This is the third track released from the EP "Speaking UBass, vol 1 Jazz and Brazil". The track is written by Harold Arlen (music) and Yip Harburg, (lyrics). It is one of the most famous songs from the musical The Wizard of Oz from 1939.

My version starts of with the verse that is not as famous as the chorus.
I sing the melody over a ubass chord arrangement I have written.

More info about the different kala ubass models, and how I use them, can be found at playubass.com


"Over The Rainbow"

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 happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow why, oh, why can't I?
