G         B7                         Em
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away,
C       D                   G
 Now it looks as if they're here to stay;
    Em   A        G
Oh! I be-lieve in Yesterday.
         B7                      Em
Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be,
C          D              G
 There's a shadow hanging over me;
    Em     A        C      G
Oh, Yester-day came sud-den-ly.
B7      Em                D                  G
Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
B7     Em                    D               G
I said something wrong now I long for Yester-day.
          B7                     Em
Yesterday. Love was such an easy game to play.
C      D               G
 Now I need a place to hideaway:
    Em   A        C      G
Oh! I be-lieve in Yester-day.
