[Verse 1]
C                             Cmaj7 
They sat together in the park 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
It was then he felt alone and wished that he'd gone straight
C                     G                    C
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

[Verse 2]
C                                   Cmaj7
They walked along by the old canal, a little confused, I remember well
C7                                      F
And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burning 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

[Verse 3]
C                                    Cmaj7
A saxophone someplace far off played as she was walking on by the arcade
C7                                              F
As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was waking 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

C  Cmaj7   C7  F  
(*no lyrics - harmonica solo*)
Fm  C  G  F   C  G  C
(*no lyrics - harmonica solo*)

[Verse 4]
C                              Cmaj7
He woke up, the room was bare, he didn't see her anywhere
C7                                         F
He told himself he didn't 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

[Verse 5]
C                                  Cmaj7
He hears the ticking of the clocks and walks along with a parrot that talks
C7                                               F
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailors all come in
      Fm                             C    G       F
Maybe she'll pick him out again, how long must he wait
C                   G                    C
One more time for a simple twist of fate

[Verse 6]
C                        Cmaj7
People tell me its a sin 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

C  Cmaj7   C7  F

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