Somewhere Over the Rainbow Ukulele Chords

[C] Somewhere [Em] over the rainbow [F] way up [C] high
[F] And the [C] dreams that you dream of [G] once in a lulla-[Am]-by [F]
[C] Somewhere [Em] over the rainbow [F] blue birds [C] fly
[F] And the [C] dreams that you dare to dream,
[G] really do come [Am] true [F]

Some[C]day I’ll wish upon a star,
[G] wake up where the clouds are far be[Am]hind [F] me
Where [C] trouble melts like lemon drops
Way [G] high above the chimney tops is [Am] where you’ll [F] find me

[C] Somewhere [Em] over the rainbow [F] bluebirds [C] fly
[F] Birds fly [C] over the rainbow, [G] why then, oh why [Am] can’t I? [F]

Well I see [C] trees of [G] green and [F] red roses [C] too,
[F] I’ll watch then [C] bloom for [E7] me and [Am] you
And I [F] think to myself, [G] what a wonderful [Am] world [F]

Well I see [C] skies of [G] blue and I see [F] clouds of [C] white
The [F] bright blessed the [C] day – the [E7] dark sacred [Am] night
And I [F] think to myself, [G] what a wonderful [C] world [F] [C]

The [G] colours of the rainbow so [C] pretty in the sky
Are [G] also on the faces of [C] people passing by
I see [F] friends shaking [C] hands saying, [F] ‘How do you [C] do?’
[F] They’re really [C] saying, [Dm] ‘I, I love [G] you’

I hear [C] babies [G] cry and I [F] watch them [C] grow,
[F] They’ll learn [C] much more [E7] than we’ll [Am] know
And I [F] think to myself, [G] what a wonderful [Am] world [F]

Some[C]day I’ll wish upon a star, [G] wake up where the clouds are far be[Am]hind [F] me
Where [C] trouble melts like lemon drops
Way [G] high above the chimney tops is [Am] where [F] you’ll find me

[C] Somewhere [Em] over the rainbow [F] blue [C] birds fly
[F] Birds fly [C] over the rainbow, [G] why then oh why can’t [Am] I [F]

[C] [Em] [F] [C]
