Van Morrison - Joe Harper Saturday Morning chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a great song that Van Morrison recorded in the late '60s which doesn't 
seem to get the recognition it deserves, maybe because it was never properly 
recorded and released. The 'working' version that came out on the Bang Masters 
compilation in 1990 is the only one available.
I think it is probably played with a capo on the second fret (i.e. played as if in 
G), but the chords below are in A, i.e. open-string. I can figure out the tabs for 
the intro, but I'm not sure about the chords.

         A              C#m
When ya thought I was a stranger
         F#m            
When you looked upon me
D      E        A  C#m  F#m  D E
  When I came back
         A              C#m
But to take you from disaster
         F#m        D          E       A     C#m  F#m  D E
I cannot master the four winds in your shack

       A               C#m  
In the roamin', in the gloamin'
          F#m         D     E   A   C#m  F#m  D E
You have brought and set before me
       A                 C#m
And I think that it's an omen
         F#m      D       E       A   A7
I'm just not what so many people see

         D                     A
And you shined your glory all around
         D              A
Do not disguise what we did
D                      A              F#m(?)
I asked you for half a pound and you said
E             D                 A
  'Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning kid'
E             D                 A
  'Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning kid'


And the child held a ball
In the garden with the old queen
When ya kissed the lips and heart
Another stranger, ya know what I mean

And ya walked on the streets so lonely
In your own childish way
And ya thought that you would only, ha
Do it for today

And ya shined your glory all around
Do not disguise what we did
I asked you for half a pound and you said
'Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning kid'
'Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning kid'


And just stood outside the club
And the rain came down on his head
And it he got all soakin' wet
He says 'Go for yourself'
I said, 'I know'
Show Joe, I ain't conquered yet

And I walk away from the backstreet in the rain
And I saw how many times have I died
Then we turned on outside of the bus shelter
And I jumped on and said, 'Goodbye'

And I shined my glory all around
Did not disguise what I did
Tried to keep it underground but they said
'Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning, kid'
FADES-
You gotta
Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning
Saturday morning
