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!

A5             F#5     D5           E5      
Why are there so many songs about rainbows 
    A5             F#5   D5           E5
and what's on the other side?
A5            F#5          D5      E5
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions
    A5             F#5        D5      E5
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.

B5            E5            A5       F#5
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
     D5          E5            A5
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

[repeat intro x2]

A5             F#5              D5            E5
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered 
     A5             F#5     D5       E5
when wished on the morning star?
A5        F#5                 D5       E5
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it.
A5              F#5     D5       E5
Look what it's done so far.

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

B5            E5            A5       F#5
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
    D5           E5            A5
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
E5      F#5       A5
All of us under its spell.
   D5              A5     E5  F5
We know that it's probably magic.

Bb5            G5              Eb5             F5
Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
Bb5              G5         Eb5      F5
I've heard them calling my name.
Bb5          G5               Eb5              F5
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
    Bb5             G5          Eb5        F5
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.

C5            F5            Bb5      G5
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, 
Eb5              F5            Bb5
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
F5      G5        Bb5
La da da dee da da doo
   Eb5        F5         Bb5
La da de dee da dee da doo
