"Alone Again (Naturally)"
      (O'Sullivan)

intro:  Gbmaj7   Gb6   Bbm7   Eb7   Abm7  Db7-9  Gbmaj7  Gb6

v. 1: Gbmaj7                 Gb6
In a little while from now
       Bbm7
If I'm not feeling any less sour
  Dbm
I promise myself to treat myself
    Bbm7-5          Eb7
And visit a nearby tower
    Abm7
And climbing to the top
   Abm7-5
To throw myself off
      Gb                 Gb+
In an effort to make it clear to who-
     Gb6                         F7
ever what it's like when you're shattered
     Bbm7
Left standing in the lurch
      Dbm                Eb7
At a church with people saying
    Abm7
"My God, that's tough, she stood him up
   Abm7-5
No point in us remaining
 Gbmaj7          Gb6
We may as well go home"
  Bbm7         Eb7
As I did on my own
Abm7        Db7-9   Gbmaj7  Gb6
Alone again, naturally

v. 2: To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful bright and gay
Looking forward - who wouldn't do?
The role I was about to play
And as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Threw me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about God in his mercy
Who if He really does exist
Why did He desert me
In my hour of need
I truly am indeed
Abm7        Db7-9   Gb
Alone again, naturally

bridge:     A                                      E7
It seems to me that there are more hearts broken in the world
            G#m7-5     C#7-9
Than can be mended
        A        D#m7-5
Left unattended
          C#maj7
What do we do?
          G#m7    C#7-9
What do we do?

(nylon-string guitar solo, verse chords)

v. 3: Looking back over the years
And whatever else appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide my tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldn't understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start
With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
When she passed away
I cried and cried all day

tag: Abm7      Db7-9   Bbm7   Eb7
Alone again naturally
Abm7      Db7-9 Db7      Gb
Alone again...   naturally
