Intro: F
 
Verse 1:
F        Em7       A7                 Dm       C Bb
Yesterday,  all my troubles seemed so far away
       C                       F
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
    Dm  G7       Bb    F
Oh, I believe in yesterday
 
Verse 2:
F       Em7        A7             Dm         C Bb
Suddenly,  I'm not half the man I used to be
          C              F
There's a shadow hanging over me
    Dm    G7       Bb   F
Oh, yesterday came suddenly
 
Chorus:
A   A7  Dm  C  Bb          Gm6       C7       F
Why she had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say
A A7   Dm  C     Bb           Gm6      C7    F
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday
 
Verse 3:
F        Em7         A7           Dm           C Bb
Yesterday,  love was such an easy game to play
      C               F
Now I need a place to hide away
    Dm  G7       Bb    F
Oh, I believe in yesterday
 
Chorus:
A   A7  Dm  C  Bb          Gm         C       F
Why she had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say
A A7   Dm  C     Bb           Gm       C     F
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday
 
Verse 4:
F        Em7         A7           Dm           C Bb
Yesterday,  love was such an easy game to play
      C               F
Now I need a place to hide away
    Dm  G7       Bb    F
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Outro:
Dm        G7      Bb     F

Love this song, it gives me the thought of someone sitting and playing this as the sun rises, reminiscing of the times when love was easier. I dunno it just sounds sad but with something warm and happy in it

Aubrey

yeah…

moguwu

The Beatles are something that me my mom and my grandpa can all bond over they made such good music that is going to last forever

Sarina

I would suggest -2 all the chord sound spot on to the original and they are extremely easy too

Elliott James

What about E lmao that’s not an easy chord

Cody Demos

What about Bb that’s harder than Em

Noah Barbot

Yes, but honestly, this is the perfect song to learn the chord at a nice slow pace.

AAAAAAAAH

i play E different-(fist finger on the second fret, fourth string, the other three fingers go down on the fourth fret, each finger on the other three stings) hope that sorta helped :)

Me too!

Me too!

Expendonia

Just play e7 instead of e

Lana

Wait I’m so confused what does -2 mean?

Hope this helps

You transpose it down to half-steps. It just makes some chords easier to play it changes the key of it.

Anna

Yes -2 is perfect thankyou!! Much better for my voice range

moguwu

in my opinion (and with my soprano) the chords are perfect not transposed its just the way you strum is whats making it sound different

Anna

Yes it sounds good without transposing but i cant get quite high enough as I’m an alto. If i were a soprano then I’d stick to the original chords, but it’s just easier to sing at -2!

Dillon

If you play it transposed +5 it’s a lot easier in my opinion. I’m a baritone and it’s easier to sing at this pitch plus the chords are C, F, G, Am, D, etc. Also the Bm in this transposition should be played as an Em which is [4320] (idk the notation for ukulele but it’s first string, second, and so on)

Leo smith

I would recommend substituting all The A chords with A7

UKUgod

Good song Learned new Chord

sad ramen

UGH this song is just *chefs kiss*, i wish i could sing tho cause i am NOT doing it justice.

alex

i do D D U U DU for one chord and then the next two i do DD, and repeated overall it sounds like
D D U U DU DD DD
G Gbm B7

Vic

Wait! they’ve changed it…. whyyyyy?

pigeon

ok sorry weird question but after when they say yesterday you know how its like “yesterday aayyy ayyy ayyy” lol sorry i sound dumb but if yk what i mean does anyone know the chords to play for that part?

someone

yeah ik what u mean personally i dont play any chords i just play the F and then like not playing anything else yk
