Found it!

It's buried way deep on this set of pages http://www.kahua51.org/home.htm.

There's a link to the pdf download here http://www.kahua51.org/Music/Volume1/volume1.htm. Many other uke arrangements are on these pages of the same site.

This is the only copy I've found that has the correct chords. The LYRICS, however, are a different matter! The correct lyrics can be found on this page http://www.theguitarguy.com/overther.htm. That same site, by the way, has a huge number of classic tunes with guitar chords, most of them easily adapted to the uke. http://www.theguitarguy.com/songs.htm

Enoy!

Joe, You're absolutely right on the Em. I noticed it was off from how I usually played it, when I first saw this version.

This pdf isn't accurate, at least it's not accurate for Iz's version. For example, Iz clearly plays C, Em, F, C, and not C, G, F, and C, at the opening.

Try both on the uke and see for yourself.

Here's the beginning of a better arrangement I found. (I wish I could remember where I downloaded this arrangement...)

C Em
Somewhere over the rainbow

F C
way up high

F C
There's a land that I heard of

G Am F
once in a lullaby...

The introduction from the version I found is also (fairly) accurate:

C,Em,F,Fadd9,C,Em,F,Fadd9,F,F,C,Em,F,C,F,G,C, Fadd9
