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

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

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)
