A A E E A A
A A E E A A
Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
A A E E A A
I could see the city light

My friends would think I was a nut

Turning water into wine
F#m F#m E E A A
Open doors would soon be shut

A A E E A A
So I went from day to day
A A E E A A
Though my life was in a rut
F#m F#m E E F#m F#m
'till I thought of what I'd say
F#m F#m E E D D
Which connection I should cut

[Chorus 2]

F#m F#m A A D D
I was feeling part of the scenery

My heart was going boom boom boom

No one taught them etiquette
