GG chord                              CC chord           GG chord
The hills were alive with wild flowers and I
                 DD chord           GG chord
Was as wild even wilder than they
                                   CC chord           GG chord
For at least I could run they just died in the sun
                      DD chord         GG chord
And I refused to just wither in place
 
       CC chord                          GG chord
Just a wild mountain rose needing freedom to grow
     CC chord                         GG chord    DD chord
So I ran fearing not where I'd go-o-o
       GG chord                         CC chord        GG chord
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
                  DD chord               GG chord
Wildflowers don't care where they grow
 
                              CC chord              GG chord
And the flowers I knew in the fields where I grew
                   DD chord           GG chord
Were content to be lost in the crowd
                               CC chord          GG chord
They were commonly close I had no room to grow
                DD chord              GG chord
And I wanted so much to branch out
 
     CC chord                       GG chord
So I uprooted myself from my home ground and left
        CC chord                        GG chord      DD chord
Took my dreams and I took to the road-o-oad
       GG chord                        CC chord         GG chord
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
                  DD chord               GG chord
Wildflowers don't care where they grow
 
                              CC chord          GG chord
I grew up fast and wild and I never felt right
               DD chord              GG chord
In a garden so different from me
                             CC chord            GG chord
I just never belonged I just longed to be gone
                  DD chord          GG chord
So the garden one day set me free
 
            CC chord                      GG chord
I hitched a ride with the wind and since he was my friend
       CC chord                         GG chord   DD chord
I just let him decide where we'd go-o-o
       GG chord                        CC chord         GG chord
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
                  DD chord               GG chord
Wildflowers don't care where they grow
 
       CC chord                          GG chord
Just a wild mountain rose seeking mysteries untold
     CC chord                         GG chord       DD chord
No regrets for the path that I chose-o-ose
       GG chord                        CC chord         GG chord
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
                  DD chord               GG chord
Wildflowers don't care where they grow

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
