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 Dmaj7 My heart going boom boom boom Dmaj7 E/D Dmaj7 D E Dmaj7 Esus4 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)
