Capo
4th fret
...Touching love song about a hooker.

I think he plays it in Open E, but I've provided the song here in STANDARD 
TUNING. I think it makes everything easier,  and it sounds great. Enjoy.


Harmonica in the key of E

Capo 4

C:         x32010
Cmaj7:     x32000
C7:        x32310
F:         133211
Fm:        133111
G:         320033


[Intro]

C - Cmaj7 - C7 - F - Fm - C - G - F - C - G - C


C                                                   
They sat together in the park
Cmaj7                                                  
As the evening sky grew dark,
C7                                      F                                
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones. 
Fm                             C         G         F
twas then he felt alone and wished that hed gone straight
C                       G               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
C7                                      F  
And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin bright.
Fm                             C         G         F
He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train
C                       G               C
Moving with a simple twist of fate.


C      
A saxophone someplace far off played
Cmaj7   
As she was walkin by the arcade.
C7                                      F  
As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was wakin up,
Fm                             C         G         F
She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate
C                       G               C
And forgot about his simple twist of fate.


[Harmonica Solo]
(Same Progression)


C      
He woke up, the room was bare
Cmaj7   
He didnt see her anywhere.
C7                                      F  
He told himself he didnt care, pushed the window open wide,
Fm                             C         G         F
Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate
C                       G               C
Brought on by a simple twist of fate.


C      
He hears the ticking of the clocks
Cmaj7   
And walks along with a parrot that talks,
C7                                      F  
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailers all come in.
Fm                             C         G         F
Maybe shell pick him out again, how long must he wait
C                       G               C
Once more for a simple twist of fate.


C      
People tell me its a sin
Cmaj7   
To know and feel too much within.
C7                                      F  
I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.
Fm                             C         G         F
She was born in spring, but I was born too late
C                       G               C
Blame it on a simple twist of fate.

[Outro] 

is the same, with harmonica.

Wonderful tab! I don't think you need the G in the second to last line of each verse though.
