Eddy Arnold – Yesterday When I Was Young chords

Dm GYesterday when I was young
C Fthe taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue
Dm EI teased at life as if it were a foolish game
E7 Amthe way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame
Dm GThe thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned
C FI always built alas on weak and shifting sand
Dm E I lived by night and shunned the naked light of the day
E7 Amand only now I see how the years ran away
Dm G Yesterday when I was young
C Fso many drinking songs were waiting to be sung,
Dm Eso many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
E7 Amand so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see
Dm GI ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out
C FI never stopped to think what life was all about
Dm Eand every conversation I can now recall
E7 Am concerned itself with me and nothing else at all
Dm GYesterday the moon was blue
C Fand every crazy day brought something new to do
Dm EI used my magic age as if it were a wand
E7 Amand never saw the waste and emptiness beyond
Dm GThe game of love I played with arrogance and pride
C Fand every flame I lit too quickly quickly died
Dm EThe friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away
E7 Amand only I am left on stage to end the play
Dm GThere are so many songs in me that won't be sung
C FI feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
Dm E E7 Am The time has come for me to pay for yesterday when I was young
