A G6 Her folks they said our lives together A G6 Sure was gonna be rough A G6 They never did like Mama's homemade dress D Papa's bankbook wasn't big enough. E F#m And I was standin' on the side of the road A D Rain fallin' on my shoes E F#m Heading out for the East Coast A D E Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through, G D A Asus A Asus Tangled up in blue. [Verse 2] A G6 She was married when we first met A G6 Soon to be divorced A G6 I helped her out of a jam, I guess, D But I used a little too much force. A G6 We drove that car as far as we could A G6 Abandoned it out West A G6 Split up on a dark sad night D Both agreeing it was best. E F#m She turned around to look at me A D As I was walkin' away E F#m I heard her say over my shoulder, A D E "We'll meet again someday on the avenue," G D A Asus A Asus Tangled up in blue. [Verse 3] A G6 I had a job in the great north woods A G6 Working as a cook for a spell A G6 But I never did like it all that much D And one day the ax just fell. A G6 So I drifted down to New Orleans A G6 Where I happened to be employed A G6 Workin' for a while on a fishin' boat D Right outside of Delacroix. E F#m But all the while I was alone A D The past was close behind, E F#m I seen a lot of women A D E But she never escaped my mind, and I just grew G D A Asus A Asus Tangled up in blue. [Verse 4] A G6 She was workin' in a topless place A G6 And I stopped in for a beer, A G6 I just kept lookin' at the side of her face D In the spotlight so clear. A G6 And later on as the crowd thinned out A G6 I's just about to do the same, A G6 She was standing there in back of my chair D Said to me, "Don't I know your name?" E F#m I muttered somethin' underneath my breath, A D She studied the lines on my face. E F#m I must admit I felt a little uneasy A D E When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe, G D A Asus A Asus Tangled up in blue. [Verse 5] A G6 A G She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe A G6 "I thought you'd never say hello," she said D "You look like the silent type." A G6 Then she opened up a book of poems A G6 And handed it to me A G6 Written by an Italian poet D From the thirteenth century. E F#m And every one of them words rang true A D And glowed like burnin' coal E F#m Pourin' off of every page A D E Like it was written in my soul from me to you, G D A Asus A Asus Tangled up in blue. [Verse 6] A G6 I lived with them on Montague Street A G6 In a basement down the stairs, A G6 There was music in the cafes at night D And revolution in the air. A G6 Then he started into dealing with slaves A G6 And something inside of him died. A G6 She had to sell everything she owned D And froze up inside. E F#m And when finally the bottom fell out A D I became withdrawn, E F#m The only thing I knew how to do A D E Was to keep on keepin' on like a bird that flew, G D A Asus A Asus Tangled up in blue. [Verse 7] A G6 So now I'm goin' back again, A G6 I got to get to her somehow. A G6 All the people we used to know D They're an illusion to me now. A G6 Some are mathematicians A G6 Some are carpenter's wives. A G6 Don't know how it all got started, D I don't know what they're doin' with their lives. E F#m But me, I'm still on the road A D Headin' for another joint E F#m We always did feel the same, A D E We just saw it from a different point of view, G D A Asus A Asus Tangled up in blue.
