                music Henry Mancini, lyrics Johnny Mercer



V1.0 29 August 1996.

This song is from the movie Breakfast At Tiffany's. It won the 
Oscar for Best Song in 1961, and also Best Score. As you probably
know the song was sung by Audrey Hepburn, and BTW her fingering 
was spot on! :-)

All tab and lyrics are as I hear them in the film. 

Verse1.
Moon River wider than a mile,
I'm crossin' you in style, some day.
Oh Dreammaker you heartbreaker,
Wherever your goin', I'm goin' your way.

Verse2.
Two drifters off to see the world;
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end,
Waitin' round the bend, my huckelberry friend.
Moon River and me.

Some of the tab for verse 2 is the same, so refer to the lyrics
above which are in the tab to see which order to play the tab in.
