What A Wonderful World chords
By George David Weiss and Bob Thiele
Performed by Louis Armstrong *

      D         F#m   G         F#m
I see trees of green, red roses too
  Em       D          F#     Bm
I see them bloom, for me and you,                  
      Bb               Em     A7        D   Gm A7 
And I think to myself, What a wonderful world.

      D        F#m      G         F#m
I see skies of blue and clouds of white,
    Em             D        F#          Bm
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night,
      Bb               Em     A7        D    G  D 
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world 

    A7                        D
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
    A7                   D
Are also on the faces of people goin' by
      Bm              F#m             Bm         F#m
I see friends shaking hands, saying, "How do you do?"
        Em     F#      Em  F#   Em    A7
They're really saying, "I  love you."  

       D      F#m    G          F#m
I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
        Em         D          F#        Bm
They'll learn much more, than I'll ever know,
      Bb               Em     A7        D   F#m B7
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

      Em               A      A7        D    G  D
Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

Thanks for your effort dude, but this is not quite right IMO. The version 1 chords are the best:

I don't know where you got these chords, but they are absolutely masterful. What a joy to play your version. If you came up with them you are a scholar. Thank you. May God Bless You!
