Solsbury Hill (Peter Gabriel)

Intro: A E Climbing up on Solsbury H[A]ill [E] [A] I could see the city lig[F#m]hts [E] [F#m] Wind was blowing, time stood s[F#m]till [E] [F#m] Eagle flew out of the n[A]ight[E] [A] He was something to obs[A]erve[E] [A] Came in close; I heard a vo[F#m]ice [E] [F#m] Standing, stretching every ne[F#m]rve [E] [F#m] I had to listen; had no ch[Dmaj7]oice I d[E]id not be[Dmaj7]lieve the informat[Dmaj7]ion Ju[E]st had to t[Dmaj7]rust imaginati[Bm9-7]on My h[E]eart going [Dmaj7]boom boom boom [Dmaj7]Son, he said, gra[D]b your thi[A]ngs I've co[Esus4]me to ta[E]ke you ho[A]me 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 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 show 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
