[Intro]

G   D   Em*  C  G   D
Em*     C       

G        D/F#     C        G
ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo
C        Bm7      Em       C
ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo


[Verse 1]

G         D/F#             C/B     Em7/D
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
C       G/B                      D/A            Em   C
And the dreams that you dream of once in a lullaby
   G         D/F#             C/B         Em7/D
Oh somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
C       G/B                       D/A                   Em   C
And the dreams that you dream of, dreams really do come true


[Chorus]

    G
Someday i'll wish upon a star
D/F#                               Em   C
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
      G
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
D/F#                               Em           C
High above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me

   G         D/F#             C/B         Em7/D
Oh somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
C       G/B                         D/A               Em   C
And the dreams that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?


[Verse 2]

           G        D         C/B       Em7/D
Well I see trees of green and Red roses too
C                G/B      D/A     Em/B
 I'll watch then bloom for me and you
     C                D/A               Em   C
And I think to myself: what a wonderful world
           G        D             C/B        Em7/D
Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
       C              G/B D/A         Em/B
And the brightness of day, I like the dark
     C                D/A               G    C   G
And I think to myself: what a wonderful world 


[Refrain]

    D/A                       Em/B
The colours of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    D/A                  Em/B
Are also on the faces of people passing bye
    C/B             Em7/D         C/B         Em7/D
See friends shaking hands, saying 'how do you do?'
C/B             Em7/D   C          D
 They're really saying, I...I love you


[Verse 3]

       G      D        C/B         Em7/D
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow
C                   G/B D/A         Em/B
 They'll learn much more than we'll know
     C                D/A               Em   C
And I think to myself: what a wonderful world 


[Chorus]

    G
Someday i'll wish upon a star
D/F#                               Em   C
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
      G
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
D/F#                               Em           C
High above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me

   G         D/F#             C/B     Em7/D
Oh somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
C       G/B                      D/A               Em   C
And the dreams that you dare to, why, oh why can't I?


[Outro]

G        D/F#     C        G
ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo
C        Bm7      Em      C
ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-a-eh-a-a-a-a-a-a-a

(sorry if I sound ignorant) is this in a C key? I'm learning Somewhere Over the Rainbow part for my music class in the key of C, so I was just wondering if this is.
