Simple Twist Of Fate.
Joan Baez.
Album: Diamonds & Rust.

If you've not heard this before Joan
does a good parody of Dylan on verse 4
and changes some lyrics for the better.
Transpose to A (Capo 2) my personal 
choice.

Intro: B

B
They sat together in the park,
       Bmaj7                
As the evening sky grew dark,
B7
She looked at him and he felt a spark, 
E
Tingle to his bones,
      Em7          
T'was then he felt alone,
    B                     E
And wished that he'd gone straight,
F#6                   F#7             B
And watched out for a simple twist of fate.

B                            
They walked alone by the old canal,
Bmaj7
A little confused I remember well,
B7
And then they stopped into a strange hotel, 
       E
With a neon burning bright,
            Em7
He felt the heat of the night, 
B                      E
Hit him like a freight train,
F#6           F#7             B
Moving with a simple twist of fate.

B
A saxophone someplace nearby played,
Bmaj7
As she was walking on by the arcade,
B7
As the light bust through a-beat-up shade,
      E
Where he was waking up,
              Em7           
She dropped a coin into the cup, 
     B                E
Of a blind man at the gate,
F#6                F#7             B
And forgot about a simple twist of fate.

Break: B Bmaj7 B7 E Em7 B E F#7 B

B
He woke up and room was bare,
Bmaj7
He didn't see her anywhere,
B7
He told himself he didn't care,
              E
He pushed the window open wide,
           Em7
He felt an emptiness inside, 
   B                       E
To which he just could not relate,
F#6             F#7             B
Brought on by a simple twist of fate.

B
He hears the ticking of the clocks,
Bmaj7
Small waves whisper to the rocks,
B7
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks, 
          E
Where the sailors all come in,
              Em7      
Perhaps he'll see her once again, 
B                E
How long must he wait,
F#6             F#7             B
Once more for a simple twist of fate.

B
People tell me it's a crime,
Bmaj7
To know and feel too much any one time,
B7
All it cost me, was a dime,
        E
But the bells refused to ring,
Em7         
He was born in the spring,
    B              E
But I was born too late,
F#6           F#7             B
Blame it on a simple twist of fate.

Bmaj7 B7 E Em B E F# B
