Keep Picking, Dan Mooney - Portland, Oregon Yesterday When I Was Young Yester[Gm]day when I was [C7]young, the taste of life was [Fmaj7]sweet as rain upon my [Bb]tongue, I teased at life as [Em7]if it were a foolish [A7]game, the way an evening [Dm]breeze may tease a candle flame.


The thousand dreams I [Gm]dreamed, the splendid things I [C7]planned, I always built [Fmaj7]alas, on weak and shifting [Bb]sand, I lived by night and [Em7]shunned the naked light of [A7]day, and only now I [Dm]see how the years ran away.


Yester[Gm]day when I was [C7]Young, so many drinking [Fmaj7]songs were waiting to be [Bb]sung, so many wild [Gm]pleasures lay in store for [A7]me, and so much pain my [Dm]dazzled eyes refused to see. I ran so fast that [Gm]time and youth at last ran [C7]out, I never stopped to [Fmaj7]think what life was all [Bb]about, and every conver[Gm]sation I can now re[A7]call, concerned itself with [Dm]me, and nothing else at all.


Yester[Gm]day the moon was [C7]blue, and every crazy [Fmaj7]day brought something new to [Bb]do, I used my magic [Em7]age as if it were an [A7]wand, and never saw the [Dm]waste and emptiness beyond. The game of love I [Gm]played, with arrogance and [C7]pride, and every flame I [Fmaj7]lit too quickly, quickly [Bb]died, the friends I made all [Em7]seemed, some how to drift [A7]away, and only I am [Dm]left, on stage to end the play. There are so many [Gm]songs in me that won't be [A7]sung, I feel the bitter [Dm]taste, of tears upon my [G]tongue, the time has come for [Gm]me pay for [Dm]yesterday, when [A7]I [Gm]was [Dm]young [Gm]
