"Simple Twist Of Fate (Bob Dylan Cover)" as written by and Bob Dylan....
They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
'Twas then he felt alone and wished that he'd gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

They walked the old canal
A little confused, I remember well
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 somewhat far off played
She was walkin' down by the arcade
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
One more time for a simple twist of fate

People tell you 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

    General CommentWow... I'm honestly amazed that nobody's said anything about this song yet. To tell you the truth, there isn't much else to say about it that Dylan's groupies haven't, but I really do like this cover alot more than the original.
