Next Verse (same chording for this as above)

Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

(Bridge)

C Dm (X00231)
Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far


C (or Cmaj7add5)
behind me

Where troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops, that's...

Em Dm7 G

Birds fly over the rainbow, why (then) oh why can't I?

Somewhere Over the Rainbow
(the poem by E. Y. Harburg)


When all the world is a hopeless jumble,
and the raindrops tumble all around,
heaven opens a magic lane.
When all the clouds darken up the skyway,
there's a rainbow highway to be found,
leading from your window pane,
to a place behind the sun,
just a step beyond the rain...


Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
there's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.


Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,
and the dreams that you dare to dream,
really do come true.


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


Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow,
why then, oh, why can't I?
If all those little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,
why, oh why, can't I?

well , how bout this one?

http://www.911tabs.com/tabs/c/chris_imp ... ow_tab.htm

Seems to be a lot of confusion as to if this was really Vai playing on it. :


I just heard a killer version of Steve doing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"...what can you tell me about it?

We often get asked about this track, as well as a few others floating around on filesharing services out there called:
Steve Vai – "Beethoven's 5th"
Yngwie Malmsteen/Steve Vai "Duet"
Satriani/Vai – "Formula 1"

S - "I don't ever recall playing 'Somewhere over the Rainbow', or 'Beethoven's 5th.' I don't ever recall jamming with Yngwie, and I have never heard of a track that Joe and I properly recorded called 'Formula 1.' I think it's all rumors, mistakes or misnamed things."

VAI.COM UPDATE: Thanks to the many fans who wrote in helping clear up this confusion. We have heard that "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" is actually performed by Chris Impellitteri, and that "Beethoven's 5th" is performed by Nuno Bettenbourt (we've been unable to confirm this).

The track "Formula 1" is apparently a mis-titled version of "Juice" that appeared in the video game "Formula 1". A Satriani track also appeared in the game soundtrack - hence the confusion.
