Gilbert O Sullivan – Alone Again Naturally chords ver. 2

Alone again (naturally) - Gilbert O'Sullivan

[G] In a little while from now 
If I'm [Bm] not feeling any less sour
I [Dm] promise myself to treat myself 
And [Bm] visit a nearby [E7] tower

And [Am] climbing to the top 
To [Cm] throw myself off
In an [G] effort to make it [G+] clear to whoever [G6] what it's like when you're [F#7] shattered

Left [Bm7] standing in the lurch
At a [Dm] church with people [E7] saying
"My [Am] God, that's tough, she stood him up
No [Cm] point in us remaining

We [G] may as well go [Gmaj7] home"
As [Bm7] I did on my [E7] own
Al[Am]one again, [D7]naturally

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
Alone again, naturally

It [Bb] seems to me that there are more hearts 
[F] Broken in the world than can be [Cm] mended [D7] 
Left unat[Bb]tended
What do we [Dmaj7] do?
What do we [Am7] do? [D7]

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

Alone again, Naturally [G] [E7} [Am7] [D7] X3
