Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World

G          D               Am7        G
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
Am7      G                       D         Cmaj    Am7
And the dreams that you dream of once in a lullaby
G          D               Am7          G
Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly
Am7     G                         D                     Cmaj       Am7

Someday I'll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind me
G 
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
D                              Cmaj              Am7
High above the chimney tops is where you'll find me
G         D                Am7          G
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Am7     G                         D                 Cmaj Am7
And the dreams that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?
