C                Em

Somewhere, over the rainbow,

F             C

     way up high,

F            C

And the dreams that you dreamed of, 

G                 Am       F

Once in a lullaby

       C             Em

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow, 

   F          C

Bluebirds fly

F            C

And the dreams that you dreamed of, 

G                               Am     F

Dreams really do come true.


Someday, I'll wish upon a star,

  G                                                    Am    F

Wake up where the clouds are far behind   me.


Where trouble melts like lemon drops,


High above the chimney top,

              Am           F

That's where you'll find me.

C               Em

Somewhere over the rainbow,

F                  C

    Bluebirds fly

F             C

And the dreams that you dare to

       G                        Am    F

Oh why, oh why can't I?
