Alternate improvised intro:


[Main Part]

E    C#m7  G#m7     Ebm7 Am7   C#m/A  Eb7  G#m7 C#9
Some where over the rain bow   Way    Up   High
    
F#m7   D9  G#m7           C#9      F#m7      B9    E   A  B
There's a   land that I've heard of once in a lulla-by

E    C#m7  G#m7     Ebm7 Am7    C#m/A  Eb7  G#m7 C#9 
Some where over the rain bow    Skies  are  blue
    
F#m7  D9   G#m7            C#9     F#m7         B9      E
and   the  dreams that you dare to dream really do come true 
 

     E                                                     
Some day I'll wish upon a star and
 
F#m7              B9               G#m7  C#9 F#m7 B9                 
wake up where the clouds are far behind  me
         
      E                                              
Where troubles melt like lemon drops

Bbm7           Eb9                                           
Away above the chimney tops


       G#m7  C#9    F#m7  B9                                             
That's where you'll find  me

C#m/A                            C#m/A
x02120  C#m7  G#m7     Ebm7 Am7  x06650  Eb7    G#m7 C#9
Some    where over the rain bow  blue    birds  fly
     
F#m7   D7  G#m7     C#9  
Birds  fly over the rainbow

F#m7         B9        G#m7 C#9
Why then, oh why can't I?


F#m7   D7  G#m7     C#9
Birds  fly over the rainbow

F#m7         B9        E
Why then, oh why can't I?

   E                          F#m7
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow

B9                 E  C#9  F#m7  B9
Why, oh, why can't I?  


[Outro]

E  C#9  F#m7  B9

a possible last 4 chords at the very end could be E, C#7, F#m, B7, E. Like this:E 0 2 2 1 0 0C#7 9 8 9 10 x xF#M 9 9 11 11 10 9B7 7 9 7 8 7 7E 7 7 9 9 9 7

An alternate for Eaug can also be Em7... x7978x... which actually makes the song a little easier to play. This song can look like a lot is going on but in truth most of the chords used have the same shape. If you are struggling a little with this song, try practicing grouping all the 9th chords (B9, C#9, D9, Eb9) as these all share the same shape, and then practice the group of m7th chords (F#m7, G#m7,Bbm7,C#m7) as these all share the same shape on the fingerboard. After a little practice a pattern of alternating chords emerges, 9th -m7th-9th-m7th . Good Luck.
