Yesterday Chords
The song is made up of nice simple riffs
I've written riffs in bars because timing is important and i've written the beats 
at the top of the bars.
Keep playing the chord and count out the beats until it changes

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

The song is actually played in F major (capo 5) but it sounds fine without a capo

Chords:
C   : x32010
Bm7 : x20202
E7  : 020130
Am  : x02210
G   : 320033
F   : 133211
D7  : xx0212
E   : 022100
D6m : xx0201
G7  : 320001

Riff 1:
Played in the verses
  1  2  3  4   1  2  3  4
| C          | Bm7   E7   |
| Am       G | F     G*   | *See below
| C          | Am    D7   |
| F     C    |


Riff 2:
Played in the chorus
  1  2  3  4   1  2  3  4
| E     E7   | Am G  F  Am|
| D6m   G7   | C          |


*You may find the G chord after the F chord in the 4th measure in Riff 1 easier as 
a barre chord (355433)
as it only requires you to slide up 2 frets from the F barre chord

Here shows how the riffs fit in with the words:


Intro:

C (for 2 measures)

Verse 1:
[Play Riff 1 twice]
C         Bm7     E7                  Am       G  F

         G*              C

Why   she   had to go,
Am Dm6            G7        C        
I don't know, she wouldn't say.
E   E7   Am    G   F                           
I   said something wrong,

Oh, I believe in yesterday.


Chorus:
[Play Riff 2 twice]
E     E7    Am  G  F

I don't know, she wouldn't say.
E   E7   Am    G   F                           
I   said something wrong,

Now I long for yesterday.

About the artist behind Yesterday Chords:

The Beatles were a pop and rock group from Liverpool, England formed in 1960. Primarily consisting of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals), and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals) throughout their career, The Beatles are recognised for leading the mid-1960s musical "British Invasion" into the United States. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1950s rock and roll and homegrown skiffle, the group explored genres ranging from Tin Pan Alley to psychedelic rock. Their clothes, styles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. After the band broke up in 1970, all four members embarked on solo careers.

The Beatles are one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. The Beatles are the best-selling musical group in history. In the United Kingdom, The Beatles released more than 40 different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one, earning more number one albums (15) than any other group in UK chart history. This commercial success was repeated in many other countries; their record company, EMI, estimated that by 1985 they had sold over one billion records worldwide.[1] According to the Recording Industry Association of America, The Beatles have sold more albums in the United States than any other band.[2] In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Beatles number one on its list of 100 Greatest Rock & Roll Artists of All Time. According to that same magazine, The Beatles' innovative music and cultural impact helped define the 1960s, and their influence on pop culture is still evident today.
