About this tab version
This is the original tabulatur as per her live performance at "Blues Alley". She plays it in standard tuning with Capo on 1st fret. I have taken most of the fingering and picking patterns of the video footage. -Enjoy-. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Someday I’ll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, way above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me

Outro: If happy little bluebirds fly, above the rainbow, why, oh why can’t I

This Tab is great, the best i've found in my opinion. It'd be slightly more intuitive to follow if the chord names were above, though to be fair it's still easy to follow. Thanks for it.
