Intro: G5 | G5 | G5 | G5

G5             G5/B   Csus2              Em7 Dsus4 Dsus4/F# G5
When I was six years old I broke my leg,
          G5/B  Csus2             Em7          Dsus4 Dsus4/F# G5
I was running from my brother and his friends.
   G5/B    Csus2                Em7               Dsus4          Dsus4/F# G5
Tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down.
         G5/B  Csus2 Em7
I was younger then.
                Dsus4
Take me back to when

   Dsus4/F# G5
   I
    Cmaj9        Dsus4          G
   Found my heart and broke it here,
                    C6add9
   Made friends and lost them through the years,
 Cmaj9            Dsus4             G           G/B  C6add9
   And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I’ve grown,
 Dsus4     D6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     G      G/B  C
     I’m on my way,
     Em7        D      D/F# G         G/B  C
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Em7         D       D/F#
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         G      G/B  C          Em7     D          D/F#
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     G    G/B       C      Em7      D         D/F#  G5
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: G5 | G5

G5      G5/B   Csus2              Em7                 Dsus4 Dsus4/F# G5
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes,
             G5/B   Csus2
Running from the law through the backfields
   Em7                 Dsus4       Dsus4/F# G5
And getting drunk with my friends.
       G5/B  Csus2              Em7          Dsus4             Dsus4/F#  G5
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon that I did it right.
          G5/B  Csus2 Em7
I was younger then.
                Dsus4
Take me back to when

      Dsus4/F# G5 Cmaj9
   We found
            Dsus4             G
   Weekend jobs, when we got paid
                   C6add9
   We’d buy cheap spirits and drink them straight.
 Cmaj9           Dsus4                G         G/B  C6add9
   Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh, how we’ve grown,
 Dsus4     D6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     G      G/B  C
     I’m on my way,
     Em7        D      D/F# G         G/B  C
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Em7         D       D/F#
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         G      G/B  C          Em7     D          D/F#
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     G    G/B       C      Em7      D         D/F#  G
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      G/B  C
     Oooh,
     Em7      D         D/F#  G
     Over the castle on the hill,
      G/B  C
     Oooh,
     Em7      D         D/F#  G5
     Over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: Em7 | Csus2 | G | Dsus4 D

Bridge:
 Em7            Csus2
   One friend left to sell clothes,
 G             Dsus4/F# D/F#
   One works down by the coast,
 Em7             Csus2
   One had two kids but lives alone,
 G        Dsus4/F# D/F#
   One’s brother overdosed,
 Em7          Csus2
   One’s already on his second wife,
 G              Dsus4/F# D/F#
   One’s just barely getting by
      Em7              Csus2
   But these people raised me
       G       Dsus4/F# D/F#
   And I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
         Gsus2  Gmaj/B  Csus2
     And I’m on my way,
     Em7       Dsus4/F#
     I still remember
            Gsus2  Gmaj/B  Csus2
     These old country lanes
          Em7        Dsus4/F#
     When we did not know the answers
         G      G/B  C          Em7     D          D/F#
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     G    G/B       C      Em7      D         D/F#  G
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      G/B  C
     Oooh,
     Em7      D         D/F#  G
     Over the castle on the hill,
      G/B  C
     Oooh,
     Em7      D         D/F#  G5
     Over the castle on the hill.
