    Transpose 2 half steps down for an easier version.

  • awltux says:

    Transposed +3 is even easier.

  • keychangepleaseee says:

    Where’s the key change :(

  • hitodemori says:

    I like to play this in C major, so for the tab I just do G C E C E C A C F if I remember the song well enough. It sounds nice and is so simple. (I am awful at writing tablature, but it’s easy to pick up if you’ve heard this song recently.) :-)

  • baggedmilk says:

    rest in peace Jim Henson :(

  • littledragonblue says:

    What about the part that goes “All of us under its spell, we know that it’s probably magic?”

  • HoneyUke says:

    I second the +3, but here are better lyrics. Still working on the key change.
    Why are there so many songs about rainbows,
    And what’s on the other side?
    Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
    And rainbows have nothing to hide.
    So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it
    I know they’re wrong, wait and see.
    Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
    The lovers, the dreamers and me.

    Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
    when wished on the morning star?
    Somebody thought of that
    and someone believed it,
    and look what it’s done so far.
    What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
    And what do we think we might see?
    Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
    the lovers, the dreamers and me.

    All of us under its spell,
    we know that it’s probably magic….

    Have you been half asleep
    and have you heard voices?
    I’ve heard them calling my name.
    Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
    The voice might be one and the same.
    I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it.
    It’s something that I’m supposed to be.
    Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
    the lovers, the dreamers and me.
    La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa

    I play it at +5 then the following as the key change

    Em Gbm7 A7 Bm D
    All of us under its spell, we know that it’s probably
    E F
    ma—-gic

    then play it at +6 for the third verse with the song ending

    Fm Gm7 Bb7 Eb Cm
    La da da di da da dum da duh da da dum di da
    Eb
    ohh

  • Connor says:

    For the not musically talented among us, any one figure out how to play the bridge part in the above default key/transposition thingie?

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
