This version is right from the offical book. These chords are not exactly correct for guitar but they are
pretty much the same.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes (0:00 song time)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Pre-Intro is the violins not necessarily part of the song.

The intro is pretty tricky because the time signature changes from 4/4 to 3.4 a few times. Listen carefully
to the chords and the timing.

If you have any suggestions please leave them down below. Enjoy!  (Tab and chords arranged by oliverjakerr)

[Verse 1]

F7                         Ab/Bb   Bb7
   When it started we had high    hopes
        Bbm          Fm/Ab
Now my back's on the line
                 Cadd4/G
My back's on the ropes
F7                         Ab/Bb   Bb7
   When it started we were all    right
    Bbm           Fm/Ab
But night makes a fool
                   Cadd4/G
Of us in the day - light

   Then we were dying of frus - tra -  -  tion
        Bbm6         Fm/Ab             Cadd4/G
Saying "Lord lead me not into tempta - tion"
F7                             Bb7sus4  Bb7      Bbm6    Fm/Ab

C7add4/G
Sin, stay gone

F5    (Violin Solo)


[Chorus]

F            Ab            Bb       F5
   If you€'d only, if you'd only say yes
F              F7           Fm     Fm(maj7)
   Whether you will's any - body'€™s guess
F            Ab            Bb        F5
   God, only God knows I'm trying my best
        Db                    C7sus4
But I'm just so tired of this loneliness

F7    Fm7  Fm6  Bbm6/F  Fm   Cadd4/F

Hey!


[Verse 2]

F7                             Bb7sus4  Bb7
   So up they picked me by the big      toe
      Bbm6          Fm/Ab                 Cadd4/G
I was held from the rooftop then they let go
F7                            Bb7sus4   Bb7          Bbm6  Fm/Ab
   Dizzily screaming "Let the win - - - dows down!"
   C7add4/G       F5
As I crawl to the ground

F5    (Violin Solo)


[Chorus]

F            Ab            Bb       F5
   If you€'d only, if you'd only say yes
F              F7           Fm     Fm(maj7)
   Whether you will's any - body'€™s guess
F            Ab            Bb        F5
   God, only God knows I'm trying my best
        Db                    C7sus4
But I'm just so tired of this loneliness
