Somewhere Over The Rainbow/what A Wonderful World Chords

   
 SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW/WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
 

Israel Kamakawiwo┬┤ole




CAPO on 5th Fret  (for ukulele effect)
Em+D = (Add the D-Note on the 2. string (third Fret, little finger))



Listen to the song while playing with these chords. It won't take 
long to see which are played twice  and which just once.
 
The trick is to play the bass string once or varying the notes, then the 3 notes/strings of the chord twice (mostly the higher ones), then mute (with the left hand (if right-handed...just by releasing the 
pressure on the strings), again twice and repeat...

Somewhere over the rainbow way   up high


C        G                        D               Em   C


And the dreams that you dream of once in a lul-la-by


G        D                 C            G


Somewhere over the rainbow   blue birds fly


C       G                          D                     Em    C


And the dreams that you dream of, dreams really do come true


     G                         D                                   Em    C


Someday I'll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind  me


        G        


Where trouble melts like lemon drops


D                                     Em             C                              


High above the chi-mn-ey tops that's where,   you'll find me


G          D               C             G 


Somewhere over the rainbow    bluebirds fly


C         G                          D                Em  C           


And the dreams that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?


             G        D       C          G

Well I see trees of green and red roses too,

I see friends shaking hands saying, "How do you do?"


C                 G       C               D   


  They're really saying, "I,      I love you"


        G      D     C              G          


I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,


 


C                  G     D7             Em       


they'll learn much more     than we'll know


       C               D                 Em    C 


And I think to myself,  what a wonderful world

Someday I'll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind    me


        G


Where trouble melts like lemon drops


D                                Em  +D       C


High above the chimney tops is where you'll   find me


G          D                C        G                 


Somewhere over the rainbow   way up high


C         G                      D                        Em  C
And the dreams that you dare to why, oh why, oh why can't I?

This is just a compilation of the work of many others out there, 
with some slight changes to achieve the perfection of the tab. 
I hope this will get all lovers of this song closer to your goal of playing it like the original.   
  
 Have Fun!
