So I guess this may be appropriate in more ways than one. But I've been trying to come to terms with the election results, and this was what came out.  (If you are reading LJ you've already seen the lyrics, but the recording is an addition)

You can listen to it here at Bandcamp--stream or download free if you like. If this doesn't work for you and you need me to put up an mp3 on my old website let me know.


Still Here
Lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2016
      C                  F  C          F                    G
I am sick at heart this morning, as I count your tantrum's cost
     C                  F  C          F                   G
The marriages you will shatter, the innocent black lives lost
 G     C              G     C              G     F                 C
But I got out of bed and I put on clothes and I showed up here to say
           F   C        F       G    C
I'm still here-- and I will not go away!

Your hatred gives me sorrow, but I'll look you in the face
If you murder me tomorrow, another will take my place
I am not alone and I'm not ashamed, and I showed up here to say
I'm still here-- and I will not go away!
             F  C         F       G    C
We're still here--and we will not go away!
             F  C         F       G    C
We're still here--and we will not go away!

We are men who crossed the border, and children raised right here
We are women who are equals; and we will not live in fear
We are red and yellow, black and brown, we are trans and bi and gay
And we're still here-- and we will not go away!
We're still here--and we will not go away!
We're still here--and we will not go away!
Though you've made our lives much harder, we’ll remember why and how
For the earth and for each other, we must stand together now;
There are more of us than there are of you and you may have won today
But we're still here-- and we will not go away!
            F    C   GC     GC        F  C         F        G   C
We're still here, –-------------still here--and we will not go away.
            F  C      G   C              G   C               F C
We're still here (in our millions) (and our millions) still here--
        F       G   C
and we will not go away.
