Intro: D

Verse:
D                      G                  Bm   A
  When I was six years old I broke my leg
D                    G                    Bm         A     
  And I was running  from my brother and his friends
D                  G                   Bm                 A       
  And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down
D                 G   Bm                 A
  I was younger  then,  take me back to when I

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

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

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

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

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

  D               G      Bm        A7sus4
                         Over the castle on the hill
  D               G      Bm        A7sus4
                         Over the castle on the hill

Interlude: Bm  G  D  A7sus4

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

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


  D               G      Bm        A7sus4
                         Over the castle on the hill
  D               G      Bm        A7sus4            
                         Over the castle on the hill

Hey strummers! Just a few suggestions.
1. Transpose to -2, of it is too low for your voice, put a capo on the 2nd fret.
2.The only relatively unfamiliar chord is Dsus4, and I would recommend subbing it with a d chord, sounds great!!
3. I do not mean to say that Dsus4 is hard for everybody, I have been playing uke for 7 years, everybody’s skill level is different.
4. Have fun!
Thanks,
Enjoy.

If you change the notes to things that the names sound like it actually sound pretty good especially for the beginners.

I use -2. I already knew the chords G, Am, C, and F and G7sus4 is not hard to do. G, Am, C, and F are the easiest chords in all of the ukulele playing, so if you’re new, start with those -2.

Bit of a beginner here… when you transpose -2, do I need a capo?

Nope! All of the -‘s and +’s you just play the chords.

A7sus4 sounded weird to me so I replaced it with F and its less awkward
