Simple Twist of Fate  Jerry Garcia

Walk up
[D]They sat together in the park
[F#m]As the evening sky grew dark,
[D7]She looked at him and he felt a spark
[G]tingle to his bones.
[Gm]'Twas then he felt alone
[D]and wished that he'd gone
[D]And watched out for a s[G/A]imple
twist of f[D]ate.
They walked along by the old can*l
A little confused, I remember well
And stopped into a strange hotel
with a neon burnin' bright.
He felt the heat of the night
hit him like a freight train
Moving with a simple twist of fate.
A saxophone someplace far off played
As she was walkin' by the arcade.
As the light bust through a beat-up shade
where he was wakin' 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 an emptiness inside
to which he just could not relate
Brought on by a simple twist of fate.
He hears the ticking of the clocks
And 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
Once more for a simple twist of fate.
[D]People tell me it's a sin
[F#m]To know and feel too much within.
[D7]I still believe she was my twin,
[G]but I lost the ring.
[Gm]She was born in spring,
[D]but I was born
[G]too late
[D]Blame it on a s[G/A]imple
twist of [D]fate.
[D]Blame it on a s[G/A]imple
twist of [D]fate.
