Simple Twist Of Fate.
Album: At Budokan
Some verses differ in chords
but he does chop & change,
play it as it suits you.
They sat together in the park,
As the evening sky grew dark,
She looked at him, he felt a spark,
tingle to her bones,
Twas then she felt alone,
A C#m D
and wished that she'd gone straight,
Amaj7 D7 E A
And watched out for a simple twist of fate.
They walked along by the old canal,
A little confused, I remember well,
And stopped into a renovated hotel,
With a neon burning bright,
She felt the heat of the night,
Amaj7 D A
Hit her like a freight train,
D7 E A
Moving with a simple twist of fate.
Break: G6 C7 F Fm7 C Em F C F G C
A saxophone someplace far off played,
She was walking on by the arcade,
She heard the melody rise and fade,
As I was coming up,
She dropped the coin into the cup,
Of a blind man at the gate,
A E A
And forgot about a simple twist of fate.
He woke up, and she was gone,
He didn't see nothing but the dawn,
Got out of bed and put his clothes back on,
Pushed back the blind,
Found a note she'd left behind,,
But he could not concentrate,
A E A
On anything, except a simple twist of fate.
Break: Amaj7 A7 D Dm7 A Dmaj7 A E7 A
He hears the ticking of the clocks,
Walks alone through the city blocks,
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks,
Where the sailors all come in,
Maybe he'll see her once again,
How long must he wait,
A E A
Once more time for a simple twist of fate.
Break: E6 A D Dm7 A F#dim7 A D E A
People tell me it's a crime,
To remember her for too long a time,
She should have caught me in my prime,
She would have stayed with me,
Instead of going back out to be seen,
And leaving me to meditate,
A E A
Upon that simple twist of fate.
E6 A7 D Dm7 A D A D E A
