The Rainbow Connection - Kermit the Frog (The Muppet Movie)
No Capo. Standard Tuning.

Wanted to make sure this song was done right, just like in the movie; key change 
and all! One thing I like to occasionally do when I play this song is make the F#m 
(and especially the Gm , after the key change) an F#m7 (or Gm7) to add a bit of 
texture. It's also fun to throw in the occasional E7 during the verses. Try 
playing around with it!

A             F#m     D           E      
Why are there so many songs about rainbows 
    A             F#m   D           E
and what's on the other side?
A            F#m          D      E
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions
    A             F#m        D      E
and rainbows have nothing to hide.

So we've been told and some choose to believe it.
I know they're wrong, wait and see.

Bm            E            A       F#
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
     D          E            A
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

[repeat intro x2]

A             F#m              D            E
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered 
     A             F#m     D       E
when wished on the morning star?
A        F#m                 D       E
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it.
A              F#m     D       E
Look what it's done so far.

What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing 
and what do we think we might see?

Bm            E            A       F#
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
    D           E            A
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
E/G#      F#m       A/E
All of us under its spell.
   D              A/C#     E  F
We know that it's probably magic.

Bb            Gm              Eb             F
Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
Bb              Gm         Eb      F
I've heard them calling my name.
Bb          Gm               Eb              F
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
    Bb             Gm          Eb        F
The voice might be one and the same.

I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.

Cm            F            Bb      G
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, 
Eb              F            Bb
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
F/A      Gm        Bb/F
La da da dee da da doo
   Eb        F         Bb
La da de dee da dee da doo
