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. If you have any comments / suggestions / corrections / requests et caetera, please mail me. Be seeing you.
