everybody loves a lover
Everybody loves a lover
I'm a lover, everybody loves me
Anyhow, that's how I feel
Wow, I feel just like a Pollyanna
I should worry, not for nothin
Everybody loves me, yes they do
And I love everybody
Since I fell in love with
Fell in love with
Fell in love with you
The outro is the same as the Intro.
The G#dim chord will look like this: G#/FBD
