Moon River – Fingerstyle #Ukulele with Chords and Lyrics

The music for “Moon River” was written by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Johnny Mercer for the 1961 movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” It won an Academy Award for Best Original Song and also won the 1962 Grammy Awards for both Song of the Year and Record of the Year. It became the theme song for Andy Williams and has been recorded by pretty much everybody.
