RAINBOW CONNECTION - 5-string banjo

Note: this isn't the original Muppets arrangement. The original version is played 
on a 4-sting banjo, which is tuned differently than a 5-string. This version is 
easier to play on a 5-string and is tabbed from an arrangement I found here:

Verse 1: 
G             Em      C           D
Why are there so many songs about rainbows, 
G                 Em    C       D
and what's on the other side?
G            Em           C      D
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions.
G               Em       C      D
Rainbows have nothing to hide.

So we've been told and some choose to believe it.

Chorus:
[ch]C6/A[/ch]           D/A          Bm7        E/B

The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Verse 2:
G             Em              C            D
Who said that every wish will be heard and answered
G               Em      C
and wished on a morning star?
G        Em                  C         D
Somebody thought of that and someone believed him.
G              Em      C
Look what it's done so far.
Em/G
What's so amazing and keeps us stargazing?
[ch]D3/F#[/ch]
What do we think we might see?

[ch]C6/A[/ch]           D/A          Bm7        E/B

The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

D         Em        G
All of us under its spell,
Em                G        D    Eb   
We know that it's probably magic ............

Verse 3- Key Change:
Ab            Fm              C#             Eb
Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
Ab              Fm         C#     Eb
I've heard them calling my name.
Ab            Fm                C#               Eb
Are these the sweet sounds that called the young sailors?

I think that they're one and the same.

I've heard it too many times to ignore it.

It's something that I'm supposed to be.

Chorus:
