Somewhere Over The Rainbow - ukulele chords

It's about time I put the chords up to this song, made famous on ukulele by the late great Israel Kamakawiwoʻole (Iz). His version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow is one of the prettiest songs I've heard on uke.

[C]Somewhere [Em]over the rainbow
[F]Way up [C]high
[F]There's a [C]land that I heard of
[G7]Once in a lulla[C]by

Verse 2:

[C]Somewhere [Em]over the rainbow
[F]Skies are [C]blue
[F]And the [C]dreams that you dare to
[G7]Dream really do come [C]true


Some [C]day I'll wish upon a star
And [G7]wake up where the clouds are far be[F]hind me
Where [C]troubles melt like lemondrops
A[G7]way above the chimney tops
That's [Am]where you'll [F]find me

Verse 3:

[C]Somewhere [Em]over the rainbow
[F]Bluebirds [C]fly
[F]Birds fly [C]over the rainbow
[G7]Why then, oh why can't [C]I?


[C]If happy little bluebirds fly

Be[G7]yond the rainbow
Why, oh [F]why [G7]can't [C]I?
