Over the Rainbow
Eva Cassidy
Listen to the audio file Here

Somewhere over the rainbow
way up high
in the land
that I heard of once
once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
skies are blue
and the dreams
that you dare to dream
really do come true

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

(Instrumental)

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

Somewhere over the rainbow
skies are blue
and the dreams...that you dare to dream
really do come true
If happy little bluebirds fly
above the rainbow, why
Oh, why can't I?


The song was written for Judy Garland in 1939

Eva Cassidy
(2 Feb 1963 2 Nov 1996)
ne Eva Marie Cassidy

A three octave voice of crystalline perfection that could interpret anything and make it sound as if it was  only the music that mattered! 1 2

Eva Cassidy "was an American vocalist (Born in Washington, DC) described by the British newspaper The Guardian as "one of the greatest voices of her generation." She had a diverse repertoire of jazz, blues, folk, gospel and pop."

"Cassidy remained virtually unknown outside of her native Washington, DC, when she died of melanoma (which had spread to her bones) in 1996. Her posthumously released recordings have since sold in excess of four million copies, and in early 2001 the compilation album Songbird reached #1 on the UK album charts."
