[Verse 1]

G                G/B  Cadd9               Em   D
  When I was six years old I broke my leg
G               G/B Cadd9                 Em         D     
  And I was running  from my brother and his friends
G            G/B  Cadd9                Em                 D       
  And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down
G           G/B  Cadd9 Em                 D
  I was younger  then,  take me back to when I


[Pre-Chorus 1]

Cadd9        D                  G
  Found my heart and broke it here
                    Cadd9
Made friends and lost them through the years
Cadd9            D                G                  Cadd9
And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
Cadd9           D
  But I can't wait to go home


[Chorus 1]

  G      G/B Cadd9 Em         D7sus4
  I'm on my   way, driving at ninety
       G         G/B Cadd9  Em         D7sus4
  Down those country  lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
      G      G/B Cadd9        Em       D7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
       G          G/B Cadd9   Em        D7sus4             G
  When we watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill


[Verse 2]

G         G/B  Cadd9            Em                     D
  Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
G              G/B   Cadd9                       Em                      D
  Running from the law through the backfields and  getting drunk with my friends
G        G/B   Cadd9             Em             D
  Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon I did it
G                G/B Cadd9 Em                 D
Right, I was younger  then,  take me back to when we found


[Pre-Chorus 2]

Cadd9       D                    G 
  Weekend jobs and when we got paid
                  Cadd9                   Cadd9
We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
             D                       G              Cadd9
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
Cadd9          D
  But I can't wait to go home


[Chorus 2]

  G      G/B Cadd9 Em         D7sus4
  I'm on my   way, driving at ninety
       G         G/B Cadd9  Em         D7sus4
  Down those country  lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
      G      G/B Cadd9        Em       D7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
  G          G/B Cadd9   Em        D7sus4
  We watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill

  G          G/B Cadd9   Em        D7sus4
                         Over the castle on the hill
  G          G/B Cadd9   Em        D7sus4
                         Over the castle on the hill


[Bridge]

Em   C  G  D7sus4

Em             Cadd9                    G           D7sus4
   One friend left to sell clothes and, one works down by the coast
Em              Cadd9                G       D7sus4
   One had two kids but lives alone, one's brother overdosed
Em         Cadd9                     G            D7sus4
   One's already on his second wife, one's just barely getting by but
Em               Cadd9               G       D7sus4
   These people raised me and I-I-I, can't wait to go home


[Chorus 3]

      G      G/B Cadd9 Em        D7sus4
  And I'm on my   way, I still remember
        G       G/B Cadd9       Em         D7sus4
  These old country  lanes when we did not know the answers
      G      G/B Cadd9        Em       D7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
  G          G/B Cadd9  Em         D7sus4
  We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

  G          G/B Cadd9   Em        D7sus4
                         Over the castle on the hill
  G          G/B Cadd9   Em        D7sus4            
                         Over the castle on the hill
  G
