Misc Soundtrack chords for Moon river

Guitar chords with lyrics

music Henry Mancini, lyrics Johnny Mercer


Moon River
as played on guitar in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Sounds lovely on nylon
strings.
These are interesting chords, so try them as I have them written even if
you know another voicing. After the chord blocks I have shown where to
put them relative to the lyrics. The chords change about every other
word, making it difficult to follow if many words are left out.  For most
of the song the two lowest bass notes are picked in sequence followed by
two down strums.

(This is my first try at OLGA and all my own work.)
(I checked and there is another transcription of Moon River on OLGA but
in another key and with very different actual chords written in tab.)
