Intro: F5 | F5 | F5 | F5

F5             F5/A   Bbsus2             Dm7 Csus4 Csus4/E  F5
When I was six years old I broke my leg,
          F5/A  Bbsus2            Dm7          Csus4 Csus4/E  F5
I was running from my brother and his friends.
   F5/A    Bbsus2               Dm7               Csus4          Csus4/E  F5
Tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down.
         F5/A  Bbsus2 Dm7
I was younger then.
                Csus4
Take me back to when

   Csus4/E  F5
   I
    Bbmaj9       Csus4          F
   Found my heart and broke it here,
                    Bb6add9
   Made friends and lost them through the years,
 Bbmaj9           Csus4             F           F/A  Bb6add9
   And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I’ve grown,
 Csus4     C6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     F      F/A  Bb
     I’m on my way,
     Dm7        C      C/E  F         F/A  Bb
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Dm7         C       C/E
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         F      F/A  Bb         Dm7     C          C/E
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     F    F/A       Bb     Dm7      C         C/E   F5
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: F5 | F5

F5      F5/A   Bbsus2             Dm7                 Csus4 Csus4/E  F5
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes,
             F5/A   Bbsus2
Running from the law through the backfields
   Dm7                 Csus4       Csus4/E  F5
And getting drunk with my friends.
       F5/A  Bbsus2             Dm7          Csus4             Csus4/E   F5
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon that I did it right.
          F5/A  Bbsus2 Dm7
I was younger then.
                Csus4
Take me back to when

      Csus4/E  F5 Bbmaj9
   We found
            Csus4             F
   Weekend jobs, when we got paid
                   Bb6add9
   We’d buy cheap spirits and drink them straight.
 Bbmaj9          Csus4                F         F/A  Bb6add9
   Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh, how we’ve grown,
 Csus4     C6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     F      F/A  Bb
     I’m on my way,
     Dm7        C      C/E  F         F/A  Bb
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Dm7         C       C/E
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         F      F/A  Bb         Dm7     C          C/E
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     F    F/A       Bb     Dm7      C         C/E   F
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      F/A  Bb
     Oooh,
     Dm7      C         C/E   F
     Over the castle on the hill,
      F/A  Bb
     Oooh,
     Dm7      C         C/E   F5
     Over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: Dm7 | Bbsus2 | F | Csus4 C

Bridge:
 Dm7            Bbsus2
   One friend left to sell clothes,
 F             Csus4/E  C/E
   One works down by the coast,
 Dm7             Bbsus2
   One had two kids but lives alone,
 F        Csus4/E  C/E
   One’s brother overdosed,
 Dm7          Bbsus2
   One’s already on his second wife,
 F              Csus4/E  C/E
   One’s just barely getting by
      Dm7              Bbsus2
   But these people raised me
       F       Csus4/E  C/E
   And I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
         Fsus2  Fmaj/A  Bbsus2
     And I’m on my way,
     Dm7       Csus4/E
     I still remember
            Fsus2  Fmaj/A  Bbsus2
     These old country lanes
          Dm7        Csus4/E
     When we did not know the answers
         F      F/A  Bb         Dm7     C          C/E
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     F    F/A       Bb     Dm7      C         C/E   F
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      F/A  Bb
     Oooh,
     Dm7      C         C/E   F
     Over the castle on the hill,
      F/A  Bb
     Oooh,
     Dm7      C         C/E   F5
     Over the castle on the hill.
