Al Kooper adds upfront Mellotron string sounds to the chorus of the song. It's one of a few Lynyrd Skynyrd songs on which Bob Burns, the original founding member and drummer, did not play. Atlanta Rhythm Section's drummer Robert Nix played on the studio version. Bob Burns, however, can be heard playing on the demo version from the same session.
Metallica covered "Tuesday's Gone" on the album Garage Inc., which features special appearances from Gary Rossington, on guitar Pepper Keenan from Corrosion of Conformity, John Popper from Blues Traveler, Les Claypool from Primus, Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains, Jim Martin formerly of Faith No More, credited as Fatso.
In 1988, a cover version was recorded by country music artist Hank Williams, Jr. as the closing track on his album Wild Streak. This version was later part of a 1994 compilation titled Skynyrd Frynds, which featured several country acts performing covers of Skynyrd songs.
In 2001, a previously unreleased demo version of the song was featured as a bonus track on the reissued and expanded CD. The demo version is also available on the 2005 Chronicles CD box set.
Bluegrass versions of the song were recorded by Larry Cordle and Lonesome Standard Time on their 2004 tribute CD Lonesome Skynyrd Time.
Atlanta Rhythm Section covered the song on the 2011 album With All Due Respect on the Fuel 2000 Records label.
