		"Alone Again (Naturally)"

intro:  F#maj7   F#6   Bbm7   Eb7   Abm7  C#7-9  F#maj7  F#6

v. 1:	F#maj7                 F#6
	In a little while from now
	If I'm not feeling any less sour
	I promise myself to treat myself
	    Bbm7-5          Eb7
	And visit a nearby tower
	And climbing to the top
	To throw myself off
	      F#                 F#+
	In an effort to make it clear to who-
	     F#6                         F7
	ever what it's like when you're shattered
	Left standing in the lurch
	      C#m                Eb7
	At a church with people saying
	"My God, that's tough, she stood him up
	No point in us remaining
	 F#maj7          F#6
	We may as well go home"
	  Bbm7         Eb7
	As I did on my own
	Abm7        C#7-9   F#maj7  F#6
	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        C#7-9   F#
	Alone again, naturally

bridge:	    A                                      E7
	It seems to me that there are more hearts broken in the world
	            Abm7-5     C#7-9
	Than can be mended
	        A        Ebm7-5
	Left unattended
	What do we do?
	          Abm7    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      C#7-9   Bbm7   Eb7
	Alone again naturally
	Abm7      C#7-9 C#7      F#
	Alone again...   naturally
