Look To The Rainbow
From "Finian's Rainbow" ca. 1947
Lyrics: E. Y. Harburg:  Music: Burton Lane

        G         Em            G       Em
 On the day I was born, said me father, said he,
          G      (G7) C          (D7)
"I've an elegant legacy waiting for ye.
        D             D7
'tis a rhyme for your lips
       Am7*          D7
 And a song for your heart
    Am7         D7          C          G
 To sing it whenever the world falls apart.

 Chorus:

 G     Em     D   D7       G
Look, look , look to the rainbow.
 Em         G       C  (Am7)    D7 
 Follow it over the hill and the stream.
  G     Em     D   D7       G
 Look, look , look to the rainbow.
 C        G        D7         G
 Follow a fellow who follows a dream.
 C         G      D   D7  G
 Follow a fellow, follow a fellow,
 C        G        D7       G
Follow a fellow who follows a dream.

         G       Em         G         Em
 'Twas a sumptuos gift to bequeath to a child,
          G        (G7)           C           (D7)
 And the lure of that song kept me feet running wild,
          D          D7           Am7*          D7
 For you'll never grow old and you'll never stand still,
        Am7             D7           C           G
 With the whip-poor-will's song just beyond the next hill.

  Chorus ...

      G           Em        G              Em
 So I bundled my heart and I roamed the world free,
       G           (G7)         C            (D7)
To the east with the lark, to the west with the sea,
        D             D7         Am7*           D7
 And I searched all the hills and I scanned all the skies
      Am7        D7         C               G
Till I found it at last in my own true love's eyes.
 
 Chorus ...

*This Am7 is 002010, not 002213.
I'm not positive the one I use is called Am7. 

You can get by with just G, C, D7, and Em (using C instead of Am7) if you insist 
that "less is more.
