A7 G D A7 D G D A7 D Yes - ter - day I heard the rain, whis - per - ing your name, Em7/9 Em7 G/B A7 Em7 A7 Ask - ing where you'd gone; G Cdim Em7 G B7 A7 It fell soft - ly from the clouds on the si - lent crowds, G D A7 D DM7 D7 As I wan - dered on. Cdim G G/F# B7 Cdim Em B+ Em7 Em6 Out of door - ways, black umbrellas came to pursue me, C#7 Cdim(IV) C#7 Faceless people as they passed Cdim F#m F#m+7 Edim Em7 A7 Were looking through me -- no one knew me. A7 G D A7 D G D A7 D Yes - ter - day I shut my eyes, face-up to the skies, Em7/9 Em7 G/B A7 Em7 A7 Drinkin' in the rain; G Cdim Em7 G B7 A7 But your im - age still was there, float - ing in the air, Gdim G/B A7+5 DM7 Bright - er than a flame. D7 G G/F# C#m7-5 F# F#7 Yes - ter - day I saw a cit - y, Edim Bm Bm/E E7/9 E7 Full of sha - dows, with - out pit - y, Edim D9 D DM7 D+5 G6 G5 G/B A7 A7+5 And I heard the stead - y rain whis - per - ing your name, D9 D DM7 D Whis - per - ing your name.
