    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.
     

    C

    Someday, I'll wish upon a star,

      G                                                    Am    F

    Wake up where the clouds are far behind   me.

                C

    Where trouble melts like lemon drops,

     G

    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?
