TAB: Stone Cold Yesterday - The Connells
Words & Music by Mike Connell

Transcribed by Tom Parker

This version is meant for one guitar.  On the album, Mike Connell (Gtr. 1)
plays straight chords, while George Huntley (Gtr. 2 & 3) provides some 
tasty fills and a nice simple solo.  I'll tab fills for Gtr. 2 later....

This song is most easily played w/ a capo on 2nd fret for Gtr. 1.  All 
tabs (except for solo) are for fingerings w/ capo. So what's written
as "A" sounds as a "B" chord, and so forth.

RIFF #1 4 times

(PRECHORUS)
Hey, get me out of this some way
I wouldn't feel so inhibited
Gotta get me out of this some way
I want to see
What it is they see

(CHORUS)
Stone cold yesterday
Changed her, it didn't change me
Don't it make you wonder, man
Stone cold yesterday
Changed her, it didn't change me
Don't it make you wonder, man

(CHORUS-OUTRO)
And I walk
And I breathe
And I try, no, it didn't change me
Don't it make you wonder, man
Stone cold yesterday
Changed her, it didn't change me
Don't it make you wonder, man

RIFF #1 2 times - end on A5 chord

-----There it is, folks!  Pretty simple.  If you're a stickler for detail,
-----you'll find that some parts are a little different from the recording,
-----but this version is close AND playable on just one guitar.  Enjoy!

- Tom

And if you just wanna play the rhythm, slap a capo on 1 and bang away. The chords are basically correct.
