Main theme to "The Sound of Music" - a really nice and easy one to play, and it sounds so beautiful on the flute :) Written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and sung in the film by Julie Andrews.


^C  ^D   ^C   Bb-A    G      F       E         D   E-E
The hills are alive with the sound of music

F           G          F        E         D       E    F     G-A         Bb
With songs they have sung for a thousand years

^C   ^D  ^C  Bb     A        G       F        E        D  E-E
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music

E        F            G       A  Bb  ^C-^D A-G  F    F
My heart wants to sing every song it hears


F          F        F          E    D      D     D       E         E    E    F
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds

F          A        F       E     D     E    E       F
That rise from the lake to the trees

F        D         D        D     E      E    E       F         F    ^C
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies

A         F       G       G   G    G
From a church on a breeze

F      D        D    D     E          E        E   F         F
To laugh like a brook when it trips and

A       F-E       D        E    E      F
Falls over stones on it's way

F     A           F            A      E       D    E   F
To sing through the night like a lark

G     A      B-C    ^D  ^C
Who is learning to pray


^C ^D ^C Bb    A        G       F        E      D   E-E
I      go    to the hills when my heart is lonely

F   G      F  E       D       E        F        G        A-Bb
I know I will hear what I've heard before

B       ^C       A    Bb     ^C        A     Bb     ^C   ^C  ^C-F
My heart will be blessed with the sound of  music

F       Bb     E       E        F
And I'll sing once more...
