Sunday Morning by The Velvet Under Ground
written by Lou Reed

Here is an open chord version for guitar.
I know the Album version of this song is tuned down to match
Cale's Viola but I dont know how much.
This version is for standard tuning.

Sunday Morning, The Velvet Underground

G      C
Sunday morning
G          C
Brings the dawn in
G           Em
It's just a restless feeling
Am    D
By my side
G     C
Early dawning
G      C
G             Em
It's just the wasted years
   Am     D
So close  behind
G            C
Watchout the worlds behind ya
G                  C
Theres always some one around ya
         Am                  D
who will call it's nothin at all

Sunday Maorning
And I'm falling
Iv'e got a feeling
I dont want to know.
Early dawning
Sunday morning
It's all the streets you crossed
not so long ago


(end by repeating "Sunday morning" to fade)

A few things I've added to this are nuances from live
versions of the songs
1. I like to do a little flip on the (D) chords that goes like this


2. On "Live In 1969" they shuffle (G) and (C) in the closing
refrain of "Sunday morning"

G      C       C C C G C G

The solo is a little beyond me and I couldn't tab it any way
because I'm not sure what the true tuning is.
I read about the tune down in the notes for the box set but I
don't own it. Perhaps someone could help on that note.

F       Bb      F         Bb
sunday morning, praise the dawning
F  C           Dm               G     C
   it's just a restless feeling by my side
F     Bb       F      Bb
early dawning, sunday morning
F  C             Dm           G        C
   it's just the wasted years so close behind
F          Bb
watch out, the world's behind you(*)
F              Bb                 G
there's always someone around you who will call(*)
G               C
it's nothing at all(*)
F       Bb       F       Bb
sunday  morning, and i'm falling
F  C          Dm              G       C
   I've got a feeling i don't want to know
F      Bb      F       Bb
early dawning, sunday morning
F   C            Bm                         G    C
    it's all the streets you crossed not so long ago
