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
There?s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

C C Em Em F F C C
Oh somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue

F F C C G G Am Am F F
Clouds high over the rainbow make all your dreams come true

C C
Someday I'll wish upon a star,

G G Am Am F F
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 that?s where you'll find me


C C Em Em F F C C
Oh somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly

F F C C G G Am Am F F
Birds fly over the rainbow, oh why, oh why can't I?


C C Em Em F F C C
Well I see trees of green and red roses too,

F F C C Em Em F F
I?ll watch them bloom for me and you

F F G G C C F F C C
And I think to myself, oh what a wonderful world

C C Em Em F F C C F F C C
I see skies of blue and I clouds of white the brightness of day


E7 E7 Am Am F F
The dark sacred night and I think to myself,

G G C C F F C C
Oh 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 the people passing by


F F C C F F C C
I see friends shaking hands saying, ?eHowzit how you??


F F C C Dm7 Dm7 G G
They?re really saying, ?eI love you?


C C Em Em F F C C
And 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 ever know


F F G G C C
And I think to myself, oh what a wonderful world

F F G G C C
Yes I think to myself, oh what a wonderful world
