Lyrics and Music by Ed Sheeran, Benjamin Levin


Intro: G#5 | G#5 | G#5 | G#5

G#5            G#5/C  C#sus2             Fm7 Ebsus4 Ebsus4/G G#5
When I was six years old I broke my leg,
          G#5/C C#sus2            Fm7          Ebsus4 Ebsus4/G G#5
I was running from my brother and his friends.
   G#5/C   C#sus2               Fm7               Ebsus4         Ebsus4/G G#5
Tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down.
         G#5/C C#sus2 Fm7
I was younger then.
                Ebsus4
Take me back to when

   Ebsus4/G G#5
   I
    C#maj9       Ebsus4         G#
   Found my heart and broke it here,
                    C#6add9
   Made friends and lost them through the years,
 C#maj9           Ebsus4            G#          G#/C C#6add9
   And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I’ve grown,
 Ebsus4    Eb6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     G#     G#/C C#
     I’m on my way,
     Fm7        Eb     Eb/G G#        G#/C C#
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Fm7         Eb      Eb/G
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         G#     G#/C C#         Fm7     Eb         Eb/G
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     G#   G#/C      C#     Fm7      Eb        Eb/G  G#5
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: G#5 | G#5

G#5     G#5/C  C#sus2             Fm7                 Ebsus4 Ebsus4/G G#5
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes,
             G#5/C  C#sus2
Running from the law through the backfields
   Fm7                 Ebsus4      Ebsus4/G G#5
And getting drunk with my friends.
       G#5/C C#sus2             Fm7          Ebsus4            Ebsus4/G  G#5
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon that I did it right.
          G#5/C C#sus2 Fm7
I was younger then.
                Ebsus4
Take me back to when

      Ebsus4/G G#5 C#maj9
   We found
            Ebsus4            G#
   Weekend jobs, when we got paid
                   C#6add9
   We’d buy cheap spirits and drink them straight.
 C#maj9          Ebsus4               G#        G#/C C#6add9
   Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh, how we’ve grown,
 Ebsus4    Eb6sus4
   I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
     G#     G#/C C#
     I’m on my way,
     Fm7        Eb     Eb/G G#        G#/C C#
     Driving at ninety down those country lanes,
     Fm7         Eb      Eb/G
     Singing to “Tiny Dancer”
         G#     G#/C C#         Fm7     Eb         Eb/G
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     G#   G#/C      C#     Fm7      Eb        Eb/G  G#
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      G#/C C#
     Oooh,
     Fm7      Eb        Eb/G  G#
     Over the castle on the hill,
      G#/C C#
     Oooh,
     Fm7      Eb        Eb/G  G#5
     Over the castle on the hill.

Instrumental: Fm7 | C#sus2 | G# | Ebsus4 Eb

Bridge:
 Fm7            C#sus2
   One friend left to sell clothes,
 G#            Ebsus4/G Eb/G
   One works down by the coast,
 Fm7             C#sus2
   One had two kids but lives alone,
 G#       Ebsus4/G Eb/G
   One’s brother overdosed,
 Fm7          C#sus2
   One’s already on his second wife,
 G#             Ebsus4/G Eb/G
   One’s just barely getting by
      Fm7              C#sus2
   But these people raised me
       G#      Ebsus4/G Eb/G
   And I can’t wait to go home.

Chorus:
         G#sus2 G#maj/C C#sus2
     And I’m on my way,
     Fm7       Ebsus4/G
     I still remember
            G#sus2 G#maj/C C#sus2
     These old country lanes
          Fm7        Ebsus4/G
     When we did not know the answers
         G#     G#/C C#         Fm7     Eb         Eb/G
     And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real,
     G#   G#/C      C#     Fm7      Eb        Eb/G  G#
     We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill,
      G#/C C#
     Oooh,
     Fm7      Eb        Eb/G  G#
     Over the castle on the hill,
      G#/C C#
     Oooh,
     Fm7      Eb        Eb/G  G#5
     Over the castle on the hill.
