STANDING TALL

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          INTRO:   A7 - D - Bm - F - A7
 (like ½ chorus)


                   N.C.             D
       CHORUS A:   from Spring 'til Fall,
                      Bm            F#m     A
                   we really had it all.
                          A7       D
                   but it slipped away,
                          Bm            F      A7
                   like a needle in the hay.


                   G             D            A
              I.   derailed by a penny on the track,
                   G             Bm                A
                   the flaw that broke the camel's back.


                   G   D              A
             II.   all I could do was watch
                   G      Bm             A
                   as you took me down a notch.


                           A7       D
       CHORUS B:   but I'm standing tall.
                      Bm               F#m     A
                   I don't feel bad at all.
                   A7      D
                   feeling free,
                        Bm         F      A7
                   just like a refugee.


                       G                 D                   A
            III.   the one who loves the least calls all the shots.
                   G              Bm               A
                   I'm here on my knees connecting dots.


                   A           A7       D
       CHORUS C:   but I'll be standing tall,
                      Bm               F#m     A
                   I won't feel bad at all.
                   A7      D
                   feeling free,
                        Bm         F      A7
                   just like a refugee.

                   G       D           A
             IV.   I'll be traveling a lot,
                   G                   Bm                F       A
                   trying to lose this baggage that I've got.


                           A7       D
       CHORUS B:   but I'm standing tall.

                   feeling free,
                        Bm         F      A7
                   just like a refugee.
