Songs "S"



Bob Dylan


[D] They sat together in the park.

[F#m] As the evening sky grew dark.

[D] She look at him and he felt a [D7] spark,

[G] Tingle to his bones.

'Twas [Gm] then he felt alone,

And [D] wished that [A] he'd gone [G] straight.

And [D] watched out for a [G] simple twist of [D] fate.


[D] They walked along by the old canal.

[F#m] A little confused I remember well.

[D] Stopped into a strange ho-[D7]-tel,

With the [G] neon burning bright.

He [Gm] felt the heat of the night,

[D] Hit him [A] like a [G] freight,

Train [D] moving with a [G] simple twist of [D] fate.


[D] A saxaphone someplace far off played.

As [F#m] she was walking down by the arcade.

As the [D] light burst through a beat up [D7] shade,

Where [G] he was waking up.

She dropped a [Gm] coin into the cup,

Of a [D] blind man [A] at the [G] gate.

And [D] forgot about a [G] simple twist of [D] fate.


[D] He woke up the room was bare.

[F#m] He didn't see her anywhere.

[D] He told himself he did not [D7] care,

Threw the [G] window open wide.

He felt an [Gm] emptiness inside,

To which he [D] just could [A] not re-[G]-late.

[D] Brought on by a [G] simple twist of [D] fate.


[D] He hears the ticking of the clocks.

[F#m] And walks along with a parrot that talks.

[D] Hunts her down by the waterfront [D7] docks,

Where the [G] sailors all come in.

Maybe she'll [Gm] pick him out again.

[D] How long [A] must he [G] wait?

[D] Once more for a [G] simple twist of [D] fate.


[D] People tell you it's a sin.

[F#m] To know and feel too much within.

[D] I still believe she was my [D7] twin,

[G] But I lost the ring.

[Gm] She was born in spring,

But [D] I was [A] born too [G] late.

[D] Blame it on a [G] simple twist of [D] fate.
