                "Alone Again (Naturally)"
                      (O'Sullivan)


[Intro]

  Gbmaj7   Gb6   Bbm7   Eb7   Abm7  Db7-9  Gbmaj7  Gb6


[Verse 1]       

        Gbmaj7                 Gb6
        In a little while from now
               Bbm7
        If I'm not feeling any less sour
          Dbm
        I promise myself to treat myself
            Bbm7-5          Eb7
        And visit a nearby tower
            Abm7
        And climbing to the top
           Abm7-5
        To throw myself off
              Gb                 Gb+
        In an effort to make it clear to who-
             Gb6                         F7
        ever what it's like when you're shattered
             Bbm7
        Left standing in the lurch
              Dbm                Eb7
        At a church with people saying
            Abm7
        "My God, that's tough, she stood him up
           Abm7-5
        No point in us remaining
         Gbmaj7          Gb6
        We may as well go home"
          Bbm7         Eb7
        As I did on my own
        Abm7        Db7-9   Gbmaj7  Gb6
        Alone again, naturally


[Verse 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        Db7-9   Gb
        Alone again, naturally


[Bridge]

            A                                      E7
        It seems to me that there are more hearts broken in the world
                    G#m7-5     C#7-9
        Than can be mended
                A        D#m7-5
        Left unattended
                  C#maj7
        What do we do?
                  G#m7    C#7-9
        What do we do?


[nylon-string guitar solo, verse chords]


[Verse 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      Db7-9   Bbm7   Eb7
        Alone again naturally
        Abm7      Db7-9 Db7      Gb
        Alone again...   naturally

No, it is very confusing to mix sharp and flat chords in the same arrangement. You should make it Gb or change the flat chords such as Abm7 to sharp chords such as G#m7. the ii -V sequences are not clear this way. You may think it's totally up to the discretion of whomever is writing out the chord chart, but theoretically, sharp keys use all sharps and flat keys use all flats and they aren't mixed.

This is clearly accurate (I surmise as I'm hacking an attempt). But it seems even ultimate guitar can't figure out some of these chords. Would you (Andrew Rogers) consider writing a tab?
