Castle On the Hill by RIDE
An outstanding ballad from what was sadly the final offering of a really great band.
Chords: Song is played with capo on 2nd Fret and all chords are shown here relative to shape and
Verse 1 ( Capo 2nd Fret )
The Kings been in his bedroom for weeks
In exile from the world, he never speaks
The Queen is in the counting house, her fingers in the till
Something is happening to the castle on the hill
The jesters telling jokes to everyone
Sayin "now he's gone, well ain't it fun"
There's whispers in the courtroom, is he crazy is he ill?
Nobody has an answer but they keep on asking still
And a friend of mine, one of the few
A G D
Has locked himself away like Howard Hughes
They're trying to replace him but they know they never will
A G A G D
And it ain't the same with out him, in the castle on the hill
I cant remember the exact words for Verse 3 but the guitar part is the same, the break in the middle has a
easy lead part but i can't be bothered to TAB that now so you'll have to listen to the CD and work it out
ones self. Enjoy..
