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      

[Chorus 1]

F   F#   C   A       
Dm7/F   G   C   C7      

[Intro Verse]

F   G   

[Verse 5]
(as intro verse)

[Verse 6]
(as verse 5)

[Chorus 2]
(as chorus 1)

[Rubato Chorus] 

F   F#   C   A       
Dm7/F   G   F   C       

[Verse 1]

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

[Verse 2]

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

[Verse 3]

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

[Verse 4]

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

[Chorus 1]

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


[Verse 5]

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

[Chorus 2]

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
