Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Somewhere Over The Rainbow2-crd  Willie Nelson

Somewhere Over The Rainbow
This song I imagine has been done by everyone from Ella Fitzgerald and Judy Garland to Willie Nelson.
I even heard a different than normal take on it from a Hawaiian named Israel Kamakawiwo'ole that
sounds pretty cool. This is my take on it for the acoustic guitar and walking bass.
Keep up the good work gvaughn@roughstock.com

Intro (finger pick the melody) G Am7 Em D7
(Strum this song like a slow walking bass)
G ��Em Am7 D7
When all the world is a hopeless jumble
�G Em �Am7 D7
And the raindrops tumble all around
G Em Am7 �D7 G Em Am7 D7
Heaven ���������opens a magic lane
[G]                [Em]               [Am7]     [D7]When all the clouds      darken up the skyway
               [G]         [Em]            [Am7] [D7]There's a rainbow highway to be found
Em Am7 ���������������D7
Leading from your windowpane
(this part is out of time)
            [Em]                        [Bm]            To a place behind the sun
            [Am7]                        [D] [D7]            Just a step beyond the rain
G Em ��Bm ����G7 C Adim Bm G7
Some~where over the rainbow, way up high
C �Adim G Em ��Am7 D7 G D7
Theres a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
  [G]          [Em]        [Bm]            [G7]      [C] [Adim] [Bm] [E7]Some~where ���over the  ï¿½rainbow ����skies  are   ��blue
C Adim G Em Am7 ��D7 G D7
And the dreams that you �����dare to dream really do come true
                       [G]                    Someday I'll wish  upon a star
                          [Am7]            [D7] [G] [Am7] [D7]            And wake up where the clouds are far  behind me
                                      [G]              Where  troubles melt like lemon drops
Am7 Cm7 �Bm7 ���C ����D7
away above the chimney tops That�s where you'll find me
G Em �Bm G7 �C Adim Bm G7
Some~where over the rainbow, blue birds fly
  [C]            [Adim]        [G]             [Em]   [Am7] [D7] [G] [Bm7] [Am7] [D7] [G] [Bm7] [Am7] [D7] [G]Birds     fly         over the ���rainbow  ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½why then oh ������why can't ���I
