F                                  E
The hills are alive with the sound of music,
     F                                   Bb C7
With songs they have sung for a thousand years.
    F                                     E
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music.
   F              Bb         C  C7   F
My heart wants to sing ev'ry song it hears.

                  Bb            Bb   
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise
         Bb   Bb        F
from the lake to the trees.
    Bb            Bb   
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
       G7     G7    C
from a church on a breeze,
   Bb           Bb            F
to laugh like a brook when it trips and falls
     Bb     Bb     F
over stones on its way,
    Dm    Dm         Am            Dm          G7          C
to sing through the night, like a lark who is learning to pray.

C7 F                                E
I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
   F                                  Bb Bbm
I know I will hear what I've heard before.
    F                   Am                  Bb   Gm7
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
          Am   C7   F
and I'll sing once more.
