OVER THE RAINBOW  Eva Cassidy

Som[G]eday I'll wish upon a star[C]
D G >> Em C D7sus D7
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where[G] troubles melt like lemon drops[F#7]
away above the chimney tops, that's [Bm]where [D+]you'll [Am7]find [D7]me
(break, then repeat second section)
G >> Em Bm G7(III) C Cm(III) G G7 >> C
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
C Cm(III) G >> Em Am7 D7sus D7 G
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true
If happy little bluebirds fly[C]
D7 C5add9 Ab(IV) G(III)
above the rainbow, why oh why can't I?

Notes:
This is from the CD "The Other Side" by Chuck Brown and
Eva Cassidy (Liaison Records cbd02263). It's the best cover of
"Over the Rainbow" I've ever heard. Her version has a lovely,
melancholy jazz/blues feel, played on a classical guitar with
a legato fingerpicking style.
Roman numerals in parentheses indicated the fret for a barred chord.
The ">>" notation means to "walk" from the first chord to the second:
G >> Em G7 >> C
E---3--------0--|---1--------0---
B---0--------0--|---0--1--3--1---
G---0--------0--|---0--------0---
D---0--------2--|---0--------2---
A---2--------2--|---2--0--2--3---
E---3---2----0--|---3------------
