"Tomorrow's Yesterday"

by David Cooper
(Conway S.C. USA)

I was cleaning out my closet
Throw'n some old clothes in the trash
Go'n through an ole shirt pocket
Came across a photograph
Color Kodak of my dad
Remember the day it was made
I had scribbled on the back
Words I can still hear daddy say

Chorus 1 & 2

Yesterday's gone
Tomorrow's out of sight
All we have is today
Make sure you live it right
Don't waste a single minute
Cause that's how life slips away
Soon yesterday's tomorrow
Will be tomorrow's yesterday

Took that picture of my dad
We were in the field bailing hay
Can't tell by the photograph
But it was hot that July day
Bailed from morning till dark
Could've wrung the sweat from my shirt
As we hauled the hay to the barn
Daddy sang this ditty while we worked

Bridge

Stopped by to see my dad today
Spent some time with him alone
Took my guitar out of the case
Stood by his grave n sang this song

Chorus 3

Yesterday's gone
Tomorrow's out of sight
All we have is today
Make'n sure I live it right
Won't waste a single minute
Cause that's how life slips away
Soon yesterday's tomorrow
Will be tomorrow's yesterday
