Climb Every Mountain chords

from The Sound Of Music

Lyrics: Richard Rodgers / Music: Oscar Hammerstein

Original Key: Key of C Major in 4/4 time with deep feeling in a majestic and stately fashion... maestoso

Chords: C, C7, Cmaj7, D, Dm, Dm7, D7, G, G7, Gm7, Gmaj7, Fm6, Fmaj7, F6, A, Am7, Em, E+

The video is in the key of Bb Major with a key change to B Major after the 3rd verse so if you are playing along and are a beginner, it will be easier to play in G Major with a Capo on the 3rd fret and move it to the 4th fret just before the key change.

Chords with Capo on 3: G, G7, Gmaj7, A, Am, Am7, A7, D, D7, Dm7, Dmaj7, Cmaj7, Cm6, C6, E, Em7, Bm, B+ ... don't be scared by the unusual chords as they are very easy to play... charts for harder chords below.
