    C - F

 

    C                                     F                             - Am - G

1.     When I was six years old, I broke my leg,

C                                 F                            Am               - G

    and I was running from my brother and his friends.

C                              F                              Am                     G

    And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down,

C                           F     - Am                                G

    I was younger then,          take me back to when

       - F                   G                         C

    I      found my heart and broke it here,

                                                                             F

    made my friends and lost them through the years.

                           G                       C

    And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown,

F                    G

    but I can't wait to go home

 

 C               F     Am           G

I'm on my way, driving at ninety

            C                  F       Am            G

down those country lanes singing to Tiny Dancer.

        C                F                  - Am               - G

And I miss the way you made         me feel,       it's real,

  C                        F       Am          G                  C

we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

 

    C                         F                         Am                               - G

2.      Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes,

C                             F

    running from the law through the backfields

     Am                               G

    and getting drunk with my friends

C                        F                      Am                G                          C

    Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right,

                              F     - Am                                G

    I was younger then,           take me back to when

                    - F                  G                             C

    we found        weekend jobs, when we got paid

                                                                     F

    we'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight.

                        G                                   C

    Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long,

                                       - F                      G

    oh, how we've grown,        but I can't wait to go home.

 

C               F     Am           G

I'm on my way, driving at ninety

            C                  F       Am            G

down those country lanes singing to Tiny Dancer.

        C                F                  - Am               - G

And I miss the way you made         me feel,       it's real,

  C                        F       Am          G                   C   - F

we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

Am            G                   C   - F Am           G                  C    - F - C - G

  Over the castle on the hill.       Over the castle on the hill.

 

  Am                   F                           - C                    G

3.     One friend left to sell clothes,       one works down by the coast,

Am                    F                             - C                G

    one had two kids but lives alone,         one's brother overdosed.

Am               F                                     - C                   G

    One's already on his second wife,        one's just barely getting by,

Am                           F                    C           G

    but these people raised me and I can't wait to go home.

 

         C               F  Am           G

And I'm on my way,  I still remember

            C              F                 Am               G

these old country lanes when we did not know the answers.

        C                F                  - Am               - G

And I miss the way you made         me feel,       it's real,

  C                        F       Am          G                  C   - F

we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

Am            G                   C   - F Am           G                  C

  Over the castle on the hill.       Over the castle on the hill.
