  Words and Music by Gilbert O` Sullivan

 Fmaj7 F6  F  Am7      Gm7  C  C7  F

F
In a little while from now,
       Am
If I'm not feeling any less sour
           Cm
I promised myself to treat myself
    Am              D7
And visit a nearby tower,
     Gm7
And climbing to the top,
           Bbm
Will throw myself off
       F                 Dm
In an effort to make it clear to who
      F                        Bm   E7
Ever what it's like when your shattered
      Am
Left standing in the lurch, at a church
Cm            D7
Where people saying,
    Gm
"My God that's tough, she stood him up!
   Bbm
No point in us remaining.
   F7
We may as well go home."
  Am           D7
As I did on my own,
  Gm    C          F
Alone again, naturally


F
To think that only yesterday,
      Am
I was cheerful, bright and gay,
          Cm
Looking forward to, but who wouldn't do,
    Am                  D7
The role I was about to play
       Gm7
But as if to knock me down,
 Bbm
Reality came around
      F                  Dm
And without so much as a mere touch,
       F           Bm  E7
Cut me into little pieces
Am
Leaving me to doubt,
           Cm           D7
Talk about God and His mercy
    Gm
For if He really does exist
    Bbm
Why did He desert me
F7
In my hour of need?
  Am         D7
I truly am indeed,
  Gm    C        F
Alone again, naturally

         Ab
It seems to me that  There are more hearts
Eb7
Broken in the world 
              Gm7
That can't be mended
C7       Ab
Left unattended
Fm         C             Gm    C7
What do we do? What do we do?

Gm     C           F
Alone again, naturally

     F
Now looking back over the years,
    Am
And what ever else that appears
           Cm
I remember I cried when my father died
Am                         D7
Never wishing to hide the tears
        Gm7
And at sixty-five years old,
   Bbm
My mother, God rest her soul,
         F                   Dm
Couldn't understand, why the only man
        F                   Bm E7
She had ever loved had been taken 
Am
Leaving her to start with a heart 
Cm         D7
So badly broken
Gm
Despite encouragement from me
    Bbm
No words were ever spoken
    F7
And when she passed away
   Am                 D7
I cried and cried all day 
Gm       C       F
Alone again, naturally
Gm       C       F
Alone again, naturally

An F. K. Tab,,,, Enjoy!!!!!!!
