G         Bm           G7  C      Bm  G7
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
C       CmBm          E7       A7        D7   G D7
There’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby


G         Bm           G7  C         Bm  G7
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
C   Cm  Bm              E7     A7            D7      G    D7
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true


     G
Some day I’ll wish upon a star
    Am7                               Em7      D7
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me


      G
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
 Gdim7                              Bm           Am7  D7
Away above the chimney tops, that’s where you’ll find me


G         Bm           G7  C         Bm G7
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
C     Cm  Bm       E7
Birds fly over the rainbow

Why then, oh, why can’t I?

Beyond the rainbow

Why, oh, why can’t I?

+3 is the RSC version’s original key for any musical theater kids

Being house bound I have had extra time to adjust to my own liking and put a little more upbeat rhythm in there by adding one chord that’s already used throughout the song! In the intro as well as instrumental break near the end ,I liked the sound of the arrangement as / G / Bm/ C / D7. I also added an extra chord to the end of the 1st line of each verse to coincide with the syllables and chord transition to following verse :
way up high/skies are blue/bluebirds fly- / C / D7 / Bm / G7 /

I’ve been really wanting to play this song since I first got a ukulele and now I can thank you

KateDLanger

Here is the strum pattern that I at least try to use: DDU UD or DDU UDU

Stormi

NO NO NO NO THESE R NOT THE RIGHT CHORDS

Sérgio Hebling

It would be better with a play along.

Maddie Bacon
