Over The Rainbow

From The Album: Don’t Walk, Run


When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There’s a rainbow highway to be found leading
From your window pane 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 go beyond the stars
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

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
