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   GF#ED
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
