Lyrics and Music by Ed Sheeran, Benjamin Levin


Intro: D5 | D5 | D5 | D5

D5             D5/F#  Gsus2
When I was six years old
                Bm7 Asus4 Asus4/C# D5
I broke my leg,
          D5/F# Gsus2
I was running from my brother
    Bm7          Asus4 Asus4/C# D5
And his friends.
   D5/F#   Gsus2
Tasted the sweet perfume
       Bm7               Asus4          Asus4/C# D5
Of the mountain grass as I rolled down.
         D5/F# Gsus2 Bm7
I was younger then.
                Asus4
Take me back to when

   Asus4/C# D5
   I
    Gmaj9        Asus4          D
   Found my heart and broke it here,
                    G6add9
   Made friends and lost them through the years,
 Gmaj9            Asus4             D           D/F#
   And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long,
   G6add9
   I know I’ve grown,
 Asus4     A6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     D      D/F# G
     I’m on my way,
     Bm7        A      A/C# D         D/F# G
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Bm7         A       A/C#
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         D      D/F# G
     And I miss the way
             Bm7     A          A/C#
     You make me feel, and it’s real,
     D    D/F#      G
     We watched the sunset
     Bm7      A         A/C#  D5
     Over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: D5 | D5

D5      D5/F#  Gsus2
Fifteen years old
                Bm7                 Asus4 Asus4/C# D5
And smoking hand-rolled cigarettes,
             D5/F#  Gsus2
Running from the law through the backfields
   Bm7                 Asus4       Asus4/C# D5
And getting drunk with my friends.
       D5/F# Gsus2              Bm7
Had my first kiss on a Friday night,
        Asus4             Asus4/C#  D5
I don’t reckon that I did it right.
          D5/F# Gsus2 Bm7
I was younger then.
                Asus4
Take me back to when

      Asus4/C# D5 Gmaj9
   We found
            Asus4             D
   Weekend jobs, when we got paid
                   G6add9
   We’d buy cheap spirits and drink them straight.
 Gmaj9           Asus4                D         D/F#
   Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long,
   G6add9
   Oh, how we’ve grown,
 Asus4     A6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     D      D/F# G
     I’m on my way,
     Bm7        A      A/C# D         D/F# G
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Bm7         A       A/C#
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         D      D/F# G
     And I miss the way
             Bm7     A          A/C#
     You make me feel, and it’s real,
     D    D/F#      G
     We watched the sunset
     Bm7      A         A/C#  D
     Over the castle on the hill,
      D/F# G
     Oooh,
     Bm7      A         A/C#  D
     Over the castle on the hill,
      D/F# G
     Oooh,
     Bm7      A         A/C#  D5
     Over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: Bm7 | Gsus2 | D | Asus4 A

Bridge:
 Bm7            Gsus2
   One friend left to sell clothes,
 D             Asus4/C# A/C#
   One works down by the coast,
 Bm7             Gsus2
   One had two kids but lives alone,
 D        Asus4/C# A/C#
   One’s brother overdosed,
 Bm7          Gsus2
   One’s already on his second wife,
 D              Asus4/C# A/C#
   One’s just barely getting by
      Bm7              Gsus2
   But these people raised me
       D       Asus4/C# A/C#
   And I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
         Dsus2  Dmaj/F# Gsus2
     And I’m on my way,
     Bm7       Asus4/C#
     I still remember
            Dsus2  Dmaj/F# Gsus2
     These old country lanes
          Bm7        Asus4/C#
     When we did not know the answers
         D      D/F# G
     And I miss the way
             Bm7     A          A/C#
     You make me feel, and it’s real,
     D    D/F#      G
     We watched the sunset
     Bm7      A         A/C#  D
     Over the castle on the hill,
      D/F# G
     Oooh,
     Bm7      A         A/C#  D
     Over the castle on the hill,
      D/F# G
     Oooh,
     Bm7      A         A/C#  D5
     Over the castle on the hill.
