                Simple Twist of Fate – Bob Dylan
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Bob Dylan 
Simple Twist of Fate (1975)
(Bob Dylan)

From: "Blood on the Tracks"

Dylan uses an open tuning on the original recording. This is what I play 
if I don't want to retune and still look for similar voicings.

C
 They sat together in the park
Cmaj7
 As the evening sky grew dark
C/Bb                                   F                    Fsus2
 She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
      Fm                     C           G/B       F         Fsus2
’Twas then he felt alone and wished that he’d gone straight
    C                 F/G        [ch]Fsus2/G[/ch] C
And watched out for a simple twist of    fate


C
 They walked along by the old canal
Cmaj7
 A little confused, I remember well
C/Bb                                     F                     
 And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin’ bright
   Fm                         C       G/B    F        Fsus2
He felt the heat of the night hit him like a frei---ght  train
C             F/G                [ch]Fsus2/G[/ch] C
Moving with a simple twist of fate


C
 A saxophone someplace far off played
Cmaj7
 As she was walkin’ on by the arcade
       C/Bb                                     F                  Fsus2
As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was wakin’ up,
              Fm                     C     G/B        F         Fsus2
She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate
       C           F/G            [ch]Fsus2/G[/ch] C
And forgot about a simple twist of fate

C
 He woke up, the room was bare
Cmaj7
 He didn’t see her anywhere
C/Bb                                        F
 He told himself he didn’t care, pushed the window open wide
        Fm                           C          G/B   F        Fsus2
Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate
C                  F/G         [ch]Fsus2/G[/ch] C
 Brought on by his simple twist of     fate


C
 He hears the ticking of the clocks
Cmaj7
 And walks along with a parrot that talks
C/Bb                                              F         
 Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailors all come in
             Fm                      C    G/B     F         Fsus2
Maybe she’ll pick him out again, how long must he wait
C                   F/G        [ch]Fsus2/G[/ch] C
One more time for a simple twist of    fate


C
 People tell me it’s a sin
Cmaj7
 To know and feel too much within
C/Bb                              F                    
 I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring
Fm                          C     G/B      F      Fsus2
She was born in spring, but I was born too late
C              F/G        [ch]Fsus2/G[/ch] C
 Blame it on a simple twist of    fate
