Capo 4th fret

Standard (EADGBE)

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill

I could see the city light

Wind was blowing, time stood still

Eagle flew out of the night

He was something to observe

Came in close, I heard a voice

Standing stretching every nerve

I had to listen had no choice

I did not believe the information

Just had to trust imagination

My heart going boom boom, boom

Son, he said

Grab your things, I've come to take you home.

Eh, don't quit

To keeping 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

Which connection I should cut

I was feeling part of the scenery

I walked right out of the machinery

My heart was going boom boom boom

Hey, he said

Grab your things, I've come to take you home.

Yeah back 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

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
