Capo 2

G 	  	  	 f
Early one morning the sun was shinin'
G 	  	 f
I was layin' in bed.
G 	  	  	 f
Wondering if she'd changed at all
C 	  	 Am
If her hair was still red.
G 	  	  	  	 f
Her folks they said that our lives together,
G 	  	 f
Sure was gonna be rough.
G                         f
They never did like Mama's home-made dress,
C                       Am
Papa's bank book wasn't big enough.
D                         Em            c
And I was standing on the side of the road,
G                   c
Rain falling on my shoes.
D                        Em     c
Heading out for the old east coast,
G                    c
Lord knows I've paid some dues,
Getting through,
Tangled up in blue.

G                          f

She was married when we first met
G              f
Soon to be divorced
G                   f
I helped her out of a jam I guess
C                        Am
But I used a little too much force
G                           f
We drove that car as far as we could
G                 f
Abandoned it out west
G                       f
Split up on a sad dark night
C                 Am
Both agreeing it was best
D                 Em         c
She turned around to look at me
G               c
As I was walking away
D               Em            c
I heard her say over her shoulder
  g                 c
We'll meet again some day
On the avenue
              G      f
Tangled up in Blue 
G                            f

I had a job in the great north woods
G                        f
Working as a cook for a spell
G                          f
But I never did like it all that  much
C                       Am
And one day the axe just fell
G                          f
So I drifted down to New Orleans
G                            f
Where I was looking to be employed
 G                         f
Workin' for a while on a fishing boat
C                   Am
Right outside of Delacroix
D             Em          c
But all the while I was alone
G                   c
The past was close behind
D           Em       c 
I seen alot of women
G                        c
But she never escaped my mind
And I just grew
Tangled up in blue

G                         f
She was working in topless place
G                       f
And I stopped in for a beer
G                                    f
I just kept looking at the side of her face
C                  Am
In the spotlight so clear
G                              f
And later on when the crowd thinned out
G                          f
I was just about to do the same
G                               f
She was standing there in back of my chair
C                         Am             
Said to me Don't I know your name
D                     Em             c
I muttered something undernaeth my breath
G                          c
She studdied the lines on my face
D                   Em         c
I must admit I felt a little uneasy
G                        c
When she bent down to tie the laces
Of my shoe
Tangled up in blue

G                     f
She lit a burner on the stove
G               f
And offered me a pipe
G                                 f
I thought you'd never say hello she said
C                   Am
You look like the silent type
G                       f
Then open up a book of poems 
G                  f
And handed it to me
G                     f
Written by an Italian 
C                     Am
>From the thirteenth century
d                       Em        c
And every one of them words rang true
G                       c
And glowed like burning coal
D           Em        c
Pourin' off of every page
G                        c
Like it was written in my soul
>From me to you
Tangled up in blue
