[Verse 1]
A                     G6 
Early one mornin' the sun was shinin',
A               G6 
I was layin' in bed
A                  G6 
Wond'rin' if she'd changed at all
       D               
If her hair was still red.
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.
Em                              F#m 
I must admit I felt a little uneasy
     A                    D            Em 
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,
Em                              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.

MISTAKE: Ignore what I said about the G6 chord. Just follow the diagram, given by UG, for the chord.
