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