A beautiful, melancholy tune sung beautifully by the wonderful Karen Carpenter. I hope my rendition does the song justice, it seems mostly right :)

 

F#       B     F#  A     F#  ^F#-^D   B
There was a man, a lonely man

E      ^C#   B     A         E            F#       G-B-A-A
Who lost his love through his indifference

F#    B      F#       A        F#   ^F#       ^D- B
A heart that cared that went unshared

E-^C#  B   A    C#-E    G   G-F#-E-D
Until it died within his silence...

 

G   ^G-^F#-^F# ^E ^E-^D^D       A  A
And solitare's the only game in town

A      ^E-^D  ^D  ^C#  ^C#     B       B        D       D
And every road that takes him takes him down

D      D   E - F#    F#  G-G   A   B - A
And by himself it's easy to pretend

E       F#-G  B      A - A
He'll never love again...

 

G    ^G-^F#  ^F#  ^E-^E   ^D   ^D    A    A
And keeping to himself he plays the game

A - ^E     ^D    ^D  ^C#  ^C#-B    B     D     D
Without her love it always ends the same

D          D       E      F#    F#-G    G      A - B - A
While life goes on around him everywhere

E       F#-G      B - A - A
He's playing solitaire...
