Intro:
 Guitar motif x6


Verse 1:
                          A  E/A  A

                          A  E/A  A
  Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
                          F#m  E/F#  F#m
  I could see the city lights
                               F#m  E/F#  F#m
  Wind was blowing, time stood still
                        A  E/A  A
  Eagle flew out of the night
                        A  E/A  A
  He was something to observe
                           F#m  E/F#  F#m
  Came in close; I heard a voice
                             F#m  E/F#  F#m
  Standing, stretching every nerve
                          Dmaj7  E/D  Dmaj7
  I had to listen; had no choice
                               Dmaj7
  I did not believe the information
  E/D         Dmaj7        F#m
  Just had to trust imagination
     E(1)        Dmaj7
  My heart going boom boom boom
  Dmaj7   E/D  Dmaj7   D         A           Esus4   E(2)
  Son, he said,        grab your things I've come to take you home


 Guitar motif x2


Verse 2:
  To keep in silence I resigned
  My friends would think I was a nut
  Turning water into wine
  Open doors would soon be shut
  So I went from day to day
  Though my life was in a rut
  Till I thought of what I'd say
  And which connection I should cut
  I was feeling part of the scenery
  I walked right out of the machinery
  My heart going boom boom boom
  Son, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home


 Guitar motif x4


Verse 3:
  When illusion spin her net
  I'm never where I want to be
  And liberty she pirouette
  When I think that I am free
  Watched by empty silhouettes
  Who close their eyes but still can see
  No one taught them etiquette
  So I will show another me
  Today I don't need a replacement
  I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
  My heart going boom boom boom
  Hey, I said, you can keep my things they've come to take me home

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
                        F#m  E  F#m
I could see the city lights
                              F#m  E  F#m
Wind was blowing, time stood still
                       A   E   A
Eagle flew out of the night
                       A   E   A
He was something to observe
                           F#m   E   F#m
Came in close; I heard a voice
                             F#m   E   F#m
Standing, stretching every nerve
                          Dmaj7
I had to listen; had no choice
  (E)       Dmaj7             Dmaj7
I did not believe the information 
 (E)         Dmaj7         Hm9-7

My heart going boom boom boom
Dmaj7            D(Hm)     A          Esus4   E       (D the intro)
Son, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home


To keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut
Till I thought of what I'd say
And which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
Son, he said, grab your things I've come to take you home


When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
So I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll show them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
Hey, I said, you can keep my things they've come to take me home

[intro]

To keep in silence I resigned,
My friends would think I was a nut,
Turning water into wine,
Open doors would soon be shut,
So I went from day to day,
Though my life was in a rut,
'Til I thought of what I'd say,
Which connection I should cut,
I was feeling part of the scenery,
I walked right out of the machinery,
My heart going boom-boom-boom,
"Son", he said, "Grab your things, I've come to take you home".

[intro]

When illusion spin her net,
I'm never where I want to be,
And liberty she pirouette,
When I think that I am free,
Watched by empty silhouettes,
Who close their eyes, but still can see,
Noone taught them etiquette,
I will show another me,
Today I don't need a replacement,
I'll show them what the smile on my face meant,
My heart going boom-boom-boom,
"Hey", I said, "You can keep my things, they've come to take me home".
