Moon River
by Henry Mancini (music) and Johnny Mercer (lyrics)
(from the film, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”)

This version is in C but that's too high for many people, so try it in various keys. 

The chords in this song are actually much simpler than the "jazz" 
versions that you see areound here, although obviously you can play it any way you want. 

This is in 3/4 time and the vertical lines (|) indicated bars. 
Chords in parentheses seem to me to be optional -- play around and see if you like them. 

C   |Am    |F           |C
Moon River, wider than a mile,
   |F              |C    (C/G) |Bm7b5 |E7
I'm crossing you in style some  day.
   |Am   |C7        |F   |Bb9-5
Old dream-maker, you heartbreaker,
   |Am  |Am7   |[ch]Am7/F#[/ch]
Wherever you're going, 
   |Em7   A7     |Dm7  G (or G9)
I'm going    your way.

C   |Am       |F            |C
Two drifters, off to see the world;
       |F            |C       (C/G) |Bm7b5 |E7
there's such a lot of world to see.
      Am  |Am/G   |Am/F#  |F        |Em7   (Am7)
we're af - ter the same    rainbow's end, 
|F                   |C
   waiting ’round the bend — 
|F               |C
   my huckleberry friend,
|C   |Dm G7     |C
 Moon River, and me.

NOTE: If you repeat the whole song, which given its brevity many would do,
you can end “me” like this; or you can use these as the final chords 
starting with “me” on a single performance: 

F, Em, Dm7, C
