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
David Cummings
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  �rainbow ����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  �����why then oh ������why can't ���I
