   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.

  1. Wow I cant believe this was difficulty level 5 it was pretty easy to me…great tab

  2. actually the song is very easy, for someone who doesn’t have the lowest level of skill, so please stop winging

    • Spelling whining is also very easy, for someone who doesn’t have the lowest level of skill, so please stop judging people on their strengths and weaknesses.

  3. I also think there’s an F missing on “chime” :)

  4. I had them spaced out but it didn’t let me do that :/. Basically just every beat starting with the Bb on the word “beat”

  5. I actually think something similar to Katrina but

  6. If it’s too difficult, use the E7 chord instead of the E. (:
