13D D/F# G Bm A
14 When I was six years old I broke my leg
15D D/F# G Bm A
16 And I was running from my brother and his friends
17D D/F# G Bm A
18 And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down
19D D/F# G Bm A
20 I was younger then, take me back to when I
21
22[Pre-Chorus 1]
23G A D
24 Found my heart and broke it here
25 G
26 Made friends and lost them through the years
27G A D G
28 And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
29G A
30 But I can't wait to go home
31
32[Chorus 1]
33 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
34 I'm on my way, driving at ninety
35 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
36 Down those country lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
37 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
38 And I miss the way you make me feel and it's real
39 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4 D
40 When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
41
42[Verse 2]
43D D/F# G Bm A
44 Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
45D D/F# G Bm A
46 Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
47D D/F# G Bm A
48 Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon I did it
49D D/F# G Bm A
50Right, I was younger then, take me back to when we found
51
52[Pre-Chorus 2]
53G A D
54 Weekend jobs and when we got paid
55 G G
56 We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
57 A D G
58 Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
59G A
60 But I can't wait to go home
61
62[Chorus 2]
63 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
64 I'm on my way, driving at ninety
65 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
66 Down those country lanes singing to Tiny Dancer
67 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
68 And I miss the way you make me feel and it's real
69 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
70 We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
71
72 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
73 Over the castle on the hill
74 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
75 Over the castle on the hill

80Bm G D A7sus4
81 One friend left to sell clothes and, one works down by the coast
82Bm G D A7sus4
83 One had two kids but lives alone, one's brother overdosed
84Bm G D A7sus4
85 One's already on his second wife, one's just barely getting by but
86Bm G D A7sus4
87 These people raised me and I-I-I, can't wait to go home
88
89[Chorus 3]
90 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
91 And I'm on my way, I still remember
92 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
93 These old country lanes when we did not know the answers
94 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
95 And I miss the way you make me feel and it's real
96 D D/F# G Bm A7sus4
97 We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
