    The original version of this song is by Charles Aznavour and is titled
    “Heir Encore.” Both music and lyrics were written in French. It dates
    from 1964. Herbert Kretzmer wrote the English lyrics for “Yesterday, When
    I Was Young.” These lyrics are set to Mr. Aznavour’s music.

    Regardless who wrote the piece, Roy owns it.

    His voice was going at this point. Still great though.

    Got to sat next to Roy for a while at Osage Casino to see, Glenn Campbell..
    He was a very nice gentleman. I loved talking to him. I will be at his
    birthday party Friday night. I love to hear this great man sing and play.
    Is there an Instrument he can’t play? Norma

  • Robert DeMartin says:

    Are you kidding me!?!?!?!?!? An older Roy Clark singing this is a true
    masterpeiece. Roy will be remembered as one of the greats of all time and
    especially for the way he sings “Yesterday”. God Bless You, Roy, for
    singing a song that will live forever. It’s okay for us to cry for a while.
    But, we should get up and do something nice. Think of someone who needs
    help. We’re getting older but life is still ahead of us. Thanks, again,
    Roy. Never forget what once was (for a while).

    “What a load of crap, and this is the only versionfound on Karaoke! No
    Eddie Arnold. No Charles Aznavout????”

  • Mark desormeau says:

    This is a song written by a man who saw people in his life that he loved
    and knew would be gone before his lifetime. It is no wonder he wrote this
    song about the gift of life and the precious moments spent wisely- often
    too lately realized after.
