Yearnin’ For Yesterday
(Marriner/Diteodoro/Sobb/Chaffey – SOCAN 2013)

Moon is risin’ high and I lay alone
Another sinner’s cry and I try to atone
Haunted by the by and by, I cry, I moan

Oh oh, I was wrong, wrong, wrong
Oh oh, now she’s gone, gone, gone

She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
I got a debt that I can’t repay
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday

She gave all her love and in return, I gave pain
She did nothing wrong but she paid, just the same
Her only crime was loving a man with no shame

Oh oh, I was wrong, wrong, wrong
Oh oh, now she’s gone, gone, gone

She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
I got a debt that I can’t repay
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday

Oh oh, if I could live once more
Oh oh, I’d never let her go
Oh oh, but I was wrong, wrong, wrong
Oh oh, now she’s gone, gone, gone

She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
I got a debt that I can’t repay
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday

She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
I got a debt that I can’t repay
She got me yearnin’ for yesterday
