[Verse 1]
G           C/G G    C/G G
 They sat toge  ther in  the park
 As the evening sky got dark
 She looked at him and he felt a spark
Tingle to his bones
'Twas then he felt alone
    G                D/F# C
And wished that he'd gone straight
    G           Am                     | G   C/G G | G   C/G G |
And watched out   for a simple twist of fate

[Verse 2]
G                         C/G  G
 They walked alone by the old canal
 A little confused, I remember well
 And stopped into a strange hotel
       C            Am
With a neon burning bright
   C                    Am
He felt the heat of the night
         G  D/F#   C
Hit him ... like a freight train
G             Am              | G   C/G G | G   C/G G |
Moving with a simple twist of fate

[Verse 3]
  G                   C/G G
A saxophone someplace far-off played
 As she was walking on by the arcade
 She heard the melody rise and fade
    C       Csus4  C
The sun was comin' up
She dropped a coin into the cup
     G         D/F#   C
Of a blind man at the gate
       G         Am                  | G   C/G G | G   C/G G |
And forgot about   a simple twist of fate

[Verse 4]
G            C/G G
 He woke up, she was gone
 He didn't see nothing but the dawn
 He got outta bed and put his clothes back on
C                Am
 Pushed back the blinds
        C                 Am
Found a note sheet left behind
            G    D/F#        C
To which he just could not relate
G            Am              | G   C/G G | G   C/G G |
 All about a simple twist of fate

[Verse 5]
G             C/G G   C/G G
 He hears the ticking of the clocks
 And walks alone through the city blocks
 Hunts her down by the waterfront docks
          C               Am
Where the sailors are all in
         C               Am
Maybe he spied her once again
         G   D/F#    C
How long ... must he wait?
G                    Am              | G   C/G G |
One more time, for a simple twist of fate

[Verse 6]
 People tell me it's a crime
 To know too much for too long a time
 She should have caught me in my prime
C                           Am
 She would have stayed with me
           C            Am
Instead of going off to sea
            G  D/F#   C
And leaving me to meditate
G          Am             | G   C/G G |
 Upon that simple twist of fate
