Sunday Morning

At the request of Spilly:

This is the Velvet Underground song Sunday Morning and it's one of my favorites! I play it with all the strings downtuned, but it can be played in standard tuning and doesn't sound half bad.

* all the strings downtuned a whole-tone

1d ----- * downtuned a whole-tone (from e to d)
2A ----- * downtuned a whole-tone (from B to A)
3F ----- * downtuned a whole-tone (from G to F)
4C ----- * downtuned a whole-tone (from D to C)
5G ----- * downtuned a whole-tone (from A to G)
6D ----- * downtuned a whole-tone (from E to D)

First the Lyrics:

Sunday morning
brings the dawn in
It's just a restless feeling
by my side

Early dawning
Sunday morning
It's just the wasted years
so close behind

Watch out, the world's behind you
there's always someone around you
Who will call
it's nothing at all

Sunday morning
and I'm falling
I've got a feeling
I don't want to know

Early dawning
Sunday morning
It's all the streets you crossed
not so long ago

Watch out, the world's behind you
there's always someone around you
Who will call
it's nothing at all

Watch out, the world's behind you
there's always someone around you
Who will call
it's nothing at all

Sunday morning (4x)




note: this song has different pitch from other songs on this album.
tape speed is probably fast... so Lou's voice sounds like female.

I've heard that the Velvet Underground used to be called the Warlocks, too. that's why the Dead had to change their name.

Another connection to the boys: I read that Lou Reed, who was the mastermind of the Velvets, was influencial to Jerry. It said something about how Jerry liked lou's song Walk on the Wild Side and he wrote the music to Franklin's Tower as a homage to Walk on the Wild Side. Not sure if it's true or not, but I do remember reading it.
