I have the lyrics to Tom Paxton's "Saturday Night" but I have never heard the song. Could someone tell me how to find (or supply me with) the tune?

On Tom Paxton 6.

Not the easiest album to find. I can't help with the music unfortunately.

Thanks,everyone, for your help.I have been a long-time admirer of Tom Paxton but had never heard of or seen this "unusual" and humorous composition!

I've never heard Tom sing the whole song either, Tom, but a folkie friend of mine in Portland used to do it at open mics and parties and I loved the song.

I can remember the tune to the whole thing but I haven't tried to play it.

Maybe, Garg, but I remember the guy I learned it from playing way up the neck with what I call "incremental" chords (which, at the time, I found rather daunting, though they could easily have been pretty simple "movable chords.")
