Yesterday When I Was Young Recorded by Roy Clark written by Herbert Kretzmer and Charles Aznavour
Seems the love I've known has always been the most destructive kind
Yes that's why now I feel so old before my time
Am D7 Yesterday when I was young G7 C The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue F#m B7 I teased at life as if it were a foolish game Em The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame
Am D7 The thousand dreams I dreamed the splendid things I planned G7 C I'd always built to last on weak and shifting sand F#m B7 I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day Em And only now I see how the years ran away
Am D7 Yesterday when I was young G7 C So many happy songs were waiting to be sung Am B7 So many wild pleasures lay in store for me Em And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see
Am D7 I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out G C I never stopped to think what life was all about Am B7 And every conversation I can now recall Em Concerned itself with me and nothing else at all
Am D7 Yesterday the moon was blue G C And every crazy day brought something new to do F#m B7 I used my magic age as if it were a wand Em And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond
Am D7 The game of love I played with arrogance and pride G C And every flame I lit too quickly quickly died F#m B7 The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away Em And only I am left on stage to end the play
Am B7 There are so many songs in me that won't be sung Em A I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue Am The time has come for me to pay Em B7 Am Em For yesterday when I was young
