Intro

Verse 1

[Play Riff 1 twice]

Yesterday, All my troubles seemed so far away,

Now it looks as though they're here to stay,

Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be

There's a shadow hanging over me,

Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Chorus

[Play Riff 2 twice]

Why she had to go,

I don't know, she wouldn't say.

I said something wrong,

Now I long for yesterday.

Verse 2

[Play Riff 1 once]

Yesterday, Love was such an easy game to play,

Now I need a place to hide away,

Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Chorus

[Play Riff 2 twice]

Why she had to go,

I don't know, she wouldn't say.

I said something wrong,

Now I long for yesterday.

Verse 3

[Play Riff 1 once + last two measures repeated]

Yesterday, Love was such an easy game to play,

Now I need a place to hide away,

Oh, I believe in yesterday.
