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 And when finally the bottom fell out I became withdrawn, The only thing I knew how to do Was to keep on keepin' on Like a bird that flew Tangled up in blue.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

G [C/g] G (etc) 2 Simple Twist of Fate ....NOTE>>>> there are lots of versions and variations of this song frankly too many to up here soo this is the simplest one taken from the 3rd Album cut. GThey sat together in the park BmAs the evening sky grew dark, G7She looked at him and he felt a spark Ctingle tBo his Ambones. 'Twas Cthen he fBelt aAmlone and Gwished that Dhe'd gone Cstraight And Gwatched out for a Amsimple twist of Gfate They walked along by the old canal A little confused, I remember well And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin' bright. He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train Moving with a simple twist of fate. A saxophone someplace far off played As she was walkin' by the arcade. As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was wakin' up, She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate And forgot about a simple twist of fate. He woke up, the room was bare He didn't see her anywhere. He told himself he didn't care, pushed the window open wide, Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate Brought on by a simple twist of fate. He hears the ticking of the clocks And walks along with a parrot that talks, Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailers all come in. Maybe she'll pick him out again, how long must he wait Once more for a simple twist of fate. People tell me it's a sin To know and feel too much within. I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring. She was born in spring, but I was born too late Blame it on a simple twist of fate 3 Your a big girl now Bm Our conversationAm was short and sweet Bm It nearly swept meAm off-a my feet. And I'm Gback in the rain, ohC And you are on dry Gland, C You made it there someAmhow Bm Am [D7/f#] G [D/f#] You're a big girl now. Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence, He's singin' his song for me at his own expense And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh, Singin' just for you, mm-mm. I hope that you can hear, Hear me singin' through these tears. Love is so simple, to quote a phrase, You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days . Oh, I know where I can find You, oh, oh, In somebody's room. m-mm It's a price I have to pay You're a big girl all the way. Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast Oh, but what a shame that all we've shared can't last. I can change, I swear, mm-mm See what you can do, mm-mm. I can make it through, You can make it too. A change in the weather can be extreme But it ain't like changing horses in midstream I'm going out of my mind, mm-mm With a pain that stops and starts, mm-aa Like a corkscrew to my heart Ever since we've been apart. 4 Idiot Wind CmSomeone's got it in for me,D they're planting stories in the pGress CmWhoever it is I wish they'd cut it outD quick but when they will I can only Gguess. They Emsay I shot a Bmman named Gray and Amtook his wife to GItaly, EmShe inherited a Bmmillion bucks and Amwhen she died it Gcame to me. I can't Bmhelp it if I'm Clucky. People see me all the time, I guess they just can't remember how to act Their minds are filled with false ideas, images and distorted facts. And even you, yesterday you had to ask me where it was at, I couldn't believe after all these years, you didn't know me any better than that Sweet lady. GIdiot wind, Cblowing every time you move your Gmouth CBlowing down the backroads headin' D7south. GIdiot wind, Cblowing every time you move your Gteeth, You're an Cidiot, babe. It's a D7wonder that you still know how to Gbreathe. I ran into the fortune teller, she said beware 'cause some lightning might strike. I haven't known about peace and quiet now for so long I don't even remember what it's like. There's a lone soldier on the cross, smoke pourin' out of a boxcar door, He didn't know it, he never thought it could be done, but at the final shot he won the war After losin' every battle. I woke up on the roadside, daydreamin' 'bout the way things really are Visions of your smokin' shoot through my head and are makin' me see stars. You hurt the ones that I love best and cover up the truth with lies. One day you'll be in the grave, flies buzzin' around your eyes, Blood on your saddle. Idiot wind, blowing through the flowers on your tomb, Blowing through the curtains in your room. Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth, You're an idiot, babe. It's a wonder that you still can even breathe. It was gravity which pulled us down and destiny which broke us apart You tamed the lion in my cage but it wasn't enough to change my heart. Now everything's a little upside down, as a matter of fact the wheels have stopped, What's good is bad, what's bad is good, you'll find out when you reach the top You're on the bottom. I noticed at the ceremony, that your corrupt ways had finally made you blind I can't recall your face anymore, your mouth has changed and your eyes don't look into mine. The priest wore black on the seventh day and sat stone-faced while the building burned. I waited for you on the running boards, near the cypress trees, while the springtime turned Slowly into autumn. Idiot wind, blowing like a circle around my skull, From the Grand Coulee Dam to the Capitol. Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth, You're an idiot, babe. It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe. I can't feel you anymore, I can't even touch the clothes you wear Every time I come into your door, you leave me standing in the middle of the air.. Down the highway, down the tracks, down the road to ecstasy, I followed you beneath the stars, hounded by your memory And all your ragin' glory. I been double-crossed now for the very last time and I think I finally see, I kissed goodbye the howling beast on the borderline which separated you from me. You'll never know the hurt I suffered nor the pain I rise above, And I'll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love, And it makes me feel so sorry. Idiot wind, blowing through the buttons of our coats, Blowing through the letters that we wrote. Idiot wind, blowing through the dust upon our shelves, We're idiots, babe. It's a wonder we can even feed ourselves. 5 Your Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go Chords: [f#] 222222

Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin', Yer gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to. I'll look for you in old Honolulu, San Francisco, Ashtabula, Yer gonna have to leave me now, I know. But I'll see you in the sky above, In the tall grass, in the ones I love, You're gonna make me lonesome when you go. 6 Meet Me In The Morning Intro and interlude (more or less)

Version 1 Chords: E 054000 (or 054300, which simplifies the slide to A) A 020100 or 020120 B(ii) 042000 (or 042300) The Efestival was over, the Aboys were all plannin' for a Efall, A E The Ecabaret was quiet exAcept for the drillin' in theE wall - A E The Acurfew had been Elifted and the Bgamblin' wheel shut Edown, AAnyone with Eany sense had Balready left town. E [B(ii)] A E He was standin' in the doorway looking' like the Jack of Hearts. He moved across the mirrored room, "Set it up for everyone," he said, Then everyone commenced to do what they were doin' before he turned their heads. Then he walked up to a stranger and he asked him with a grin, "Could you kindly tell me, friend, what time the show begins?" Then he moved into the corner, face down like the Jack of Hearts. Backstage the girls were playin' five-card stud by the stairs, Lily had two queens, she was hopin' for a third to match her pair. Outside the streets were fillin' up, the window was open wide, A gentle breeze was blowin', you could feel it from inside. Lily called another bet and drew up the Jack of Hearts. Big Jim was no one's fool, he owned the town's only diamond mine, He made his usual entrance looking' so dandy and so fine. With his bodyguards and silver cane and every hair in place, He took whatever he wanted to and he laid it all to waste. But his bodyguards and silver cane were no match for the Jack of Hearts. Rosemary combed her hair and took a carriage into town, She slipped in through the side door looking' like a queen without a crown. She fluttered her false eyelashes and whispered in his ear, "Sorry, darlin', that I'm late," but he didn't seem to hear. He was starin' into space over at the Jack of Hearts . "I know I've seen that face before," Big Jim was thinkin' to himself, "Maybe down in Mexico or a picture up on somebody's shelf." But then the crowd began to stamp their feet and the house lights did dim And in the darkness of the room there was only Jim and him, Starin' at the butterfly who just drew the Jack of Hearts. Lily was a princess, she was fair-skinned and precious as a child, She did whatever she had to do, she had that certain flash every time she smiled. She'd come away from a broken home, had lots of strange affairs With men in every walk of life which took her everywhere. But she'd never met anyone quite like the Jack of Hearts. The hangin' judge came in unnoticed and was being wined and dined, The drillin' in the wall kept up but no one seemed to pay it any mind. It was known all around that Lily had Jim's ring And nothing would ever come between Lily and the king. No, nothin' ever would except maybe the Jack of Hearts. Rosemary started drinkin' hard and seein' her reflection in the knife, She was tired of the attention, tired of playin' the role of Big Jim's wife. She had done a lot of bad things, even once tried suicide, Was looking' to do just one good deed before she died. She was gazin' to the future, riding on the Jack of Hearts. Lily washed her face, took her dress off and buried it away. "Has your luck run out?" she laughed at him, "Well, I guess you must have known it would someday. Be careful not to touch the wall, there's a brand-new coat of paint, I'm glad to see you're still alive, you're looking' like a saint." Down the hallway footsteps were comin' for the Jack of Hearts. The backstage manager was pacing all around by his chair. "There's something funny going on," he said, "I can just feel it in the air." He went to get the hangin' judge, but the hangin' judge was drunk, As the leading actor hurried by in the costume of a monk. There was no actor anywhere better than the Jack of Hearts. Lily's arms were locked around the man that she dearly loved to touch, She forgot all about the man she couldn't stand who hounded her so much. "I've missed you so," she said to him, and he felt she was sincere, But just beyond the door he felt jealousy and fear. Just another night in the life of the Jack of Hearts. No one knew the circumstance but they say that it happened pretty quick, The door to the dressing room burst open and a cold revolver clicked. And Big Jim was standin' there, ya couldn't say surprised, Rosemary right beside him, steady in her eyes. She was with Big Jim but she was leanin' to the Jack of Hearts. Two doors down the boys finally made it through the wall And cleaned out the bank safe, It's said they got off quite a haul In the darkness by the riverbed they waited on the ground For one more member who had business back in town. But they couldn't go no further without the Jack of Hearts. The next day was hangin' day, the sky was overcast and black, Big Jim lay covered up, killed by a penknife in the back. And Rosemary on the gallows, she didn't even blink, The hangin' judge was sober, he hadn't had a drink. The only person on the scene missin' was the Jack of Hearts. The cabaret was empty now, a sign said, "Closed for repair," Lily had already taken all of the dye out of her hair. She was thinkin' 'bout her father, who she very rarely saw, Thinkin' 'bout Rosemary and thinkin' about the law. But most of all she was thinkin' 'bout the Jack of Hearts. DThe festival was over, the Gboys were all plannin' for a Dfall, The cabaret was quiet exGcept for the drillin' in the Dwall - The Gcurfew had been Dlifted and the Agamblin' wheel shut Ddown, GAnyone with Dany sense had Aalready left town. He was Dstandin' in the A/Cdoorway Glooking' like the Jack of Hearts D 8 if you see her say hello At the C/g in the last line the 2nd guitar plays a very pronounced b, which gives the a strong Cmaj7'ish flavor.

We had... We had a falling-out, like lovers often will And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill And though our separation, it pierced me to the heart She still lives inside of me, we've never been apart. If you get close to her, kiss her once for me I always have respected her for doin' what she did and gettin' free Oh, whatever makes her happy, I won't stand in the way. Oh, the bitter taste still lingers on, from that night I tried to make her stay. I see a lot of people as I make the rounds And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town And I've never gotten used to it, I've just learned to turn it off Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft. Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast If she's passin' back this way, I'm not that hard to find Tell her she can look me up if she's got the time. or i perfer It's hard to tell if he really changes to C in lines 1, 2 and 4, or to D in the first line. GIf you see her Csay helGlo, she might bDe in North SaiGgon C G G C G D Dsus4sus2 D She left here in a hurry; I don't know what she was on You might Csay that I'm in Gdisarray and for me time's standing Cstill Oh I've Gnever gotten Cover Gher, I don't Amthink I ever Gwill A bright light from me I saw, a shattering of souls Just one of them reckless situations, which nobody controls Well, the menagerie of life rolls by, right before my eyes [And we?] all do the best we can, which should come as no surprise If you're making love to her, watch it from the rear You'll never know when I'll be back, or liable to appear For it's natural to dream of peace as it is for rules to break And right now I've got not much to lose, so you'd better stay awake Sundown, silver moon, hitting on the days My head can't toler...understand no more, what my heart don't tolerate Well I know she'll be back someday, of that there is no doubt And when that moment comes Lord, give me the strength to keep her out 9 Shelter From the Storm F'Twas in another Clifetime, Bone of toil and Fblood When Fblackness was a Cvirtue and the Broad was full of Fmud I Fcame in from the Cwilderness, a Bcreature void of Fform. "Come Fin," she said, "I'll Cgive you Bshelter from the Fstorm And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured I'll always do my best for her, on that I give my word In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved Everything up to that point had been left unresolved. Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." I was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail, Poisoned in the bushes an' blown out on the trail, Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." Suddenly I turned around and she was standin' there With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair. She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." Now there's a wall between us, somethin' there's been lost I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed. Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." Well, the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount But nothing really matters much, it's doom alone that counts And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." I've heard newborn babies wailin' like a mournin' dove And old men with broken teeth stranded without love. Do I understand your question, man, is it hopeless and forlorn? "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes I bargained for salvation an' they gave me a lethal dose. I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." Well, I'm livin' in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine. If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born. "Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm." or D'Twas in another life time, GOne of toil and blooDd. When blackness was a virtue And the rGoad was full of mud. DI came in from the wilderness, A crGeature void of form. "Come Din" she said, "I'll give you, GShelter from the storm." 10 Buckets of Rain >>>a very unexpectable The notes within parentheses in the tab below aren't really pull-offs, they are just the removal of the first finger from the third string in the chord change (which is as to a pull-off as you can get). The easiest way to play it is to disregard them, and just the chords as indicated above the systems. The song can be strummed to the chords that are implied in the tab. Since the 5th string never played in the finger-picked version, there is no way to decide whether an Esus4 an A9 is implied. I've made a suggestion, but do as you wish.
