  Obviously Paul tuned his guitar a whole step down to sing the 
  song more comfortably. The chord shapes are unmistakeable. So 
  he did play it in the key of G (he couldn't by any means have 
  played it in the key of F!).

    


  Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
  Now it looks as though they're here to stay
  Oh, I believe in yesterday.

  Suddenly,I'm not half the man I used to be
  There's a shadow hanging over me
  Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

  Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say.
  I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

  Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.
  Now I need a place to hide away.
  Oh, I believe in yesterday.

  Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say.
  I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

  Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.
  Now I need a place to hide away.
  Oh, I believe in yesterday.
