Wildflowers

Song Author Dolly Parton Lyrics by: Dolly Parton Performer: Dolly Parton , Linda Ronstadt og Emmy Lou Harris Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]The hills were alive with wild [C]flowers and [G]I  
Was as wild even [D7]wilder than [G]they
For at least I could run they just [C]died in the [G]sun  
And I refused to just [D7]wither in p[G]lace

Just a [C]wild mountain rose needing [G]freedom to grow
So I [C]ran fearing not where I'd [G]go-o-[D7]o   
When a [G]flower grows wild it can [C]always sur[G]vive
Wildflowers don't [D7]care where they [G]grow

And the flowers I knew in the [C]fields where I [G]grew
Were content to be [D7]lost in the [G]crowd
They were commonly close I had [C]no room to [G]grow
And I wanted so [D7]much to branch [G]out  

So I [C]uprooted myself from my [G]home ground and left
Took [C]my dreams and I took to the [G]road-o-[D7]oad   
When a [G]flower grows wild it can [C]always sur[G]vive
Wildflowers don't [D7]care where they [G]grow

I grew up fast and wild and I [C]never felt [G]right
In a garden so [D7]different from [G]me  
I just never belonged I just [C]longed to be [G]gone
So the garden one [D7]day set me [G]free

I hitched a [C]ride with the wind and [G]since he was my friend
I [C]just let him decide where we'd [G]go-o[D7]-o   
When a [G]flower grows wild it can [C]always sur[G]vive
Wildflowers don't [D7]care where they [G]grow

Just a [C]wild mountain rose seeking [G]mysteries untold
No [C]regrets for the path that I [G]chose-o-[D7]ose   
When a [G]flower grows wild it can [C]always sur[G]vive
Wildflowers don't [D7]care where they [G]grow

The hills were alive with wild flowers and I
Was as wild even wilder than they
For at least I could run they just died in the sun
And I refused to just wither in place

Just a wild mountain rose needing freedom to grow
So I ran fearing not where I'd go-o-o
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow

And the flowers I knew in the fields where I grew
Were content to be lost in the crowd
They were commonly close I had no room to grow
And I wanted so much to branch out

So I uprooted myself from my home ground and left
Took my dreams and I took to the road-o-oad
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow

I grew up fast and wild and I never felt right
In a garden so different from me
I just never belonged I just longed to be gone
So the garden one day set me free

I hitched a ride with the wind and since he was my friend
I just let him decide where we'd go-o-o
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow

Just a wild mountain rose seeking mysteries untold
No regrets for the path that I chose-o-ose
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow
