5th fret
Capo on 5th Fret

[Verse 1]

       C        Em     Am        Em
I see trees of green, red roses too
Dm         C       E7         Am     
I see them bloom, for me and you,
      F                G                C     G
And I think to myself, What a wonderful world.

[Verse 2]

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


    G                          C
The colours of a rainbow are so pretty in the sky
G                       C
Are also on the faces of people going by
        Am             Em          Am         Em
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
Am             Em    Dm   C   G
They’re really saying I love you.

[Verse 4]

       C      Em     Am           Em
I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
Dm              C             E7        Am
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know,
      F                G               C
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

      F                G                C
Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

I found that using Capo at 3rd fret is better? Otherwise great tab!!

Hi! I simply love this song, thanks for adding the tabs! But I would recommend to use the

instead of the
in verse 3, last sentence. It sounds much better in my opinion!

I agree that Dm sounds better in 3rd "verse", last sentence, in place of C.

I think of this "verse 3" as a bridge, not a verse, since the chord progression is distinct from the other verses. So I write it out with three verses and a bridge between verse 2 and 3. But I'm pretty new, so I don't know if that's technically correct or not.

But, apart from nitpicking, great work, as I really like the ease of this version. I play it w/o capo at all, and I use this version when I play my simple version of the Somewhere Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World fusion song by Israel whatshisname.
