Castle On The Hill - Ed Sheeran

Here are the piano notes for Ed Sheeran's newest song 'Castle On The Hill'. 

Verse 1:
When I was six years old I broke my leg
F#    F# F# E   D       A   D   D    D    D


I was running from my brother and his friends
F# F#  E D     G      F#  E D     G   F#    F#


And tasted sweet perfume of the mountain as I rolled down
D      D A     B       A    A   F# F#   A  E      D   F# F#  E 
I was younger then,

F# F#  F# E    D 

Take me back to when...
G       G    G    F#  E


Pre-Chorus:

I found my heart and broke it here
D   D      D    A    C#    D     D   D E 

Made friends and lost them through the years
E         E         F#  G     F#    E          D    D 


And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long,
B     B      B    A    F#   A A      A     E F# F#


I know I've grown
F#  E     F#   F#


And I can't wait to go home
E    F#  E     E   D  D   A



Chorus:
I'm on my way
D     E  F# F#

Driving at 90      down those country lanes
D E       F# C# D D       D        E F#   F#


Singing to "Tiny  Dancer"
D E      F#  G F#  E D 


And I miss the way
D    D  A     F# F#


You make me feel,
E       D   F#   F#


And it's real
D  F#  F#


We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
D      G          F#  E D    D E  F# C# A  D  D   D



Verse 2:
Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
F# F#    E       D   A    D A        D       A    D D D 


Running from the law through the backfields 
A  A        A       A   A     F#      F#    F# E D 

and getting drunk with my friends
E     F# F#    F#   E     D    D 


Had my first kiss on a Friday night,
A      D    A    B    A  F# F# A  A 


I don't reckon that I   did  it right
A   A      G G    F# F# F# E   D


But I was younger then,
D   F# F# F# E    D 


Take me back to when...
G      G     G    F#  E

Pre-Chorus:

We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
F#     D       D  D D A C# D D 


We'd buy cheap spirits, drink them straight
D       E     F#     G F#     E      D      D 


Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long,
B    B     B    A      F#      A     A       A E  F# F# 


Oh, how we've grown
F#  E     F#   F#

I can't wait to go home
E  F#    E    E  D   D   



Chorus:
I'm on my way
D     E  F# F#

Driving at 90      down those country lanes
D E       F# C# D D       D        E F#   F#


Singing to "Tiny  Dancer"
D E      F#  G F#  E D 


And I miss the way
D    D  A     F# F#


You make me feel,
E       D   F#   F#


And it's real
D  F#  F#


We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
D      G          F#  E D    D E  F# C# A  D  D   D


Bridge:
One friend left to sell clothes
F# F# F# E E D


One works down by the coast
F#     F#     F#   E   A    F#


One had two kids but lives alone
A      A    A    A    B    F#   E D


One's brother overdosed
F#      F# E     D E F#


One's already on his second wife
A        A B A   A  F# A F#  F#


One's just barely getting by
A        A     A F#   D E   F#


But these people raised me
F#   F#    E  D      G     F#

And I can't wait to go home
E    F#  F#   D  C#  D   D 



Chorus:
I'm on my way
D     E  F# F#

Driving at 90      down those country lanes
D E       F# C# D D       D        E F#   F#


Singing to "Tiny  Dancer"
D E      F#  G F#  E D 


And I miss the way
D    D  A     F# F#


You make me feel,
E       D   F#   F#


And it's real
D  F#  F#


We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
D      G          F#  E D    D E  F# C# A  D  D   D
