Sunny Goodge Street
Donovan
(as covered by Judy Collins
 on her "In My Life" alblum)

Transcription and any errors by jwblair@ix.netcom.com

Donovan's version of this song doesn't really
have a guitar in it, it's basically a jazz
backup led by a cello. Judy Collins' version
doesn't have a guitar either, but the piano
accompanyment can be approximated on guitar.

It's interesting how Donovan's version is dark,
moody and depressing, while Collins' is bright
and upbeat. I like both.

Judy Collins version
Chords (no capo)
       EADGBe
       ++++++
C      x32010
C/B    x20010
Am     x02210
Am/G   302210 (I use my little finger for the G)
F      133211 (I play as a full barre, and then
F/E    033211  lift the tip of my index finger for the E)
G      320003
Dm     x00231

You can either flatpick or fingerpick the chords.
The idea is to follow the bass run from measure to
measure. Here is how I fingerpick the opening/ending
run of the song to give the same feel as the piano:

    C      C/B    Am     Am/G
e-|-0------0------0------0-------|
B-|---1------1------1------1-----|
G-|-----0------0------2------2---|
D-|------------------------------|
A-|-3------2------0--------------|
E-|----------------------3-------|


I use the following picking pattern:

--2-------2-------|
----1-------1-----|
------T-------T---|
------------------|
--T-------T-------|


Opening run:
C  C/B  Am  Am/G, repeat several times

       C       C/B         Am    Am/G
On the firefly platform on sunny Goodge Street
F            F/E            Am        Am/G
Violent hash-smoker shook a chocolate machine
   F           F/E        Am   G  Dm  G
Involved in an eating scene.

C             C/B  Am              Am/G
Smashing into neon lights in their stillness
F              F/E         Am         Am/G
Smearing their eyes on the crazy Kali goddess
F            F/E       C      C/B       Am  Am/G
Listenin' to sounds of Mingus mellow fantastic.

 F   F/E       Am  Am/G
"My, my", they sigh,
 F   F/E       Am  G  Dm  G
"My, my", they sigh.

Am   G   Am   G   Dm   G   C
La la etc.

In dull house rooms with coloured lights swingin'
Strange music boxes sadly tinklin'
Drink in the sun shining all around you.

"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh.

La la etc.

The magician, he sparkles in satin and velvet,
You gaze at his splendour with eyes you've not used yet.
I tell you his name is Love, Love, Love.

"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh.

La la etc.
