Alone Again Naturally chords – Gilbert O'Sullivan Vsion 6

 [Intro]
F Am Bb C F 
[Verse 1]
F Am 
In a little while from now, if I'm not feeling any less sour,
Cm D D7 
I promise myself to treat myself and visit a nearby tower,
Gm Bbm 
and climbing to the top to throw myself off,
F Dm 
in an effort to make it clear to who -
F E 
ever what it's like when you're shattered
Am Cm                        
left standing in the lurch at a church with people saying,
Gm Bbm 
"My God, that's tough, she stood him up, no point in us remaining.
F Am D 
We may as well go home." As I did on my own,
Gm C F 
alone again,       naturally.
[Verse 2]
F Am 
To think that only yesterday I was cheerful bright and gay,
Cm D D7 
looking forward - who wouldn't do ? - The role I was about to play.
Gm Bbm 
And as if to knock me down reality came around,
F Dm F E 
and without so much as a mere touch threw me into little pieces,
Am Cm                      
leaving me to doubt, talk about God in his mercy,
Gm Bbm 
who if he really does exist, why did he desert me
F Am D 
in my hour of need I truly am indeed
Gm C F 
alone again,      naturally.
[Chorus]
G# D# 
It seems to me that there are more hearts broken in the world
Bbm C G# Fm 
than can be mended,      left unattended.
C Gm C 
What do we do? What do we do?
[Verse 3]
F Am 
Looking back over the years and whatever else appears,
Cm D D7 
I remember I cried when my father died, never wishing to hide my tears.
Gm Bbm 
And at sixty-five years old, my mother, God rest her soul,
F Dm 
couldn't understand why the only man
F E 
she had ever loved had been taken.
Am Cm D 
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken,
Gm Bbm 
despite encouragement from me, no words were ever spoken.
F Am D 
When she passed away I cried and cried all day,
Gm C F D7 Gm C F 
alone again       naturally,         alone again        naturally.
