MI   sol#   LA   la    MI

MI
In a little while from now
sol#
If I'm not feeling any less sour
si
I promise myself to treat myself
dis DO#7
And visit a nearby tower

fa#
And climbing to the top
RE7
To throw myself off
            MI                 DO+5
In an effort to make it clear to who-
        do#                        RE#7
ever what it's like when you're shattered
sol#
Left standing in the lurch
         si                       DO#7
At a church with people saying
fa#
"My God, that's tough, she stood him up
la
No point in us remaining
MI                          do#
We may as well go home"
sol#              DO#7
As I did on my own
fa#   la   SI7           MI
Alone again, naturally



To think that only yesterday
sol#
I was cheerful bright and gay
si
Looking forward - who wouldn't do?
dis DO#7
The role I was about to play
fa#
but as if to knock me down
RE7
Reality came around
MI                                  DO+5
And without so much as a mere touch
do#                RE#7
cut me into little pieces
sol#
Leaving me to doubt
si                          DO#7
Talk about God in his mercy
fa#
Who if He really does exist
la
Why did He desert me
MI                 do#
In my hour of need
sol#           DO#7
I truly am indeed


fa#   la   SI7        MI
Alone again, naturally


SOL                                      RE
It seems to me that there are more hearts

broken in the world
la                    SI
Than can be mended
              SOL
Left unattended
                   SI
What do we do?
                     SI7
What do we do?

MI   sol#   LA   la   MI

MI
Looking back over the years
sol#
And whatever else appears
si
I remember I cried when my father died
dis DO#7
Never wishing to hide my tears
fa#
And at sixty-five years old
RE7
My mother, God rest her soul
MI                                   DO+5
Couldn't understand why the only man
do#                             RE7
She had ever loved had been taken
sol#7
Leaving her to start
si                      DO#7
With a heart so badly broken
fa#
Despite encouragement from me
la
No words were ever spoken
MI                   do#
When she passed away
sol#                    DO#7
I cried and cried all day


fa#    la   SI7       MI       do#
Alone again naturally
fa#   la    SI7            MI
Alone again... naturally
