Yesterday Once More

by: The Carpenters

((INTRO:)) [F-]

[            F]
When I was young
[                   Am]
I'd listen to the radio
[        Dm              Dm7]
Waitin' for my fav'rite songs
[           BbM7           Am7]
When they played I'd sing along
[              Gm7-C-C7sus pause]
It made me smile

[                 F]
Those were such happy times
[           Am]
And not so long ago
[       Dm       Dm7]
How I wondered where they'd
[  BbM7]
  gone
[A7sus  A7    Dm]
But they're back again
[            Dm7]
Just like a long lost friend
[        BbM7       Gm7     C7sus]
All the songs I loved so well.


((CHORUS:))
[C7sus  C7  F]
Eve----ry Sha-la-la-la
[      Dm]
Every Wo-o-wo-oh
[       F]
Still shines (all the oldies
[        Dm]
  but goodies)
[       F]
Every Shing-a-ling-a-ling
[               Dm]
That they're startin' to sing's
[    Gm7-C7sus]
So fine.
[C7        Dm]
When they get to the part
[            Dm+M7]
Where he's breakin' her heart
[         F            Dm6]
It can really make me cry
[            C7sus pause]
Just like before
[               FM7]
It's yesterday once more
 (shu-bee-doo-lang-lang, shu-bee-
[            C7sus]
  doo-lang-lang)


[         F]
Lookin' back on how it was
[    Am]
In years gone by
[         Dm               Dm7]
And the good times that I had
[       BbM7             Am7]
Makes today seem rather sad
[              Gm7   C7sus-C7]
So much has changed
[        F]
It was songs of love that
[        Am]
I would sing to them
[          Dm    Dm7     BbM7]
And I'd memorize each word
[A7sus  A7    Dm]
Those old melodies
[                Dm7]
Still sound so good to me
[        BbM7       Gm7     C7sus]
As they melt the years away


(Repeat CHORUS)


[C7       Dm]
All my best memories
[           Dm+M7]
Come back clearly to me
[          F           Dm6 pause]
Some can even make me cry
[            C7sus pause]
Just like before
[                     FM7]
It's yesterday once more
[                   C7sus]
(Shu-bee-doo-lang-lang)


(Repeat CHORUS 2x then Fade)
