This Is Me - The Greatest Showman

How to play 'This Is Me' by Keala Settle from The Greatest Showman soundtrack on the piano.

Another round of bullets hits my skin
D E F#    F#   F# F# F# D   E   F# F#


Well, fire away 'cause today
D     F# A A G     A    G G F#

I won't let the shame sink in
F#  F#  E    E    E       D   C#

We are bursting through the barricades
F#  A     B A       A        F#  F# E E D 


And reaching for the sun
D     E C#     B    A   F#


(We are warriors)
D      D  G F# F#
