Reggae Covers: The Cimarons – Over The Rainbow (Judy Garland)

Posted on Updated on

The Cimarons were the UK’s first indigenous reggae act, formed in 1967 in London, UK from a core of Jamaican session musicians including Sonny Binns, Winston “Reedy” Reid, Franklyn Dunn, Locksley Gichie, Lloyd “Jah Bunny” Donaldson, Maurice Ellis, and Carl Levy. The original 1939 recording Judy Garland made for The Wizard of Oz became both an instant favorite and a defining track for Garland on the order of Frank Sinatra’sNew York, New York.”

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me
