This is from the movie "Breakfast At Tiffany's".  It was actually written by Henry
but it's in a different key when Audrey sing it (originally it was in C).  I love this song
no one had gotten it right, so here are, at least to my ear, the correct chords:

Fmaj7  Dm7     Bbmaj7       Fmaj7
Moon   River,  Wider than a mile
     Bbmaj7          Fmaj7
I'm crossing you in style
     Gm7  A7    Dm7    F7
Some day    old dream maker
    Bbmaj7  Ebmaj7
You heart  breaker
   Dm7          Bm7b5 E7       Am7 D7       
Wherever you're go-   ing, I'm go- ing your way
Fmaj  Dm7      Bbmaj7             Fmaj7
Two  drifters, off     to see the world
        Bbmaj7         Fmaj7    Gm7  A7
There's such  a lot of world to see
      Am7       Bm7b5    Bb7    Fmaj7
We're after the same  rainbow's end
Bbmaj7                  Fmaj7
Waiting just around the bend
Bbmaj7          Fmaj7
My huckleberry friend
Dm7  Gm7   A7      Fmaj7
Moon river     and me.

Great tab! But instead of playing A7 at the end, you should play C7. Sounds more like the original. Still an amazing tab though! I'm planning to play this for my girlfriend. She loves Audrey^^

nice tab. most of these voicings sound quite nice but there are a few I would do differently. When Bbmaj7 and Fmaj7 are being alternated it's so clear that a 1st inversion Fmaj7 is used, that way you get that semitone difference in the bass.

Hey, in the movie (when she sings on the fire escape) it is much simpler than you've transcibed: there's no such maj7 and m7 chords.
Check out my version:
