written and performed by Billy Joe Shaver.



Verse 1:
     Em                           
	When the autumn leaves were fallen
                 D
	And the winter winds were callin'
                 Am                                  B 
	And the southbound geese were chasin' summertime
               Em
	I was hungry then,and slender
            D
	As well as i remember
                  Am                               B
	Fighting for a place in life i could call mine


Bridge:
              C/G                 G    
	Yesterday tomorrow was today,you dreamer
               D     B/           Em
	Yesterday tomorrow was today


Verse 2:
     Em  
	At the age of five and ten
                 D
	I put a handle on the wind
                     Am                              B 
	And learned to travel on the heels of summertime
                Em 
	Like a souped up 50 Ford
                  D
	Down the road of life i roared
               Am                          B
	Never carin' for a thing i left behind


Chorus:
              C/G                  G 
	Yesterday tomorrow was so far away
	       D                           Em 
	Yesterday i was runnin' wild and free
              C/G                 G
	Yesterday tomorrow was today young man
               D     B/           Em              
	Yesterday tomorrow was today


Verse 3:
     Em
	From New-York to L.A.
	        D
	Up the San Francisco bay
                 Am                             B 
	To the shimmerin' Paris lights and the warm Australian nights
                Em
	In the honky-tonks and bars
                 D  
	And the back seats of the cars
           Am                             B   
	I learned my lessons well and i proudly wore my scars


Chorus bis:
              C/G                  G 
	Yesterday tomorrow was a blinding thing
               D                    Em
	Yesterday tomorrow came so fast
              C/G                 G 
	Yesterday tomorrow was today old friend
               D     B/             Em    
	Yesterday tomorrow came at last


Verse 4:
     Em
	In the solitary gloom of
                  D  
	Some old lonely hotel room
                 Am                               B 
	While struggling for a way to right the wrong
             Em 
	The Savior Jesus-Christ 
         D 
	Came into my life
            Am                           B 
	The old man passed away and the young man lives today


Chorus ter:
              C/G                 G 
	Yesterday tomorrow and today he is the same
               D                      Em
	Yesterday he washed my sins away
              C/G                 G 
	Yesterday tomorrow and today are the same
               D     B/          Em
	Yesterday tomorrow is today
