    Intro:
    Guitar motif x6
    Verse 1:
    AE/AA
     
    AE/AA
    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill 
    F#mE/F#F#m
    I could see the city lights 
    F#mE/F#F#m
    Wind was blowing, time stood still 
    AE/AA
    Eagle flew out of the night 
    AE/AA
    He was something to observe 
    F#mE/F#F#m
    Came in close; I heard a voice 
    F#mE/F#F#m
    Standing, stretching every nerve 
    Dmaj7E/DDmaj7
    I had to listen; had no choice 
    Dmaj7
    I did not believe the information 
    E/DDmaj7F#m
    Just had to trust imagination 
    EDmaj7
    My heart going boom boom boom 
    Dmaj7E/DDmaj7DEDmaj7Esus4
    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
    Guitar motif to fade (x12)
