"Sunday Morning"
=======================================
album _The Velvet Underground and Nico_
(The Velvet Underground, 1967)

written by Lou Reed/John Cale
=======================================


        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
        Sunday morning
        Sunday morning
        Sunday morning
        ...



* 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)

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

        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"
========================
album _Animal Serenade_
(Lou Reed, 2004)

Jun 24, 2003
The Wiltern, Los Angeles
========================


        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, I don't want to know

        Early dawning, wow wow wow
        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
        Sunday morning
        Sunday morning
        watch out, the world's behind you
        Watch out, the world's behind you
        watch out, the world's behind you

I think that the guitar tab for "Sundary Morning"
that I picked up from your site last year
may not be totally correct.
In the line "It's just a restless feeling"
where the bass descends F, E, and D,
I think the chords are actually F, C, Dm instead of F, Em, Dm.
On the C chord, there just happens to be an E in the root.

You say that the speed of the tape in "Sunday Morning" might be off,
but according to Victor Bockris' book
"Transformer: the Lou Reed Story,"
the song was recorded well after the rest of the album
(in the year between recording and release)
as a promotional single and Mr. Reed purposely sang it feminine
because it was a Nico song and he didn't want her on the single.

I might be wrong, and with all respect for Kevin Murphy,
but I think the descending sequence in sunday morning is neither
what was originally there, nor what he suggests.
I think it's rather {F/Am(onE)}{Dm} (downtuned {G/Bm(onF#)}{Em});
that way it descends more natural (at least on piano).
In any case, when you count the vocal line in,
it's that one, since the voice stays on the A,
while the chords descend,
and you can never have this with a C chord,
unless it's with an added 6th,
but then the notation becomes too complicated.
