Yes-ter- day,  all my trou-bles seemed so far a- way.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.  Oh,  I be - lieve in yes - ter day.
Sud - den - ly,   I'm not half the man I used to be.
There's a sha - dow hang - ing ov -er me.  Oh, yes - ter - day came sud - den -ly.
Why she had to go I don't know,  she would - n't say.
I said some - thing wrong,  now I long for yes - ter - day.
Yes - ter - day,  love was such an eas -y game to play.
Now I need a place to hide a - way.  Oh,  I be - lieve in yes - ter - day.

Ending:
I be - lieve in yes - ter - day.
