MP3 available here.

Whole page is interesting, but the MP3 is about 9/10ths of the way down the page.

PS. The computer I'm on plays MP3 and it is clear and easy to make out what he's saying. There is a 4th stanza included on the page.

Transcribed from the sound file that Peace provided a link to:

I'M STILL HERE
John Hartford

Now trains are runnin' towards each other.
Shotguns are pointed at my head.
Tornado clouds are formin' o'er the crossroads.
H-bombs are fallin' towards my bed,
But I'm still here.
I'm still here. Now, how 'bout that?
My city may be fallin'
But I'm still here

The assassination squad has got their orders.
Repossession man is on his way.
Landlady's given me her notice.
I'll get pitched out in the trash just any day,
But I'm still here.
I'm still here. Now, how 'bout that?
I may have lost my lunchbox,
But I'm still here.

Well, the moths make my shirt, my britches.
They're workin' on my hat, but I don't care.
I haven't had a meal since the fire went out,
An' all you do is stand around and stare,
But I'm still here.
I'm still here. Now, how 'bout that?
I might not hear you laughin',
But I'm still here.

I always heard the line 2 in verse 3 as "I never wore a hat, but I don't care." But that could just be me.

And the fourth verse, given by Ken Spooner here (click me)
My cigarettes are gone and so's my money
So are all my nerves and all my teeth
My hairs fallin' out I'm gettin' skinny
And all my friends are either dead or on relief
But I'm Still Here .... I'm Still Here ( how about that?)
