Yesterday's Child
Recorded by Roy Orbison
Written by Roy Orbison and Bill Dees

G Bm Em
I see the face of yesterday's child
F Am D7
Living in a state of in between
G Bm Em
Is there a place for yesterday's child
Am D7
Searching for an unforgotten dream

G Em G
Looking for rainbows at midnight
C Am D7
Hoping tomorrow will come
G Bm Em
Will time erase yesterday's child
C D7 G
What will the child become

Bm Em
I hear the voice of yesterday's child
F Am D7
Echoing my name my name my name
G Bm Em
Is there a choice for yesterday's child
Am D7
Seeking shelter from the falling rain

G Em D7 Em G
Chasing a butterfly lover
C Am D7
Making a run for the sun
G Bm Em
Who will rejoice for yesterday's child
C D7
What is the game to be won

G Em
Will you draw will you fold
G Em
Will you start playing wild
C Em Am
What is the future for yesterday's child
Will you turn to dust
C F G A7
Or go to the sea racing with destiny
C D7 E7
Oh look at me born to be yesterday's child
