[Verse 1]

D                D/F#  G                  Bm   A
  When I was six years old I broke my leg
D           D/F# G                    Bm         A     
  I was running  from my brother and his friends
D            D/F#  G                   Bm                 A       
  And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down
D           D/F# G    Bm                 A
  I was younger  then,  take me back to when I


[Pre-Chorus 1]

G           A                  D
  Found my heart and broke it here
                    G
  Made friends and lost them through the years
G               A                D                  G
  And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
G              A
  But I can't wait to go home


[Chorus 1]

  D      D/F# G    Bm         A7sus4
  I'm on my   way, driving at ninety
       D         D/F# G     Bm         A7sus4
  Down those country  lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
      D      D/F# G           Bm       A7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
       D          D/F# G      Bm        A7sus4             D
  When we watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill


[Verse 2]

D         D/F#  G               Bm                     A
  Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
D              D/F#   G                          Bm                      A
  Running from the law through the backfields and  getting drunk with my friends
D        D/F#   G                Bm             A
  Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon I did it
D                   D/F# G    Bm                 A
Right but I was younger  then,  take me back to when we found


[Pre-Chorus 2]

G          A                    D 
  Weekend jobs and when we got paid
                  G                      G
  We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
             A                       D              G
  Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
G              A
  But I can't wait to go home


[Chorus 2]

  D      D/F# G    Bm         A7sus4
  I'm on my   way, driving at ninety
       D         D/F# G     Bm         A7sus4
  Down those country  lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
      D      D/F# G           Bm       A7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
       D          D/F# G      Bm        A7sus4
  When we watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill
  D          D/F# G      Bm        A7sus4
  We watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill


[Bridge] 

Bm  G  D  A7sus4

Bm             G                       D           A7sus4
   One friend left to sell clothes and, one works down by the coast
Bm              G                   D       A7sus4
   One had two kids but lives alone, one's brother overdosed
Bm         G                            D            A7sus4
   One's already on his second wife and, one's just barely getting by but
Bm               G                  D       A7sus4
   These people raised me and I-I-I, can't wait to go home


[Chorus 3]

      D      D/F# G    Bm        A7sus4
  And I'm on my   way, I still remember
        D       D/F# G          Bm         A7sus4
  These old country  lanes when we did not know the answers
      D      D/F# G           Bm       A7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
       D          D/F# G      Bm        A7sus4
  When we watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill
  D          D/F# G      Bm        A7sus4
  We watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill
  D          D/F# G      Bm        A7sus4             
  We watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill
  D
