The Sound of Music Rogers and Hammerstein Dm6 - lift 3rd finger [Verse 1] 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. [Chorus] Bb C F My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise Bb C F from the lake to the trees. Bb C F My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies Bb C F from a church on a breeze, Bb C F to laugh like a brook when it trips and falls Bb C F over stones on its way, Dm Dm6 Am Dm G7 C to sing through the night, like a lark who is learning to pray. [Verse 2] C7 F E I go to the hills when my heart is lonely F Bb C I know I will hear what I've heard before. F Am Bb My heart will be blessed with the sound of music C7 F and I'll sing once more.
