Yesterday When I Was Young
Recorded by Roy Clark
written by Herbert Kretzmer and Charles Aznavour

intro spoken:

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
