Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
-6  -6   6   -5   5      -4     -5  5   5 
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay

Oh I believe in yesterday
-4  4 4    5  -5   6   -6  -7  7  -7  -6 -6 
Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be
  -6   -6  6 -5   5 -4   -5 5 5 
There’s a shadow hanging over me
-4  4  5 -4   -3   4  5 5 
Oh yesterday came suddenly

 5   5   -6 -7 7 -7   -6   -7   
Why she had to go I don’t know 
-6   6  -6    5
She wouldn’t say
5  -4   -6  -7     7   
I said something wrong

Oh I believe in yesterday
