#1.
F#          B         F#   B                F# 
One time, a long time ago..on a mountain in Switzerland, 
C#7                 F#
yoh, loh, loh, loh, loh..
F#            B          F#      B          F# 
there lived a fair young maiden..lovely but lonely, 
C#7            F#
yoh, hoh, hoh, hoh.

CHORUS:
F#                   B
Day after day, she'd pine her heart away,
F#                         C#7               F#
yoh, loh, loh, loh, lay de yay,  but no love came her way.

#2.
F#                       F#7  
One day, her papa said..'Some day we'll go down to 
                   B                          F#7  
the village in the valley, then you'll meet a nice 
                  C#7                               F#
young man, who’ll ask for your hand, then you'll be happy.

#3.
F#               B      F#       B 
But very day she grew unhappier, on a mountain in 
F#           C#7                 F#
Switzerland, yoh, loh, loh, loh, loh.
F#          B          F#        B            F# 
Every day a little bit lonelier..which way to turn 
    C#7          F#
and which way to go?

CHORUS:
F#                   B
Day after day, she'd pine her heart away,
F#                         C#7               F#
yoh, loh, loh, loh, lay de yay,  but no love came her way.

#4.
F#                           F#7
Some say the maiden's dream, never came true..
                           B
she never got to go to the valley,
                     F#                 C#7
if she did or not, I really don't know, whoa, hoh, hoh, hoh..
              F#
did she die unhappy?

#5.
B          F#        C#7       F#
I'd rather think she found her love.
B               F#            C#7      F#
Wouldn't she be better if she did find love..?
B          F#        C#7                     F#
somewhere, some way..yodel-ady-oh..yodel-ady-ay.
