Saturday Sun
by Nick Drake
Transcribed by Nick Gill (Number6@mindless.com)
6/8 time

Harlan L Thompson's  version (the one I've
seen nearly everywhere) isn't actually
correct.  The D7/F# chord is actually an F# diminished (XX1212), and some of the
Fs are really Dm7/F.  Pedantic, I know, but it sounds better and is more
accurate.  So, the real version goes like this.

"Lead in"	|	G	|

Intro verse 	|	C	|	G	|	Am	|	C      |
		|     F#dim	|	G	|	C	|	G      |

Verse 1		(as intro verse)

Verse 2		(as intro verse)

Verse 3		(as intro verse)

Verse 4		|	C	|	G	|	Am	|	C      |
		|     F#dim	|	G	|	C	|	C7     |

Chorus1		|	F	|	F#o	|	C	|	A      |
		|    Dm7 / F	|	G	|	C	|	C7     |

Inter-verse	|	F	|	G	|

Verse 5		(as intro verse)

Verse 6		(as verse 5)

Chorus2 	(as Chorus1)

Rubato chorus	|	F	|	F#o	|	C	|	A      |
		|    Dm7 / F	|	G	|	F	|	C      |


Verse1
Saturday sun came early one morning
In a sky so clear and blue

Verse2
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do.

Verse3
Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didn't seem much in their day

Verse4
But when I remember those people and places
They were really too good in their way

Chorus1
In their way, in their way
But Saturday sun won't come and see me today

Inter-verse

Verse5
Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again

Chorus2
And again, and again
But Saturday's sun has turned to Sunday's rain

Rubato chorus
So Sunday sat in the Saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by

As Harlan says, it's played on a piano, glockenspiel, contrebasse and voice with
not a guitar in sight.  Nevertheless, it's quite possible to give a fair
rendition of it on a single guitar.
