(Somewhere Over the Rainbow)
C C Em Em F F C C
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
F F C C G G Am Am F F
And the dreams that you dream of once in a lullaby
C C Em Em F F C C
Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly
F F C C G G Am Am F F
And the dreams that you dream of, dreams really do come true
C C G G Am Am F F
Someday I'll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind me
C C
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
G G Am Am F F
High above the chimney tops is where you'll find me
C C Em Em F F C C
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
F F C C G G Am Am F F
And the dreams that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?

(What a Wonderful World)
C C Em Em F F C C
Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
F F C C E7 E7 Am Am
I'll watch then bloom for me and you
F F G G Am Am F F
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
C C Em Em F F C C F F C C
Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white and the brightness of day
E7 E7 Am Am F F G G C C F F C C
I like the dark and I think to myself, what a wonderful world
G G C C
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
G G C C
are also on the faces of people passing by
F F C C F F C C
I see friends shaking hands saying, ??How do you do?
F F C C Dm7 Dm7 G G
They're really saying, I, I love you
C C Em Em F F C C
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
F F C C E7 E7 Am Am
They'll learn much more than we'll know
F F G G Am Am F F
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

(Somewhere Over the Rainbow)
C C G G Am Am F F
Someday I'll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind me
C C
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
G G Am Am F F
High above the chimney tops is where you'll find me
C C Em Em F F C C
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
F F C C G G Am Am F F
And the dreams that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?

Really good tab! Personally think it should be number 1. Sounds really good with the intro. Thanks for a great tab!

Sorry, I'm not english, but what do you mean when you said "Play the 2's with your thumb". I know what thumb is, but what about playing the two's is? Thanks!
