Yester Tomorrow Was Today-crd  Billy Joe Shaver

     [Em]   When the autumn leaves were fallen
        And the w[D]inter winds were callin'
        And the s[Am]outhbound geese were chasin' summert[B]ime
        I was h[Em]ungry then,and slender
        As w[D]ell as i remember
        Fighting f[Am]or a place in life i could call m[B]ine
        Yester[C/G]day tomorrow was tod[G]ay,you dreamer
        Yesterd[D]ay tom[B/]orrow was tod[Em]ay
Verse 2:
     [Em]   At the age of five and ten
        I put a h[D]andle on the wind
        And learned t[Am]o travel on the heels of summert[B]ime
        Like a s[Em]ouped up 50 Ford
        Down the r[D]oad of life i roared
        Never c[Am]arin' for a thing i left beh[B]ind
        Yester[C/G]day tomorrow was so f[G]ar away
        Yesterd[D]ay i was runnin' wild and fr[Em]ee
        Yester[C/G]day tomorrow was tod[G]ay young man
        Yesterd[D]ay tom[B/]orrow was tod[Em]ay
Verse 3:
     [Em]   From New-York to L.A.
        Up the S[D]an Francisco bay
        To the sh[Am]immerin' Paris lights and the w[B]arm Australian nights
        In the h[Em]onky-tonks and bars
        And the b[D]ack seats of the cars
        I l[Am]earned my lessons well and i pr[B]oudly wore my scars
Chorus bis:
        Yester[C/G]day tomorrow was a bl[G]inding thing
        Yesterd[D]ay tomorrow came so f[Em]ast
        Yester[C/G]day tomorrow was tod[G]ay old friend
        Yesterd[D]ay tom[B/]orrow came at l[Em]ast
Verse 4:
     [Em]   In the solitary gloom of
        Some old l[D]onely hotel room
        While str[Am]uggling for a way to right the wr[B]ong
        The S[Em]avior Jesus-Christ
        C[D]ame into my life
        The [Am]old man passed away and the y[B]oung man lives today
Chorus ter:
        Yester[C/G]day tomorrow and tod[G]ay he is the same
        Yesterd[D]ay he washed my sins aw[Em]ay
        Yester[C/G]day tomorrow and tod[G]ay are the same
        Yesterd[D]ay tom[B/]orrow is tod[Em]ay
