Moon River, a basic Ukulele rendition

“Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day”

“Moon River” is a song composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, written for the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s and singed by Audrey Hepburn ( also an instrumental version is played over the film’s opening titles).

Recently i’ve realised for my students a pretty simple rendition on ukulele, almost all played on first position: really useful for beginners!

Here the tabs:
