[Intro]

D   


[Verse 1]

D               D/F#    G                  Bm7  A
  When I was six years old I broke my leg
D             D/F#   G                   Bm7          A     
  And I was running from my brother and his friends
D           D/F#  G                    Bm7               A       
  And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
D           D/F#  G    Bm7                 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
               A                 D                    G
  And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
              A 
  But I can't wait to go home


[Chorus 1]

D          G   Bm7         A
I'm on my way, driving at 90
     D              G     Bm7        A
Down those country lanes, singing to Tiny Dancer
    D           G          Bm7      A
And I miss the way you made  me feel, it's real
D              G     Bm7       A                  D
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill


[Verse 2]

D         D/F# G               Bm7                   A
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
D            D/F#   G                           Bm7                     A
Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
D        D/F#  G                Bm7              A
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right
D         D/F#  G   Bm7                A
I was younger then,  take me back to when


[Pre-Chorus 2]

         G        A                 D
We found weekend jobs, 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   Bm7         A
I'm on my way, driving at ninety
     D        D/F#  G    Bm7        A
Down those country lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
    D      D/F#  G          Bm7      A
And I miss the way you made me feel, it's real
D          D/F#  G     Bm7       A
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
D  G  Bm7       A
      Over the castle on the hill
D  G  Bm7       A
      Over the castle on the hill


[Bridge]

Bm7 G D A

Bm7         G                    D                       A
One friend left to sell clothes, one works down by the coast
Bm7         G                   D        A
One had two kids but lives alone, one's brother overdosed
Bm7    G                         D            A
One's already on his second wife, one's just barely getting by
Bm7              G              D       A
But these people raised me and I can't wait to go home


[Chorus 3]

     D        G    Bm7        A
And I'm on my way, I still remember
      D       D/F#  G          Bm7        A
These old country lanes when we did not know the answers
    D      D/F#  G          Bm7      A
And I miss the way you made me feel, it's real
D          D/F#  G     Bm7       A
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
D  G  Bm7       A
      Over the castle on the hill
D  G  Bm7       A
      Over the castle on the hill

The Asus4 in your chords is the correct chord but it is X0223X (or it looks like he's keeping the high G also so A7sus4 - X02233)

The only correction I'll make is that Ed leaves the high E string out during the verses and the bridge. He holds it for most of the chorus though.
