Guitar tabs with lyrics

YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS YOUNG
(as recorded by Roy Clark)


Intro:
----------------------F#m
It seems the love I've known...

-----------B
has always been...

---------------------E (A chord diagramEsus4Esus4) A chord diagramE MajorE
the most destructive kind.

-------------------F#m
I guess that's why now...

------------G#7
I've feel so old...

-----------C#m (A chord diagramC#m9C#m9) A chord diagramC# minorC#m
Before my time.


----------------------------------------------


VERSE:

-----------F#m---------------B
Yes - ter - day___when I was young,

---------------------Emaj7-----------------Amaj7
the taste of life was sweet as rain up-on my tongue.

-----------F#m---------------------G#7
I teased at life as if it were a fool-ish game.

----------------------C#m
The way the eve-ning breeze may tease a can-dle flame.

(continue progression from verse above throughout song)

The thousand dreams I dreamed; the splendid things I planned.
I always built, alas, on weak and shifting sand.
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day,
and only now I see how the years ran away.


Yesterday when I was young,
so many drinking songs were waiting to be sung.
So many wayward pleasures lay in store for me,
and so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see.


I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out.
I never stopped to think what life was all about,
and every conversation I can now recall,
concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all.

***********************

Yesterday the moon was blue,
and every crazy day brought something new to do.
I used my magic age as if it were a wand,
and never saw the waste and emptiness beyond.


The game of love I played with arrogance and pride,
and every flame I lit to quickly quickly die.
The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away,
and only I am left on the stage to end the play.


There are so many songs in me that won't be sung.
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue.
The time has come for me to pay for Yesterday...
When I Was Young.
