A  E/A  A
           Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
A  E/A  A
           I could see the city light
F#m  E  F#m
           Wind was blowing, time stood still
F#m  E  F#m
           Eagle flew out of the night


A  E/A  A
           He was something to observe
A  E/A  A
           Came in close, I heard a voice
F#m  E  F#m
           Standing stretching every nerve
F#m  E  F#m                       Dmaj7
           I had to listen had no choice


           E/D       Dmaj7              Dmaj7 
           I did not believe the information
        E/D         Dmaj7           B7sus2
           Just had to trust imagination
           E        B7sus2
           My heart going boom boom, boom


           B7sus2 E       B7sus2
           Son,    he said
           Bm7       A/C#         D       E        A     (riff)
           Grab your things, I've come to take you home.

           Eh, don't quit


A  E/A  A
           To keeping silence I resigned
A  E/A  A
           My friends would think I was a nut
F#m  E  F#m
           Turning water into wine
F#m  E  F#m
           Open doors would soon be shut


A  E/A  A
           So I went from day to day
A  E/A  A
           Though my life was in a rut
F#m  E  F#m
           'till I thought of what I'd say
F#m  E  F#m                          Dmaj7
           Which connection I should cut

        E/D  
    Dmaj7                    Dmaj7 
           I was feeling part of the scenery
           E/D      Dmaj7
           I walked right out of the machinery
    B7sus2 E        B7sus2
           My heart was going boom boom boom


           B7sus2 E       B7sus2
           Hey,    he said
           Bm7       A/C#         D       E        A     (riff)
           Grab your things, I've come to take you home.

           Yeah back home


A  E/A  A
           When illusion spin her net
A  E/A  A
           I'm never where I want to be
F#m  E  F#m
           And liberty she pirouette
F#m  E  F#m
           When I think that I am free


A  E/A  A
           Watched by empty silhouettes
A  E/A  A
           Who close their eyes, but still can see
F#m  E  F#m
           No one taught them etiquette
F#m  E  F#m                    Dmaj7
           I will show another me


           E/D   Dmaj7                 Dmaj7 
           Today I don't need a replacement
           E/D            Dmaj7                     B7sus2
           I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
           E        B7sus2
           My heart going boom boom boom
           

           B7sus2 E       B7sus2

Nice tab! A couple of points though (I'm using the capo 2 version):
-You haven't listed anything for the A/C# chord- I find that the B7sus2, as you've listed it, works well in its place.
-At the end of the verse, you (correctly) put the Dmaj7 over the last line, but for the rest of the verse it should be this way also ie:

A E/A A
He was something to observe
A E/A A
Came in close, I heard a voice
F#m E F#m
Standing stretching every nerve
F#m E F#m Dmaj7
I had to listen had no choice

Should be:

A E/A A A
He was something to observe
E/A A F#m
Came in close, I heard a voice
E F#m F#m
Standing stretching every nerve
E F#m Dmaj7
I had to listen had no choice

(I realise that for the first and third lines, it's not actually a change of chord, but it's part of that little accented group of three between lines so it's probably right to reiterate it there)But yeah, this helped me out a lot, so thanks!
