   A                                         E7        
I love to go a-wandering along the mountain track,

    E7          D        Bm     D        E7     A
And as I go, I love to sing, my knapsack on my back.


(Refrain:)

       E7          A
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah,

       E7           A     D     A     D   
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

       E7           A
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah,

    D       E7     A
My knapsack on my back.


I love to wander by the stream that dances in the sun;
So joyously it calls to me, "Come, join my happy song!"

(Refrain:)
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah,
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah, come, join my happy song.

I wave my hat to all I meet, and they wave back to me,
And blackbirds call so loud and sweet from ev'ry green wood tree.

(Refrain:)
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah,
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah, from ev'ry green wood tree.

Oh, may I go a-wandering until the day I die;
Oh, may I always laugh and sing beneath God's clear blue sky,.

(Refrain:)
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah,
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Val-da-ree, val-da-rah, beneath God's clear blue sky.
