Simple Twist of Fate  Bob Dylan

Th[D]ey sat together in the park, w[F#m]hile the evening sky grew dark
[F#m-5]She looked at him & he felt a spark t[G]ingle through his bones
It was [Gm]then he felt alone, and w[D]ished that h[A]e'd gone str[G]aight
And wa[D]tched out for a S[G]imple [A]Twist of [D]Fate

They walked along by the old canal, a little confused, I remember well
Stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burning bright
He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train
Moving with a Simple Twist of Fate

A saxaphone someplace faroff played as she was walking by the arcade
As the light bust thru a beat-up shade where he was waking up
She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate
And forgot about a Simple Twist of Fate

He woke up, the room was bare, he didn't see her anywhere
He told himself he didn't care, pushed the window open wide
Felt that emptiness inside, to which he just could not relate
Brought on by a Simple Twist of Fate

He hears the ticking of the clock, walks along with a parrot that talks
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailors all come in
Maybe she'll pick him out again, how long must he wait
One more time for a Simple Twist of Fate

People tell me it's a sin to know and feel too much within
I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring
She was born in spring, but I was born too late
Blame it on Simple Twist of Fate
