[Intro]

C  Csus4  C Csus4


[Verse 1]

C                     A#
Early one morning the sun was shinin'
C                A#
He was layin' in bed
C                  A#
Wond'rin' if she'd changed at all
       F
If her hair was still red
    C                     A#
Her folks they said their lives together
C                 A#
Sure was gonna be rough
C                          A#
They never did like Mama's homemade dress,
       F
Papa's bankbook wasn't big enough
    G                      Am
And he was standin' at the side of the road
C                   F
Rain fallin' on his shoes
G                   Am
Heading out for the old East Coast
     C                  F             G
Lord knows he paid some dues, gettin' through
A#      F     C     Csus4 C Csus4  C Csus4 C Csus4
Tangled up in blue.


[Verse 2]

C                    A#
She was married when they first met
C            A#
Soon to be divorced
C                      A#
He helped her out of a jam I guess
       F
But he used a little too much force
       C                 A#
And he drove that car as far as he could
C                A#
Abandoned it out west
C                      A#
And they split up on a dark sad night
      F
Both agreeing it was best
    G                    Am
And she turned around to look at him
   C               F
As he was walkin' away
G                        Am
And she said "This can't be the end
      C               F              G
We'll meet again some day, on the avenue,
A#      F     C     Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4
Tangled up in blue."


[Verse 3]

C                   A#
He had a job in the great north woods
C                       A#
Working as a cook for a spell
       C                 A#
But he never did like it all that much
        F
And one day the axe just fell
      C               A#
So he drifted down to New Orleans
             C                      A#
Where he was lucky enough to be employed
C                        A#
Workin' for a-while on a fishin' boat
      F
Right outside of Delacroix
    G                    Am
But all the while he was alone
    C                F
The past was close behind
G                Am
He seen a lot of women
        C                 F                 G
But she never escaped his mind and he just grew
A#      F     C     Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4
Tangled up in blue.


[Verse 4]

C                    A#
She was workin' in a topless place
C                      A#
And I stopped in for a beer
  C                        A#
I just kept lookin' at the side of her face
     F
In a spotlight so clear
    C               A#
And later on as the crowd thinned out
C                   A#
I's about to do the same
        C                 A#
She was standing there in back of my chair
        F
Sayin' "Tell me what's your name?"
  G                       Am
I muttered something underneath my breath
C                           F
She studied the lines on my face
  G                   Am
I must admit I felt a little uneasy
         C                    F           G
When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoes
A#      F     C     Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4
Tangled up in blue.


[Verse 5]

C                A#
She lit a burner on the stove
    C            A#
And offered me a pipe
C                          A#
"Thought you'd never say hello", she said
     F
"You look like the quiet type"
C                   A#
And she opened up a book of poems
C                A#
And handed it to me
C             A#
Written by an Italian poet
         F
From the thirteenth century
    G                 Am
And every one of them words rang true
    C                   F
And glowed like burning coal
G              Am
Pouring off of every page
            C             F               G
Like it was written in my soul from me to you
A#      F     C     Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4
Tangled up in blue.


[Verse 6]

C                  A#
He was always in a hurry
C               A#
Too busy or too stoned
C                  A#
And everything she ever planned
     F
Just had to be postponed
C                            A#
She thought they were successful
C                    A#
He thought they were blessed
C                Bmaj7
With objects and material things
    F
But I never was impressed
    G                Am
And when it all came crashing down
C            F
I became withdrawn
G                     Am
The only thing I knew how to do
       C               F                   G
Was to keep on keeping on like a bird that flew
A#      F     C     Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4
Tangled up in blue.


[Verse 7]

C                A#
So now I'm going back again
C                     A#
Got to get to her somehow
C                 A#
All the people we used to know
           F
They're an illusion to me now
C               A#
Some are mathematicians
C                    A#
Some are carpenters' wives
C                         A#
Don't know how it all got started
      F
Don't know what they're doin' with their lives
    G             Am
But me, I'm still on the road
C                   F
Heading for another joint
G             Am
We always did feel the same
        C                    F        G
We just saw from a different point of view
A#      F     C     Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4 C Csus4
Tangled up in blue.
