Somewhere Over The Rainbow
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a land that I've 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?

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?

Why then oh why can't I?
Why then oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why oh why can't I?

Melody Gardot's live version of "Somewhere over the Rainbow", accompanied by Stephan Braun

(Chello intro)

umm walking up the rainbow go-o go-o-o
do do em do em em-emdo
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
there's a land I heard of, once in a lu-lla-by
Somewhere over the rainbo-o-ow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do commme true

Someday I'll wish upon a star, and wake up where the clouds are far behind meee
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops
That's wheeeeere you'll fi-i-ind mee
Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then-oh-why can't III?

(Stephan Braun's solo)

Someday I'll wish upon a star, and wake up where the clouds are far behind meee
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops
That's wherrre you'll fi-ind me-e-e-e

Birds fly over the rainbow, why then-oh-why can't III?

These 2 young people have more musicality in their little toes than I have in my whole 70 year old body!

It's just one of those songs, where no matter how sad you are with everything, it'll make you feel happy and hopeful again.

Melody's voice is incredible. I love how she sings Somewhere Over The Rainbow. 
Thank you.

Beautiful interpretation of a classic. And it is fascinating to see Stephan Braun strum a cello like a guitar!

peter ryan

I was going to ask about that,is it a cello or some new instrument i have never seen either way that's just magical what a musician,

goodmonkey71

Wow! I didn't expect to like this when i heard her say she put her own "spin" on this song but I really like it. She's very talented.
