Dreams of Yesterday
Recorded by Bobby Bare with Peter Oien
Written by Bobby Bare

G D7 Em Bm
I can still recall my mother standing on the porch
C G D7
Waving me goodbye into the summer sun
G D7 Em Bm
Barely seventeen and reckless guitar in my hand
C G D7
As I climbed the steps to board that Greyhound bound
For unknown lands

D7 C G
Times are changing like a song in the wind
C G D7
We can’t tell the morning as the night sets in
Bm Em
Times are changing don’t get carried away
C G D7 G
Gotta hold on to the dreams of yesterday

There’s an old man feeding pigeons
Em Bm
From a bench in central park
C G D7
Rough lines in his face tell of fairy tales
G D7
Every day he walks the same ground
Em Bm
And that’s all he needs by now
C G D7
Cause he knows he’s almost made it through somehow
And it makes him proud

Repeat #2

Em D7
Nobody knows no one can say
Em D7
Some people run some people stay
C G D7
Sometimes they shuffle back ain't the way we planned
Em G D7
But we live our lives and try the best we can

Repeat #2 x2
