Other people had chords in a different sequence. and it didnt sound right to me, this is just like Ed plays it himself, so this must be a great similar version to the real song. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse]
Dvariant     G                          D/F#   A7sus4
  When I was six years old I broke my leg
D            G                    D/F#        A7sus4   
  And I was running  from my brother and his friends
D            G                   D/F#                 A7sus4       
  And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down
D          G            D/F#               A7sus4
  I was younger  then,  take me back to when I

[Pre-Chorus 1]
G           A7sus4               D
  Found my heart and broke it here
                    G
  Made friends and lost them through the years
G               A7sus4             D                  G
  And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
G              A7sus4
  But I can't wait to go home

[Chorus 1]
  D       G    D/F#         A7sus4
  I'm on my   way, driving at ninety
       D          G     D/F#         A7sus4
  Down those country  lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
      D      G           D/F#      A7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
       D           G      D/F#        A7sus4             D
  When we watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill

[Verse 2]
D          G               D/F#                    A7sus4
  Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
D              G                         D/F#                      A7sus4
  Running from the law through the backfields and  getting drunk with my friends
D         G                D/F#             A7sus4
  Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon I did it
D              G               D/F#                 A7sus4
Right, I was younger  then,  take me back to when we found

[Pre-Chorus 2]
G             A&sus4             D 
  Weekend jobs and when we got paid
                  G                      
  We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
             A7sus4                      D              G
  Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
G             A7sus4(once)
  But I can't wait to go home

[Chorus 2]
  D       G       D/F#       A7sus4
  I'm on my   way, driving at ninety
       D          G     D/F#         A7sus4
  Down those country  lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
      D      G           D/F#       A7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
  D           G      D/F#        A7sus4
  We watched the  sunset over the castle on the hill

   D          G      D/F#        A7sus4
   We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill          
  D         G      D/F#        A7sus4                 
  We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill 


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

[Chorus 3]
  D         G            D/F#        A7sus4
  And I'm on my   way, I still remember
  D         G             D/F#           A7sus4
  These old country  lanes when we did not know the answers
  D         G              D/F#       A7sus4
  And I miss the  way you make  me feel      and it's real
  D         G           D/F#        A7sus4
  We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

  D          G      D/F#        A7sus4
   We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill          
  D         G      D/F#        A7sus4                  - strumm this chords once
  We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill                   
  D (twice)
