Hoobastank - Tears Of Yesterday chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Tabbed by: Ryan C. (VIDE0BOX)



I couldn't find a decent chord tab for this song so I decided to figure it out and 
create one.
It may or not be 100% accurate but it's pretty damn close!


I used the acoustic version from "Is This The Day?" as a basis but it can also be used 
for the "For(N)ever" version as well.


The song is relatively easy to play since it's the same progression for most of the song 
and the use of the capo allows for non-complex chords. You just have to listen to the 
song for strum timing.


Hope you all enjoy!

[Intro]
A  C

A  C

D  F  G



[Chorus]

  A                     C
I write your name in my breath on the window

A                   C
Sit and watch as it fades away

    D           F
The painful memories

       G
Of the tears of yesterday



[Verse 1]

A <-----((start strumming this chord before the words))

                    C           A
The sky is cold and gray

                         C
Just like it was when we both went our separate ways

        D               F
And the rain won't wash away

        G
All the dirt of my mistakes




[Chorus]

     A                     C
So I write your name in my breath on the window

A                   C
Sit and watch as it fades away

    D           F
The painful memories

       G
Of the tears of yesterday



[Verse 2]

A <-----((start strumming this chord before the words))

                       C           A
The deafening sound of rain

                   C
It's not enough to drown my thoughts to ease the pain

     D                  F
So instead I'll soak it in

        G
While I stare outside again




[Extended Chorus]

      A                     C
And I write your name in my breath on the window

A                   C
Sit and watch as it fades away

    D           F
The painful memories

       G
Of the tears of yesterday

  A                 C
I try so hard but I can't seem to let go

  A                     C
I lost so much when you walked away

    D           F
The painful memories

       G
Of the tears of yesterday



[Interlude]

F  D

F  D

C  G



[Bridge]

F <-----((start strumming this chord before the words))

                   D                     F
The sun just won't seem to come out

              D
Not since you walked away

      C
Now I cannot escape

  G                 Bb
I cannot escape the rain

    A       C
The rain

A  C



[Extended Chorus]

     A                     C
So I write your name in my breath on the window

A                   C
Sit and watch as it fades away

    D           F
The painful memories

       G
Of the tears of yesterday

  A                 C
I try so hard but I can't seem to let go

  A                     C
I lost so much when you walked away

    D           F
The painful memories

       G                    A   C
Of the tears of yesterday

      A   C
Yesterday

      A   C
Yesterday


A   C
