Moon River played by Audrey Hepburn (film version)
from Breakfast at Tiffany's


I noticed there weren't any versions of this song on here that stick to how Audrey Hepburn
plays it in the film, so here it is!



This version is taken from the chord shapes played in the film

I think her guitar is up a semitone so that the F sounds like an F#

Just use a capo on 1 if you want it to sound the same.




[Chords]

(Some chords that Hepburn plays are needlessly positioned where there
are same-note alternatives - so I have just used these - don't worry,
they use the exact same notes but are just easier to play)

[Intro]
| F | % |


[Verse 1] + turnaround
F    Dm     Bb           F/A
Moon River, wider than a mile, 

    Bb              F/A        Em7b5     A7
I'm crossing you in style some day. 

    Dm    F7/C       Bb    Eb9
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,

wherever you're going I'm going your way. 



[Verse 2] + coda
F   Dm       Bb             F/A
Two drifters off to see the world. 

        Bb            F/A      Em7b5     A7
There's such a lot of world to see. 

      Dm Dm/C   Dm/B Bb7       F/A 
We're after the same rainbow's end-- 

Bb                 F/A    
waiting 'round the bend, 

   Bb          F/A
my huckleberry friend, 

Dm   Gm7   C7    Bb  F/A  Gm7  F
Moon River   and me.

You have to click transpose -1 if you want to use capo 1 and be in the same key as the film.

Fine version, good ear!
One suggestion for the F7/C: voicing could rather be x-3-3-2-4-x; easier to play and I don't really hear the high E-string there, so why bother playing it? ;)
