[Verse 1]
Dsus4          Cmaj9  G                G6add9 A7sus4
When I was six years old I broke my leg
Dsus4  Cmaj9  G       G6add9                  A7sus4
I was running from my brother and his friends
Dsus4          Cmaj9 G                G6add9           A7sus4
And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
Dsus4 Cmaj9   G     G6add9  A7sus4
I was younger then, take me back to when I

[Pre-Chorus 1]
G              A7sus4
Found my heart and broke it here
Dsus4        G
Made friends and lost them through the years
G                 A7sus4      Dsus4              G
And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
G                    A7sus4
But I can't wait to go home

[Chorus]
Dsus4         Cmaj9 G
I'm on my way
G6add9     A7sus4        Dsus4         Cmaj9 G
Driving at 90 down those country lanes
G6add9     A7sus4
Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
    Dsus4         Cmaj9 G G6add9            A7sus4
And I miss the way        you make me feel, and it's real
Dsus4              Cmaj9 G G6add9  A7sus4
And We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

[Verse 2]
Dsus4         Cmaj9 G         G6add9                 A7sus4
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
Dsus4            Cmaj9 G         G6add9                 A7sus4
Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
Dsus4             Cmaj9 G            G6add9  A7sus4
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right
Dsus4     Cmaj9   G     G6add9  A7sus4
But I was younger then, take me back to when

[Pre-Chorus 2]
G        A7sus4
We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
Dsus4          G
We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
G         A7sus4                               Dsus4          G
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
G           A7sus4
But I can't wait to go home

[Chorus]

Dsus4         Cmaj9 G
I'm on my way
G6add9     A7sus4        Dsus4         Cmaj9 G
Driving at 90 down those country lanes
G6add9     A7sus4
Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
    Dsus4         Cmaj9 G G6add9            A7sus4
And I miss the way        you make me feel, and it's real
Dsus4              Cmaj9 G G6add9  A7sus4
And We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Dsus4              Cmaj9 G G6add9  A7sus4
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

[Bridge]
G6add9     G
One friend left to sell clothes
G              A7sus4
One works down by the coast
G6add9      G
One had two kids but lives alone
G             A7sus4
One's brother overdosed
G6add9  G
One's already on his second wife
G          A7sus4
One's just barely getting by
G6add9           G
But these people raised me
G                A7sus4
And I can't wait to go home

[Chorus]
    Dsus4         Cmaj9 G  G6add9     A7sus4
And I'm on my way,         I still remember
      Dsus4             Cmaj9 G
Those old country lanes
G6add9          A7sus4
When we did not know the answers
    Dsus4         Cmaj9 G G6add9            A7sus4
And I miss the way        you make me feel, and it's real
Dsus4              Cmaj9 G G6add9  A7sus4
And We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Dsus4              Cmaj9 G G6add9  A7sus4
And We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Dsus4              Cmaj9 G G6add9  A7sus4
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
