[Verse 1]
     F                             Am7
In a little while from now, if I'm not feeling any less sour
  Cm                                   D7sus4         D7
I promise myself, to treat myself, and visit a nearby tower
    Gm                        Bbm6
And climbing to the top, will throw myself off
      F                  Faug
In an effort to, make it clear to who-
     Dm                         E7
ever what it's like when you're shattered
     Am7                         Cm                   D7
Left standing in the lurch, at a church, where people saying
"My God, that's tough, she stood him up
   Bbm6                      F              Dm
No point in us remaining, we may as well go home."
   Am7         D
As I did on my own
 Gm         C#dim        F
Alone again,      naturally

[Verse 2]
To think that only yesterday, I was cheerful, bright and gay
        Cm                               D7sus4              D7
Looking forward to, who wouldn't do, the role I was about to play
       Gm                     Bbm6
But as if to knock me down, reality came around
        F                 Faug               Dm          E7
And without so much, as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
Am7                        Cm               D7
Leaving me to doubt, talk about, God in His mercy
   Gm                       Bbm6
Oh if he really does exist, why did he desert me
F             Dm      Am7        D
In my hour of need, I truly am indeed
 Gm         C#dim        F
Alone again,      naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts
D#                                Bbm6   C#dim
Broken in the world that can't be mended
Left unattended
What do we do?
           Gm   C
What do we do?

[Instrumental solo]
(Play verse chords)
    Gm         C#dim        F
...Alone again,      naturally

[Verse 3]
Looking back over the years, and whatever else that appears
I remember I cried, when my father died
      D7sus4              D7
Never wishing to hide the tears
       Gm                       Bbm6
And at sixty-five years old, my mother God rest her soul
         F                   Faug
Couldn't understand, why the only man
        Dm                  E7
She had ever-loved had been taken
Am7                          Cm              D7
Leaving her to start, with a heart, so badly broken
   Gm                             Bbm6
Despite encouragement from me, no words were ever spoken
    F                Dm     Am7                 D
And when she passed away, I cried and cried all day
 Gm         C#dim        F   D7
Alone again,      naturally
           Gm         C#dim        F
(slowing) Alone again,      naturally
