Sheet Music, "Over the Rainbow"

Description (Brief)
“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.” E.Y.”Yip”Harbug’s hopeful lyrics made “Over the Rainbow” from the film The Wizard of Oz an instant favorite with 1939 audiences. The song, composed by Harold Arlen, quickly became a national standard and the signature ballad of the film’s star, Judy Garland (1922–1969).
