A2         E          C♯m7       B
   Do not stand at my grave and weep,
A2         E        C♯m7      B/D♯ 
I am not there, no, I do not sleep.
A2         E          C♯m7       B
   Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there, no, I am alive.

Verse 1:
F
I am the thousand winds that blow,
                               E    C♯m7    B/D♯ 
I am the diamond glints on snow,
F
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
Verse 2:
F
I am the quiet morning hush,
                            E    C♯m7    B/D♯ 
I am the swift uplifting rush,
F
I am the bird in gentle flight,
I am the star that shines at night.
Coda:
Amaj7    E/G♯    C♯m    G♯m/B    Amaj7    E/G♯    C♯m    G♯m/B

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, no, I do not sleep
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, no, I am alive

 
I am the thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sun on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
 
I am the quiet morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
I am the bird in gentle flight
I am the star that shines at night
