[C]I know it's true, but I'm sorry to say yesterdays a day away.
Nothing I can do to make it stay like [F]that. [C]Ain't that a fact.
[C]I know it's true, but I'm sorry to say
I just can't handle things this way.
I know it's late, but I'd like to stay a [F]while, [C]see you smile.


Bass Line:

   [F]                  [C]                                              


   [F]                  [C]                                              

   [F]                  [C]                  [G]         [C]         [G]          

[F]Will you meet me in the morning, with the [C]sun fresh on the dew?
[F]Will you meet me in the afternoon, made [C]just for me and you?
[F]Will you meet me in the evening, when the [C]nighttime starts to crawl?
[G]Will you meet me in the hall? [Am]Will you meet me on the wall?
[G]Will you meet me at all?
Verse 2:

[C]One more time, one more time.
Shaking up and down my spine.
Jump a rope or skip a line or [F]two. [C]What can I do?

[C]One more time, one more time. Color flashing neon signs.
F C (bass slide: A:|8/3|)
Advertising a friend of my distraction, latest attraction.


[F]Oh my body has been punished. [C]Lord, I think I've had enough.
[F]Oh my body has been punished [C]with too much and not enough.
[F]Oh my body has been punished [C]and my mind can no longer bluff.
[G]My mind is so unkind, [Am]my mind is so unkind.
[G]It keeps me crying all the time.

[C]I know it's true, but I'm sorry to say yesterday's a day away.
