Subject: Tune Req: Tams version of over the hills
From: GUEST,Musicboy

A friend has asked me to play the Tams version of over the hills and far away for him to sing to. The chords are no problem and I can get most of the tune ok but I cannot get the melody of the "over the hills and far away" line for some reason and I cannot find it anywhere on the net (plenty of other settings, but not the one he wants). Please can anyone help?

Just put John Tams' name in YouTube, and you get several clips of him singing the song.

A    G   F#    E   D    B   B
O'er the hills and o'er the Main,

Over the hills and far away.

All in one octave except for the AGA (...er the hills...)in the last line which dips into a lower octave. Key of D. Notes are roughly where they fall with the syllables. This is the way I remember Tams version.

I sing this song in the key of C# which I think suits my voice. (I actually place my capo at the 4th fret and use A D and E7)
Perhaps listening to a different version from John Tams might help with your problem in getting the melody.
Mine can be found at:
