Yesterday When I Was Young

Glen Campbell

Tom: Gm
verse 1 

      Gm              C 
Yesterday, when I was young 
                      F 
The taste of life was sweet 
                  Bb 
Like rain upon my tongue 
                 Gm     
I teased at life as if 
                  A 
It were a foolish game 
                   Dm 
The way an evening breeze 

would tease a candle flame 
                       Gm                     
The thousand dreams I dreamed 
                      C 
The splendid things I planned 
                   F 
I always built to last 
                     Bb 
On weak and shifting sand 
                    Gm 
I lived by night and shunned 
                   A 
The naked light of day 
               Dm 
And only now I see 

How the years have run away 

Bb C Yesterday, when I was young F There were so many songs Bb That waited to be sung Gm so many wild pleasures A that Lay in store for me And so much pain Dm My dazzled eyes refused to see Bb I ran so fast that time C And youth at last ran out F And I never stopped to think Bb What life was all about Gm And every conversation A That I can recall Dm Concerned itself with me And nothing else at all
Riff Gm C F Bb Gm A Dm verse 2 Gm C Yesterday, the moon was blue F And every crazy day Bb Brought something new to do Gm And I used my magic age A As if it were a wand Dm And never saw the waste Dm And emptiness beyond Dm Gm The game of love I played C With arrogance and pride F And every flame I lit Bb so quickly, quickly died Gm The friends I made all seemed A Somehow to drift away Dm And only I am left On stage to end the play
Bb C Yesterday when I was young F There were so many songs Bb That waited to be sung Gm so many wild pleasures A Lay in store for me And so much pain Dm My dazzled eyes refused to see Bb There are so many songs in me C That won't be sung F cause I feel the bitter taste Bb Of tears upon my tongue Gm and The time has come for me A To pay for yesterday Dm When I was young
