Yesterday's People lyrics and chords. Written by Mary Flaherty. Music by Finbar Furey

[D]Words which are wasted, [A]words which are weak
[G]What do we live for and [D]what do we seek
[G]Some way to love them,and[A] some way to [D]speak
To [A]yesterday's people with[A7] yesterday's dreams
 
They've [D]lived in this world for so[A] many years
[G]Fought in the wars but [D]still long for peace
But [G]now they look back on[A] what might have[D] been
For [A]yesterday's people with[A7] yesterday's dreams
   
Once my [D]soul it would[G] rise to the [A7]sound of love [D]singing
    But the [D]sounds of my [Bm]childhood have [A]long been for[A7]gotten
    I could [D]dance without tiring from [G]morning till [D]evening
    But my old heart is [Em]wast[A]ed and my [A]body grows fee[D]ble
 
Once we were young, we too had our dreams
To climb every mountain and see everything
But now we grow older and colder it seems
We're yesterday's people with yesterday's dreams
