[Intro]
C  C  C  C

[Verse 1]
(C              Em)   F              Am    G
When I was six years old I broke my leg
(C      Em)    F              Am           G
I was running from my brother and his friends
(    C      Em) F                     Am             G
And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
(  C     Em)    F    Am              G
I was younger then, take me back to when I

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

[Chorus 1]
(C     Em)   F              Am       G
I'm on my waaaaaay........Driving at 90 down 
(C       Em)   F              Am           G
Those country lanes..........Singing to "Tiny Dancer" And
(C   Em)   F                 Am            G
I miss the waaaaaay you make me feel, and it's real
(C     Em)        F    Am        G            C         C
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

[Verse 2]
(C      Em)   F                Am           G
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
(C          Em)   F                                     Am               G
Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
(C     Em)   F                  Am             G
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right
(C     Em)   F          Am       G
But I was younger then, take me back to when
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
          F        G                C
We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
                  F
We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
(F  Am)      G                    C
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long,
F                  F           G
Oh how we've grown But I can't wait to go home


[Chorus 2]
(C     Em)   F              Am       G
I'm on my waaaaaay........Driving at 90 down 
(C       Em)   F              Am           G
Those country lanes..........Singing to "Tiny Dancer" And
(C   Em)   F                 Am            G
I miss the waaaaaay you make me feel, and it's real
(C     Em)        F    Am        G                    
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill..............

[Chorus tag 1] 
(C Em)   F    Am        G
..............Over the castle on the hill........
(C  Em)  F    Am        G             Am  F   C   G
..............Over the castle on the hill...............

[Bridge 1]
Am          F                   C          G
One friend left to sell clothes One works down by the 
Am                F                    C      G
coast One had two kids but lives alone One's brother overdosed
Am            F
One's already on his second wife 
C          G
One's just barely getting by
Am                F
But these people raised me
C           G
And I can't wait to go home
 
[Chorus 3]
(C     Em)   F              Am       G
And I'm on my way,...... I still remember Those
(C     Em)   F              Am              G
old country lanes......... When we did not know the answers And 
(C     Em)   F                Am       G
I miss the way you make..... me feel, it's real......
(C     Em)     F              Am              G
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

[Outro]
(C     Em)   F              Am       G
...........................Over the castle on the hill
(C     Em)   F              Am       G              C    C    C   C
...........................Over the castle on the hill.....................
