Notes: 
-Sometimes Ed does a hammer on after the Dsus2 on the 3rd fred of the 1st string in the Verse
-Most of the song is palm-muted on the 1st&2nd chorus have fun with the strumming pattern; the last chorus
 is palm-muted till "when we did not know.."

[Verse 1]
Dsus2           Dadd11/F# Gsus2             Dsus4  A7sus4/E
 When I was six years     old I broke my leg
Dsus2        Dadd11/F# Gsus2                  Dsus4    A7sus4/E
 I was running           from my brother and his friends
Dsus2      Dadd11/F Gsus2                Dsus4          A7sus/E
 And tasted the     sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
Dsus2   Dadd11/F Gsus2 Dsus4           A7sus/E      
 I was younger   then, take me back to when I

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Gsus2              A7sus/E    
Found my heart and broke it here
Dsus2                Gsus2
Made friends and lost them through the years
                 A7sus/E        Dsus2            Gsus2
And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
                A7sus/E
But I can't wait to go home

[Chorus]
Dsus2     Dadd11/F# Gsus2
I'm on    my        way
Dsus4      A7sus4/E  Dsus2  Dadd11/F# Gsus2
Driving at 90 down those  country     lanes
Dsus4       A7sus4/E
Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
Dsus2     Dadd11/F# Gsus2   Dsus4    A7sus4/E
And I miss the      way you make me feel, and it's real
Dsus2      Dadd11/F# Gsus2       Dsus4     A7sus4/E
We watched the       sunset      over the castle on the hill

D

[Verse 2]
Dsus2       Dadd11/F# Gsus2           Dsus4               A7sus4/E
 Fifteen years        old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
Dsus2         Dadd11/F# Gsus2                         Dsus4                  A7sus4/E
 Running from the       law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
Dsus2    Dadd11/F# Gsus2                  Dsus4         A7sus4/E
 Had my first      kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right
Dsus2        Dadd11/F# Gsus2  Dsus4         A7sus4/E
 But I was younger     then,  take me back to when

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Gsus2                  A7sus/E
We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
Dsus2                     Gsus2
We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
                     A7sus/E      Dsus2          Gsus2
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
                 A7sus/E
But I can't wait to go home

[Chorus]
Dsus2     Dadd11/F# Gsus2
I'm on    my        way
Dsus4      A7sus4/E  Dsus2  Dadd11/F# Gsus2
Driving at 90 down those  country     lanes
Dsus4       A7sus4/E
Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
Dsus2      Dadd11/F# Gsus2   Dsus4     A7sus4/E
And I miss the       way you make me feel, and it's real
Dsus2      Dadd11/F# Gsus2       Dsus4     A7sus4/E
We watched the       sunset      over the castle on the hill
Dsus2      Dadd11/F# Gsus2       Dsus4     A7sus4/E
We watched the       sunset      over the castle on the hill

Dsus2   Dadd11/F# Gsus2  Dsus2  A7sus4/E

[Bridge]
Dsus4       Gsus2              Dsus4/G
 One friend left to sell clothes
Dsus2      Gsus2           Dsus4
 One works down by the coast
             Gsus2             Dsus4/G
 One had two kids but lives alone
         Gsus2
 One's brother overdosed
Dsus4         Gsus2             Dsus4/G
 One's already on his second wife
Dsus2       Gsus2          Dsus4
One's just barely getting by
                Gsus2
But these people raised me
Dsus2
And I can't wait to go home

[Chorus]
Dsus2       Dadd11/F# Gsus2 Dsus4     A7sus4/E  
 And I'm on my        way,  I still remember
 Dsus2        Dadd11/F# Gsus2
These old country       lanes
     Dsus4       A7sus4/E 
When we did not know the answers
 Dsus2      Dadd11/F# Gsus2    Dsus4    A7sus4/E
And I miss the        you make me feel, it's real
Dsus2           Dadd11/F# Gsus2           Dsus4     A7sus4/E
When we watched the       sunset over the castle on the hill
Dsus2           Dadd11/F# Gsus2           Dsus4     A7sus4/E
When we watched the       sunset over the castle on the hill
Dsus2        Dadd11/F# Gsus2  Dsus4    A7sus4/E      D
We watched the         sunset over the castle on the hill
