Intro: E5 | E5 | E5 | E5

E5             E5/G#  Asus2              C#m7 Bsus4 Bsus4/Eb E5
When I was six years old I broke my leg,
          E5/G# Asus2             C#m7         Bsus4 Bsus4/Eb E5
I was running from my brother and his friends.
   E5/G#   Asus2                C#m7              Bsus4          Bsus4/Eb E5
Tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down.
         E5/G# Asus2 C#m7
I was younger then.
                Bsus4
Take me back to when

   Bsus4/Eb E5
   I
    Amaj9        Bsus4          E
   Found my heart and broke it here,
                    A6add9
   Made friends and lost them through the years,
 Amaj9            Bsus4             E           E/G# A6add9
   And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I’ve grown,
 Bsus4     B6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     E      E/G# A
     I’m on my way,
     C#m7       B      B/Eb E         E/G# A
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     C#m7        B       B/Eb
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         E      E/G# A          C#m7    B          B/Eb
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     E    E/G#      A      C#m7     B         B/Eb  E5
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: E5 | E5

E5      E5/G#  Asus2              C#m7                Bsus4 Bsus4/Eb E5
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes,
             E5/G#  Asus2
Running from the law through the backfields
   C#m7                Bsus4       Bsus4/Eb E5
And getting drunk with my friends.
       E5/G# Asus2              C#m7         Bsus4             Bsus4/Eb  E5
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon that I did it right.
          E5/G# Asus2 C#m7
I was younger then.
                Bsus4
Take me back to when

      Bsus4/Eb E5 Amaj9
   We found
            Bsus4             E
   Weekend jobs, when we got paid
                   A6add9
   We’d buy cheap spirits and drink them straight.
 Amaj9           Bsus4                E         E/G# A6add9
   Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh, how we’ve grown,
 Bsus4     B6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     E      E/G# A
     I’m on my way,
     C#m7       B      B/Eb E         E/G# A
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     C#m7        B       B/Eb
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         E      E/G# A          C#m7    B          B/Eb
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     E    E/G#      A      C#m7     B         B/Eb  E
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      E/G# A
     Oooh,
     C#m7     B         B/Eb  E
     Over the castle on the hill,
      E/G# A
     Oooh,
     C#m7     B         B/Eb  E5
     Over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: C#m7 | Asus2 | E | Bsus4 B

Bridge:
 C#m7           Asus2
   One friend left to sell clothes,
 E             Bsus4/Eb B/Eb
   One works down by the coast,
 C#m7            Asus2
   One had two kids but lives alone,
 E        Bsus4/Eb B/Eb
   One’s brother overdosed,
 C#m7         Asus2
   One’s already on his second wife,
 E              Bsus4/Eb B/Eb
   One’s just barely getting by
      C#m7             Asus2
   But these people raised me
       E       Bsus4/Eb B/Eb
   And I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
         Esus2  Emaj/G# Asus2
     And I’m on my way,
     C#m7      Bsus4/Eb
     I still remember
            Esus2  Emaj/G# Asus2
     These old country lanes
          C#m7       Bsus4/Eb
     When we did not know the answers
         E      E/G# A          C#m7    B          B/Eb
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     E    E/G#      A      C#m7     B         B/Eb  E
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      E/G# A
     Oooh,
     C#m7     B         B/Eb  E
     Over the castle on the hill,
      E/G# A
     Oooh,
     C#m7     B         B/Eb  E5
     Over the castle on the hill.
