When You're Smiling

PlayingNotes:  F#7 = 3423;  Bm7 = 2222;  Bm6 = 1222;  D7+5 = 3223;  AmM7 = 1000

G            D7              G             D7            G               D7           G      F#7 

 I saw a blind man, he was a kind man, helping a fel-low a-long 
 Bm                  F#7  Bm7               Bm6                D                D#dim            Em7    A7   
One could not see, one could not walk, but they both were humming this song 


D7                        G                           GM7             E7                                    Am 
When you’re smiling, when you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you. 
                        Am  AmM7                      Am7          D7                    D7+5    G 
When you’re laughing,  when you’re laughing,  the sun comes shining through. 
                                G7           C 
But when you’re crying, you bring on the rain, 
                       A7              D7 
So stop your sighing, be happy again. 
D7+5      G                                             E7 
Keep on smiling, ‘cause when you’re smiling 
        Am7              D7                 G       D7 
The whole world smiles with you!          (Coda-“The whole world smiles” X3)

 G               D7       G             D7     G                 D7             G    F#7 
 I used to worry, I used to hurry each time it started to rain 
Bm             F#7  Bm7                          Bm6                   D       D#dim               Em7   A7       
Now I see light, learned wrong from right and you’ll never hear me com – plain 

CHORUS (When you’re smiling….)

Somewhere Over the Rainbow 

C#m = 4446;  C#m6 = 3444;  Bm7 = 2222;  AM7 = 1100;  Bbdim = 0101;
D6 = 2222;  Dm6 = 1222;  F#7 = 3424;  E7sus = 1203

A        F#m    C#m      C#m6     D   Bm7 AM7  Bbdim
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up  high
D6     Dm6 AM7            F#7           Bm7      E7   AM7  E7
There's  a  land that I heard of, once in a lullabye.
A        F#m     C#m      C#m6      D      Bm7  AM7  Bbdim
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue

D6   Dm6 AM7                   F#7        Bm7              E7          AM7  E7sus
And the  dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

AM7                  F#m               Bm7                          E7                     Bm7        E7
Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
             AM7                         F#m                  G#7   
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops,
             C#m   C#m7  Bm7 E7+5
That 's where  you'll  find   me.

A         F#m    C#m     C#m6     D    Bm7  AM7  Bbdim
Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly,
D6    Dm6 AM7        F#7         Bm7               E7          AM7  E7sus
Birds fly  over the rainbow, why then oh why can't I 
     A                  F#m                   Bm7                   E7(sus)               A
If happy little bluebirds fly above the rainbow, why oh why can't I?
