Intro - x2, as Jason Mraz plays it -:

A             Gbm
Why are there so many
D           E7
Songs about rainbows
A                 Gbm   D    E7
And what's on the other side
A             Gbm
Rainbow's are visions
D        E7
But only illusions
A                 Gbm        D    E7
And rainbows have nothing to hide
What's so amazing is that it keeps us star gazing
What do they we think we might see?
Bm            E7
Someday we'll find it
A           Gbm
The Rainbow Connection

Bm              E7           A             E7  

The lovers, the dreamers and me
A             Gbm
Have you been half asleep?
D                      E7
And have you heard the voices
A                    Gbm        D    E7
Well I've heard them calling my name
A           Gbm              D               E7
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
A                  Gbm         D    E7
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many many times to ignore it
Ooooohh and that I think it could be

Bm                 E7
Well someday we'll find it
A           Gbm
The Rainbow Connection
Bm             E7           A
The lovers the dreamers and me
Bm            E7
Someday we'll find it
A         Gbm
a Rainbow Connection
Bm                  E7            A
The lovers, oh, the dreamers, and me

  1. Ukulele and me

    +3 is so much easier it has the really basic chords. I’m really glad this is on here I love the muppets

  2. somepersonidk

    Okay guys! So the first part makes no sense on this, so I’d thought I’d help out since I was confused, too. For the opening I would recommend playing this tablature twice:

    Also there doesn’t need to be any thing with the g-string, hopefully you know how to read tabletures :) Another reminder is that if you need help with the timing of this, listen to the beginning on YouTube, and that is the pattern you would want to do!

  3. Lord Athenaseas

    Try +3

  4. i followed along on Spotify,andit is totally different

  5. Jane Packer

    I’m not sure the first part makes sense but good job

  6. I just used the first four chords for the whole song and it works much better

  7. This is all wrong! You are missing like half of the song! PLUS… the intro makes no sense at all.
