A7 E7 E7/9 A7 I do re - mem - ber E7 E7/9 A A6 A7 A D6 When the sun - light had a spec - ial kind of brightness B7 Cdim B7 Bm7-5 E7 And the laughter held a lover's kind of lightness -- Fdim A7 Em7 A7 A7+5 D6 Cdim Em7 A7 Yellow days, yellow days. A7 E7 E7/9 A7 She would hold me E7 E7/9 A A6 A7 A D6 And the smile would spread a - round us so completely B7 Cdim B7 Bm7-5 E7 And the softness of a kiss would linger sweetly -- Fdim A7 Em7 A7 A7+5 D6 Fdim A7 Fdim D Yellow days, yellow days. D7 B7 Cdim B7 Cdim But then came thunder and I heard her say "goodbye" E7 A6 Through tears of wonder, Am Cdim G G/F# Now I'm alone and my heart wants to know E7/9 E7 Bm7-5 A7 Yel - low days, where'd you go? A7 E7 E7/9 A7 Life is emp - ty E7 E7/9 A A6 A7 A D6 And the sun - light seems so harsh in - stead of tender B7 Cdim B7 Bm7-5 E7 And the laughter's just an echo I re - mem - ber -- Fdim A7 Em7 A7 A7+5 D6 Fdim A7 Fdim G Edim From yellow days, yellow days, Fdim D Em7 A7+5 D Yel - low days.
