[Adam]THE RAINBOW CONNECTION
----------------------

| G | C/G | G | C/G |
(intro)
| G | Em Em/D | Am7 | C/D D |
Why are there so many songs about rainbows
| G D/F# | Em Em/D | Am7 | C/D |
And what's on the oth - er side?
| G | Em Em/D | Am7 | C/D D |
Rain - bows are visions, but on - ly ill - us - ions
| G D/F# | Em Em/D | C(9) | C(9) |
And rainbows have nothing to hide
| Cmaj7 | Cmaj7 | Cmaj7 | Cmaj7 |
So we've been told, and some choose to be - lieve it
| F#m7/B | F#m7/B | F#m7/B | F#m7/B |
I know they're wrong, wait and see
| Am7 | D7 | Bm7 | E7 |
Some - day we'll find it, the rain - bow con - nection
| Am7 | D7sus D7 | G | C/G | G | C/G |
The lovers, the dreamers, and me (repeat intro)
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it
And look what it's done so far
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing
And what do we think we might see?
| Am7 | D7 | Bm7 | E7 |
Some - day we'll find it, the rain - bow con - nection
| Am7 | D7sus D7 | G | D/F# |
The lovers, the dreamers, and me, all of us
| Em | G/D | C | G/B |
Un - der its spell, we know that it's prob - ably
| Am7 | D7 |
mag - ic
Have you been half asleep, and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm supposed to be
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
| Am7 | D7sus D7 | G | D/F# |
The lovers, the dreamers, and me, la da da
| Em | G/D | C | Dsus D | G.
dee da da doo, la la da da da dee da doo

Rainbow Connection Performed by Kermit the Frog
-----------------------------------------------

(Intro: A D)
[A]Why are there [F#m]so many [Bm]songs about [E]rainbows
   and [A]what's on the [F#m]other [D]side?
[A]Rainbows are [F#m]visions, but [Bm]only [E]illusions
and [A]rainbows have [F#m]nothing to [D]hide
S[Dmaj7]o we've been told and some choose to believe it
I[C#m7] know they're wrong, wait and see
[Bm7]Someday we'll [E]find it, the [C#m7]rainbow [F#]connection
[Bm]The lovers, the [E]dreamers and [A]me
(same chords as above)
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
What's so amazing that keeps us star-gazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
[A/G#]All of us [F#m]under its [E]spell
D D/C# E F (majestic modulation)
We know that it's probably magic
[Bb]Have you been [Gm]half asleep and [Cm]have you heard [F]voices?
[Bb]I've heard them [Gm]calling my [Eb]name
[Bb]Is this the [Gm]sweet sound that [Cm]calls the young [F]sailors?
The [Bb]voice might be [Gm]one and the [Eb]same
[Ebmaj7]I've heard it too many times to ignore it
[Dm7]It's something that I'm supposed to be
[Cm7]Someday we'll [F]find it, the [Dm7]rainbow [G]connection
[Cm7]The lovers, the [F]deamers and[Bb] me
[Bb/A]La da da [Gm]de da da [F]do
La [Eb]da da da [F]da de da [Bb]do
(Playing this in G, with a capo, may be preferable)

THE RAINBOW CONNECTION
(As sung by Kermit the Frog on The Muppet Movie Soundtrack.)
This is a simplified version in a nice acoustic key, D.
It's really in A or B, I'm not sure which.
All of the chords move 1 half step up at the key change, but I
left the end of the song in the same key to keep it simple.
(You may just want to slide up your capo at that point...)
[D]Why are there[F#m] so many
[G]Songs about [A]rainbows
[D]And what's on[F#m] the other side
[G]Rainbows are[A] visions
[D]And only illu[F#m]sions
[G]And rainbows[A] have nothing to hide
[Bm]So we've been told and some choose to believe it
[A]I know they're wrong, wait and see!
[G]Someday we'll fi[A]nd it
[A]The rainbow conn[B7]ection
[G]The lovers, the [A]dreamers, and [D]me!
Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
Look what it's done so far!
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me!
[A]All of us u[D]nder it's [A]spell
G D A (KEY CHANGE A -> A#)
We know that it's probably magic!
Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name!
Is it the sweet sound
That calls the young sailors
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm supposed to be!
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me!
[A]La da da de[D]e da da d[A]ew
[G]Da da da da [A]dee da da[D] dew

Here is a correction for rainbow_connection by the muppets. This song was
first uploaded by howell@cae.wisc.edu. The chords and lyrics are right, but
here are the changes to make it the correct key:
Change all of the D's to A's (D = A)
F#m = C#m
G = D
A = E
Bm = F#m
B7 = F#7
