(Atlantic January 12, 1969)

Good Times Bad Times

In the days of my youth I was told what it was to be a man, Now I've reached the age I've tried to do all those things the best I can. No matter how I try, I find my way to do the same old jam. Chorus Good Times, Bad Times, You know I had my share; When my woman left home With a brown eyed man, Well, I still don't seem to care. Sixteen: I fell in love With a girl as sweet as could be, Only took a couple of days Till she was rid of me. She swore that she would be all mine And love me till the end, When I whispered in her ear I lost another friend, oooh. Chorus I know what it means to be alone, I sure do wish I was at home. I don't care what the neighbors say, I'm gonna love you each and every day. You can feel the beat within my heart. Realize, sweet babe, we ain't ever gonna part.

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

Babe, baby, baby, I'm Gonna Leave You. I said baby, you know I'm gonna leave you. I'll leave you when the summertime, Leave you when the summertime comes arollin' Leave you when the summer comes along. Baby, baby, I don't wanna leave you, I ain't jokin' woman, I got to ramble. Oh, yeah, baby, baby, I won't be there, Really got to ramble. I can hear it callin' me the way it used to do, I can hear it callin' me back home. I know, I never leave you, baby. But I got to go away from this place, I've got to quit you. Ooh, baby, Baby, ooh don't you hear it callin'? Woman, woman, I know, I know it's good to have you back again And I know that one day baby, it's really gonna grow, yes it is. We gonna go walkin' through the park every day. Hear what I say, every day. Baby, it's really growin', you made me happy when the skies were grey. But now I've got to go away Baby, baby, baby, baby That's when it's callin' me That's when it's callin' me back home...

You Shook Me

You know you shook me, You shook me all night long. You know you shook me, baby, You shook me all night long. You shook me so hard baby, Baby, baby, please come home. I have a bird that whistles, And I have birds that sing. I have a bird that whistles, And I have birds that sing. I have a bird won't do nothing, oh! Oh, oh, buy a diamond ring. You know you shook me, baby, You shook me all night long. I know you really, really, did baby. I said you shook me, baby. You shook me all night long. You shook me so hard, baby. You shook me all night long.

Dazed And Confused

Been Dazed and Confused for so long it's not true, Wanted a woman, never bargained for you. Lots of people talk and few of them know, Soul of a woman was created below. Yeah! You hurt and abused tellin' all of your lies, Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize. Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been, Oh, I love you baby, here I come again. Every day I work so hard Bringin' home my hard earned pay Try to love you baby, but you push me away. Don't know where you're goin' I don't know just where you've been, Sweet little baby, I want you again. Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true, Wanted a woman, never bargained for you. Take it easy baby, let them say what they will. Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?

Your Time Is Gonna Come

Lyin', cheatin', hurtin, that's all you seem to do. Messin' around with every guy in town, Puttin' me down for thinkin' of someone new. Always the same, playin' your game, Drive me insane, troubles gonna come to you, One of these days and it won't be long, You'll look for me, and, baby, I'll be gone. Your Time Is Gonna Come (4 times) Made up my mind to break you this time, Won't be so fine, it's my turn to cry. Do want you want, I won't take the brunt. It's fadin' away, can't feel you anymore. Don't care what you say 'cause I'm gone away to stay, Gonna make you pay for this great big hole in my heart. People talkin' all around, Watch out woman, no longer is The joke gonna be in my heart. You been bad to me woman, But it's coming back home to you. Your Time Is Gonna Come (4 times)

Black Mountain Side

(instrumental)

Communication Breakdown

Hey, girl, stop what you're doin'! Hey, girl, you'll drive me to ruin. I don't know what it is about you, But I like it alot. Oh, let me hold you, Let me feel your lovin' charms. Chorus Communication Breakdown, It's always the same, I'm having a nervous breakdown, Drive me insane! Hey, girl, I got something I think you ought to know. Hey, babe, I wanna tell you that I love you so. I wanna hold you in my arms, yeah! I'm never gonna let you go, Yes, I like your charms. Chorus

I Can't Quit You, Baby

I Can't Quit You, Baby, So I'm gonna put you down for awhile. I can't quit you, baby, I guess I gotta put you down for awhile. Said you messed up my happy home, Made me mistreat my only child. Yessir, you did! Said you know I love you, baby, My love for you I could never hide. Oh, you know I love you, baby, My love for you I could never hide. Oh, when I feel you near me little girl I know you are my one desire. When you hear me moaning and groaning, baby, You know it hurts me deep down inside. When you hear me moaning and groaning, baby, You know it hurts me deep down inside. Oh, when you hear me, honey, baby, You know you're my one desire. Yes, you are.

How Many More Times

How Many More Times, Treat me the way you wanna do? How Many More Times, Treat me the way you wanna do? When I give you all my love, Please, please be true. I'll give you all I've got to give, Rings, pearls, and all. I'll give you all I've got to give, Rings, pearls, and all. I've got to get you together baby, I'm sure, sure you're gonna crawl. I was a young man, I couldn't resist Started thinkin' it all over, just what I had missed. Got me a girl and I kissed her and then and then Whoops, oh Lordy, well I did it again. Now I got ten children of my own I got another child on the way that makes eleven. But you know, I'm in constant heaven. I know it's all right in my mind I got a little schoolgirl and she's all mine I can't get through to her 'cause it doesn't permit But I'm gonna give her everything I've got to give.

What Is And What Should Never Be

And if I say to you tomorrow, Take my hand, child, come with me. It's to a castle I will take you, Well, what's to be, they say will be. Chorus Catch the wind, see us spin, Sail away, leave today, Way up high in the sky. Then the wind won't blow, You really shouldn't go, It only goes to show That you will be mine By takin' our time. Ooh! And if you say to me tomorrow, Oh what fun it all would be, Then what's to stop us, pretty baby, But What Is And What Should Never Be. Chorus So if you wake up with the sunrise, And all your dreams are still as new, And happiness is what you need so bad, Girl, the answer lies with you, yeah. Chorus Everybody I know seems to know me well but does anybody know I'm gonna move like hell but they're never gonna know cause I move like hell.

The Lemon Song

I should have quit you long time ago, yeah, long time ago. I wouldn't be here, my children, down on this killin' floor. I should have listened, baby, to my second mind I should have listened, baby, to my second mind Everytime I go away and leave you, darling, You send me the blues way down the line. Babe, treat me right, baby, my my my People tellin' me baby can't be satisfied; They try to worry me baby But they never hurt you in my eyes. Said, people worry I can't keep you satisfied. Let me tell you baby, You ain't nothin but a two-bit, no-good jive. Went to sleep last night, worked as hard as I can, Bring home my money, you take my money, give it to another man; I should have quit you, baby, such a long time ago, I wouldn't be here with all my troubles Down on this killin floor. Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg, Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg; The way you squeeze my lemon, I swear I'm gonna fall right out of bed. With you down on this killin floor.

Thank You

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be lovin' you. When mountains crumble to the sea, There'll still be you and me. Kind woman, I give you my all, Kind woman, nothing more. Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, Tears of loves lost in the days gone by. My love is strong, with you there is no wrong, Together we shall go until we die. My, my, my, Inspiration's what you are to me, Inspiration, look see. And so today, my world it smiles, Your hand in mine, we walk the miles, Thanks to you it will be done, For you to me are the only one. Happiness, no more be sad, Happiness....I'm glad.

Heartbreaker

Hey fellas, have you heard the news? You know that Annie's back in town? It won't take long just to watch and see How the fellas lay their money down. Her style is new but the face is the same As it was so long ago, But from her eyes is a diff'rent smile Like that of one who knows. Well, it's been ten years and maybe more Since I first put eyes on you; The best years of my life gone by, Here I am alone and blue. Some people cry and some people die By the wicked ways of love; But I'll just keep on rollin' along With the grace of the Lord above. People talkin' all around 'bout the way you left me flat, I don't care what people say, I know where their jive is at. One thing I do have on my mind, if you can clarify please do, It's the way you call me by another guy's name when I try to make love to you! I try to make love but it ain't no use. Give it to me, give it! Work so hard I couldn't unwind, Get some money saved; Abuse my love a thousand times, However hard I tried. Heartbreaker, your time has come, Can't take your evil way; Go away, Heartbreaker.

Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman)

With a purple umbrella and a fifty cent hat, Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. Missus cool rides out in her aged Cadillac. Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. Chorus Come on, babe on the round about, Ride on the merry-go-round, We all know what your name is, So you better lay your money down. Alimony, alimony payin' your bills, Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. When your conscience hits, you knock it back with pills. Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. Chorus Tellin' tall tales of how it used to be. Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. With the butler and the maid and the servants three. Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. Chorus Nobody hears a single word you say. Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. But you keep on talkin' till your dyin' day. Livin', lovin', she's just a woman. Chorus

Ramble On

Leaves are falling all around, It's time I was on my way. Thanks to you, I'm much obliged For such a pleasant stay. And now it's time for me to go, The autumn moon lights my way. But now I smell the rain, And with it pain, And it's headed my way. Ah, sometimes I grow so tired, But I know one thing I got to do, Ramble On, And now's the time, the time is now To sing my song. I'm goin' 'round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way. Been this way ten years to the day, Ramble On, Find the queen of all my dreams. Got no time to for spreadin' roots, The time has come to be gone. And tho' our health we drank a thousand times, It's time to Ramble On. Chorus Mine's a tale that can't be told, My freedom I hold dear; How years ago in days of old When magic filled the air, T'was in the darkest depth of Mordor I met a girl so fair, But Gollum, the evil one crept up And slipped away with her. Her, her....yea. Ain't nothing I can do, no.

(instrumental)

Bring It On Home

Baby, baby I'm gonna bring it on home to you. I've got my ticket, I've got that load. Got up, gone higher, all aboard. Take my seat, right way back. Watch that train roll down the track. I'm gonna bring it on home, Bring it on home to you. Watch out, watch out. Try to tell you baby what you tryin' to do? Tryin' to love me baby love some other man too. Bring it on home... Went a little walk downtown, messed and got back late. Found a note there waiting It said, "Daddy, I just can't wait." Bring it on home... Bring it back home to me baby... Tell you, pretty baby, you love to mess me `roun'. I'm gonna give you lovin', baby, gonna move you out o' town. Bring it on home... Sweetest little baby daddy ever saw. I'm gonna give you lovin' i'm gonna give you more. Bring it on home, etc. Bring it on home, bring it on home to you....

LED ZEPPELIN III

(Atlantic October 5, 1970)

Immigrant Song

Ah, ah, ah, ah We come from the land of the ice and snow, From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow. The hammer of the gods Will drive our ships to new lands, To fight the hoarde and sing and cry Valhalla, I am coming! On we sweep with threshing car, Our only goal will be the western shore. Ah, ah, ah, ah We come from the land of the ice and snow, From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow. How soft your fields so green, Can whisper tales of gore, Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords. On we sweep with threshing car, Our only goal will be the western shore. So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins, For peace and trust can win the day Despite of all your losing.

Friends

Bright light almost blinding, Black night still there shining, I can't stop, keep on climbing, Looking for what I knew. Had a friend, she once told me, "You got love, you ain't lonely," Now she's gone and left me only Looking for what I knew. Mmm, I'm telling you now, The greatest thing you ever can do now, Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now, It's very easy just. Met a man on the roadside crying, Without a friend, there's no denying, You're incomplete, they'll be no finding Looking for what you knew. So anytime somebody needs you, Don't let them down, altho' it grieves you, Some day you'll need someone like they do, Looking for what you knew. Mmm, I'm telling you now, The greatest thing you ever can do now, Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now, It's very easy just...ooh, yeah.

Celebration Day

Her face is cracked from smiling, All the fears that she's been hiding, And it seems pretty soon ev'rybody's gonna know. And her voice is sore from shouting, Cheering winners who are losing, And she worries if their days are few And soon they'll have to go. Chorus My, my, my, I'm so happy, I'm gonna join the band, We are gonna dance and sing in celebration, We are in the promised land. She hears them talk of new ways To protect the home she lives in, Then she wonders what it's all about When they break down the door. Her name is Brown or White or Black, You know her very well, You hear her cries of mercy As the winners toll the bell. Chorus There is a train that leaves the station Heading for your destination, But the price you pay to nowhere has increased a dollar more. Yes, it has! And if you walk you're gonna get there Tho' it takes a little longer, And when you see it in the distance You will wring your hands and moan.

Since I've Been Loving You

Oh! Workin' from seven to eleven ev'ry night, It really makes life a drag, I don't think that's right. I've really, really been the best of fools, I did what I could, yeah 'Cause I love you, baby, How I love you, darling, How I love you, baby, How I love you, girl, little girl. But baby, Since I've Been Loving You, yeah, I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh, yeah. Ev'rybody trying to tell me That you didn't mean me no good. I've been trying, Lord, let me tell you, Let me tell you I really did the best I could. I've been working from seven to eleven ev'ry night, I said It kinda makes my life a drag. Lord, that ain't right, no no! Since I've Been Loving You, I'm about to lose my worried mind. Said I've been crying, My tears they fell like rain, Don't you hear, Don't you hear them falling, Don't you hear, Don't you hear them falling. Said I been cryin, yeah! Oh my tears they felt like rain. Don't you hear them falling? Don't you hear them? Do you remember, mama, when I knocked upon your door? I said you had the nerve to tell me You didn't want me no more, yeah I open my front door, hear my back door slam, You must have one of them new fangled, New fangled back door man, I've been working from seven, seven, seven, To eleven ev'ry night, It kinda makes my life a drag, a drag, drag, Ah, yeah, it makes a drag. Baby, Since I've Been Loving You, I'm about to lose, I'm about to lose, lose my worried mind. Just one more! Oh yeah Since I've Been Loving You, I'm about to lose my worried mind.

Out On The Tiles

As I walk down the highway all I do is sing this song, And a train that's passin' my way helps the rhythm move along. There is no doubt about the words are clear, The voice is strong, is oh so strong. I'm just a simple guy, I live from day to day. A ray of sunshine melts my frown and blows my blues away, There's nothing more that I can say but on a day like today I pass the time away and walk a quiet mile with you. Chorus All I need from you is all your love, All you got to give to me is all your love, All I need from you is all your love, All you got to give to me is all your love. Oooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, oh yeah. I'm so glad I'm living and gonna tell the world I am, I got me a fine woman and she says that I'm her man, One thing that I know for sure gonna give her all the loving Like nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody can. Standing in the noonday sun trying to flag a ride, People go and people come, see my rider right by my side, It's a total disgrace, they set the pace, it must be a race And the best thing I can do is run. Chorus

Gallows Pole

Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while, Think I see my friends coming, Riding a many mile. Friends, did you get some silver? Did you get a little gold? What did you bring me, my dear friends, To keep me from the Gallows Pole? What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole? I couldn't get no silver, I couldn't get no gold, You know that we're too damn poor To keep you from the Gallows Pole. Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while, I think I see my brother coming, Riding a many mile. Brother, did you get me some silver? Did you get a little gold? What did you bring me, my brother, To keep me from the Gallows Pole? Brother, I brought you some silver, I brought a little gold, I brought a little of ev'ry thing To keep you from the Gallows Pole. Yes, I brought you to keep you from the Gallows Pole. Hangman, hangman, turn your head awhile, I think I see my sister coming, Riding a many mile, mile, mile. Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand, Take him to some shady bower, Save me from the wrath of this man, Please take him, Save me from the wrath of this man, man. Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile, Pray tell me that I'm free to ride, Ride for many mile, mile, mile. Oh, yes, you got a fine sister, She warmed my blood from cold, Brought my blood to boiling hot To keep you from the Gallows Pole, Your brother brought me silver, Your sister warmed my soul, But now I laugh and pull so hard And see you swinging on the Gallows Pole Keep-a-swingin'! Swingin' on the gallows pole!

Tangerine

Measuring a summer's day, I only finds it slips away to grey, The hours, they bring me pain. Chorus Tangerine, Tangerine, Living reflection from a dream; I was her love, she was my queen, And now a thousand years between. Thinking how it used to be, Does she still remember times like these? To think of us again? And I do. Chorus

That's The Way

I don't know how I'm gonna tell you I can't play with you no more, I don't know how I'm gonna do what mama told me, My friend, the boy next door. I can't believe what people saying You're gonna let your hair hang down, I'm satisfied to sit here working all day long, You're in the darker side of town. And when I'm out I see you walking, Why don't your eyes see me, Could it be you've found another game to play, What did mama say to me. Chorus That's The Way, Oh, That's The Way it ought to be, Yeah, yeah, mama say That's The Way it ought to stay. And yesterday I saw you standing by the river, And weren't those tears that filled your eyes, And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying, Had they got you hypnotized? And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers, But all that lives is born to die. And so I say to you that nothing really matters, And all you do is stand and cry. I don't know what to say about it, When all you ears have turned away, But now's the time to look and look again at what you see, Is that the way it ought to stay? That's the way That's the way it oughtta be Oh don't you know now Mama said.. that's the way it's gonna stay, yeah.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

Ah caught you smiling at me, That's the way it should be, Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine. Ah all the good times we had, I sang love songs so glad Always smiling, never sad, so fine. Chorus As we walk down the country lanes, I'll be singing a song, Hear me calling your name. Hear the wind within the trees, Telling Mother Nature 'bout you and me. Well if the sunshines so bright, Or on our way it's darkest night The road we choose is always right, so fine. Ah can your love be so strong When so many loves go wrong Will our love go on and on and on and on and on and on? Chorus My, my la de la come on now it ain't too far, Tell your friends all around the world, Ain't no companion like a blue eyed merle. Come on now well let me tell you, What you're missing, missing, 'round them brick walls. So of one thing I am sure, It's a friendship so pure, Angels singing all around My dog is so fine. Yeah, ain't but one thing to do Spend my nat'ral life with you, You're the finest dog I knew, so fine. When you're old and your eyes are dim, There ain't no old Shep gonna happen again, We'll still go walking down country lanes, I'll sing the same old songs, Hear me call your name.

Hats Off To (Roy) Harper

When I done quit hollerin' baby I believe I shake 'em on down Get my babe, won't be late, You know by that I mean seconds late Ah, must I holler, Must I shake 'em on down, Well I've been mistreated, babe, I believe I'll shake 'em on down.

Black Dog

Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove. Oh, oh, child, way you shake that thing Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting. Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way Watch your honey drip, can't keap away. Chorus Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah. Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah.

Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby, Tell me what you do me now. (Repeat) Didn't take too long 'fore I found out What people mean my down and out. Spent my money, took my car, Started tellin' her friends she wants to be a star. I don't know but I been told A big legged woman ain't got no soul. Chorus All I ask for when I pray, Steady rollin' woman gonna come my way. Need a woman gonna hold my hand And tell me no lies, make me a happy man.

Rock And Roll

It's been a long time since I Rock and Rolled, It's been a long time since I did the Stroll. Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back, Let me get it back, baby, where I come from. It's been a long time, been a long time, Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Yes it has. It's been a long time since the book of love, I can't count the tears of a life with no love. Carry me back, carry me back, Carry me back, baby, where I come from. It's been a long time, been a long time, Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Seems so long since we walked in the moonlight, Making vows that just can't work right. Open your arms, opens your arms, Open your arms, baby, let my love come running in. It's been a long time, been a long time, Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.

The Battle Of Evermore

Queen of Light took her bow And then she turned to go, The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom And walked the night alone. Oh, dance in the dark of night, Sing to the morn - ing light. The dark Lord rides in force tonight And time will tell us all. Oh, throw down your plow and hoe, Rest not to lock your homes. Side by side we wait the might Of the darkest of them all. I hear the horses' thunder Down in the valley blow, I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon, Waiting for the eastern glow. The apples of the valley hold, The seeds of happiness, The ground is rich from tender care, Repay, do not forget, no, no. Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light. The apples turn to brown and black, The tyrant's face is red. Oh the war is common cry, Pick up you swords and fly. The sky is filled with good and bad That mortals never know. Oh, well, the night is long The beads of time pass slow, Tired eyes on the sunrise, Waiting for the eastern glow. The pain of war cannot exceed The woe of aftermath, The drums will shake the castle wall, The ring wraiths ride in black, Ride on. Sing as you raise your bow, Shoot straighter than before. No comfort has the fire at night That lights the face so cold. Oh dance in the dark of night, Sing to the mornin' light. The magic runes are writ in gold To bring the balance back. Bring it back. At last the sun is shining, The clouds of blue roll by, With flames from the dragon of darkness The sunlight blinds his eyes.

Stairway To Heaven

There's a lady who's sure All that glitters is gold And she's buying a stairway to heaven. When she gets there she knows If the stores are all closed With a word she can get what she came for. Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven. There's a sign on the wall But she wants to be sure 'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings. In a tree by the brook There's a songbird who sings, Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven. Ooh, it makes me wonder, Ooh, it makes me wonder. There's a feeling I get When I look to the west, And my spirit is crying for leaving. In my thoughts I have seen Rings of smoke through the trees, And the voices of those who standing looking. Ooh, it makes me wonder, Ooh, it really makes me wonder. And it's whispered that soon If we all call the tune Then the piper will lead us to reason. And a new day will dawn For those who stand long And the forests will echo with laughter. If there's a bustle in your hedgerow Don't be alarmed now, It's just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by But in the long run There's still time to change the road you're on. And it makes me wonder. Your head is humming and it won't go In case you don't know, The piper's calling you to join him, Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, And did you know Your stairway lies on the whispering wind. And as we wind on down the road Our shadows taller than our soul. There walks a lady we all know Who shines white light and wants to show How ev'rything still turns to gold. And if you listen very hard The tune will come to you at last. When all are one and one is all To be a rock and not to roll. And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Misty Mountain Hop

Walkin' in the park just the other day, Baby, What do you, what do you think I saw? Crowds of people sittin' on the grass with flowers in their hair said, "Hey, Boy, do you wanna score?" And you know how it is; I really don't know what time it was, woh, oh, So I asked them if I could stay awhile. I didn't notice but it had got very dark and I was really, Really out of my mind. Just then a policeman stepped up to me and asked us said, "Please, hey, would we care to all get in line, Get in line." Well you know, They asked us to stay for tea and have some fun, Oh, oh, he said that his friends would all drop by, ooh. Why don't you take a good look at yourself and describe what you see, And Baby, Baby, Baby, do you like it? There you sit, sitting spare like a book on a shelf rustin' Ah, not trying to fight it. You really don't care if they're coming, oh, oh, I know that it's all a state of mind, ooh. If you go down in the streets today, Baby, you better, You better open your eyes. Folk down there really don't care, really don't care, don't care, really don't Which, which way the pressure lies, So I've decided what I'm gonna do now. So I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains Where the spirits go now, Over the hills where the spirits fly, ooh. I really don't know.

Four Sticks

Oh, Baby, it's cryin' time, Oh, Baby, I got to fly. Got to try to find a way, Got to try to get away, 'Cause you know I gotta get away from you, Babe. Oh, Baby, the river's red, Oh, Baby, in my head. There's a funny feelin' goin' on, I don't think I can hold out long. Chorus And when the owls cry in the night, Oh, Baby, Baby, when the pines begin to cry, Baby, Baby, Baby, how do you feel? If the river runs dry, Baby, How do you feel? Craze, Baby, the rainbow's end, Mmm, Baby, it's just a den For those who hide, Who hide their love to depths of life And ruin dreams that we all knew so, Babe. Chorus

Going To California

Spent my days with a woman unkind, Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine. Made up my mind to make a new start, Going To California with an aching in my heart. Someone told me there's a girl out there With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair. Took my chances on a big jet plane, Never let them tell you that they're all the same. The sea was red and the sky was grey, Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today. The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake As the children of the sun began to awake. Seems that the wrath of the Gods Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow; I think I might be sinking. Throw me a line if I reach it in time I'll meet you up there where the path Runs straight and high. To find a queen without a king; They say she plays guitar and cries and sings. La la la la Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born. Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams, Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.

When The Levee Breaks

If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break, If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break, When The Levee Breaks I'll have no place to stay. Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan, Lord, mean old levee taught me to weep and moan, Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home, Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well. Don't it make you feel bad When you're tryin' to find your way home, You don't know which way to go? If you're goin' down South They go no work to do, If you don't know about Chicago. Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good, Now, cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good, When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move. All last night sat on the levee and moaned, All last night sat on the levee and moaned, Thinkin' 'bout me baby and my happy home. Going, go'n' to Chicago, Go'n' to Chicago, Sorry but I can't take you. Going down, going down now, going down.

HOUSES OF THE HOLY

(Atlantic March 28, 1973)

The Song Remains The Same

I had a dream oh, yeah crazy dream, uh-huh. Anything I wanted to know Any place I needed to go Hear my song Yeah...People don't you listen now? Sing along! Oh, You don't know what you're missing now. Any little song that you know Everything that's small has to grow. And it has to grow! Push push, yeah! California sunlight, sweet Calcutta rain Honolulu starbright--the song remains the same. ooh! ooh! Here we go! Honolulu now... Sing out Hare Hare, dance the Hoochie Koo. City lights are oh so bright, as we go sliding sliding sliding through. Oh!

The Rain Song

This is the springtime of my loving- the second season I am to know You are the sunlight in my growing- so little warmth I've felt before. It isn't hard to feel me glowing- I watched the fire that grew so low. It is the summer of my smiles- flee from me Keepers of the Gloom. Speak to me only with your eyes it is to you I give this tune. Ain't so hard to recognise- these things are clear to all from time to time. Ooooh... Talk Talk I've felt the coldness of my winter I never thought it would ever go I cursed the gloom that set upon us... But I know that I love you so but I know that I love you so. These are the seasons of emotion And like the winds they rise and fall This is the wonder of devotion- I see the torch we all must hold. This is the mystery of the quotient- Upon us all a little rain must fall. Just a little rain? ooooh, yeah yeah yeah!

Over The Hills And Far Away

Hey lady--you got the love I need Maybe more than enough. Oh Darling... walk a while with me Ooh, you've got so much... Many times I loved Many times been bitten Many times I've gazed Along the open road. Many times I've lied Many times I've listened Many times I've wondered How much there is to know. Many dreams come true And some have silver linings I live for my dream And a pocketful of gold. Mellow is the man Who knows what he's been missing Many many men Can't see the open road. Many is a word That only leaves you guessing Guessing 'bout a thing You really ought to know, ooh! You really ought to know I really ought to know! oooh, You know I should, you know I should, you know I should...

Dancing days are here again As the summer evenings grow I got my flower, I got my power I got a woman who knows. CHORUS I said it's alright You know it's alright I guess it's all in my heart You'll be my only, my one and only Is that the way it should start? Crazy ways are evident In the way that you're wearing your clothes Suppin' boze is precedent As the evening starts to glow. CHORUS I told your mamma I'd get you home But I didn't tell her I had no car I saw a lion he was standing alone With a tadpole in a jar. CHORUS Dancing days are here again As the summer evening grows You are my flower, you are my power You are my woman who knows. CHORUS

No Quarter

Close the door, put out the light. No,they won't be home tonight. The snow falls hard and don't you know? The winds of Thor are blowing cold. They're wearing steel that's bright and true They carry news that must get through, oooh They choose the path where no-one goes. They hold no quarter. They ask no quarter. Walking side by side with death The devil mocks their every step The snow drives back the foot that's slow The dogs of doom are howling more They carry news that must get through To build a dream for me and you They choose the path where no-one goes. They hold no quarter. They ask no quarter. The pain, the pain without quarter. They ask no quarter. Yeah! Without quarter, quarter, yeah! The dogs of doom are howling more! I hear the dogs of doom are howling more!

The Ocean

'got a hell hound on my t(r)ail' 'cause it's hell I'm headed for' (No one really knows which one it is) Uh-huh! oh oh yeah! Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar Play for free, play for me and play a whole lot more, more! Singing 'bout good things and the sun that lights the day I used to sing on the mountains, then the ocean lost it's way. I've been there (I don't know?) Oh oh yeah! Oh, yeah! na na na..., La la la... Sitting round singing songs til the night turns into day Used to sing on the mountains but the mountains washed away Now I'm singing all my songs to the girl who won my heart She is only three years old and it's a real fine way to start. Oh yeah! It sure is fine! Blow my mind! (He's saying something here) Yeah yeah! Do wop a diddly diddly........ Oh, so good!

PRESENCE

(Swan Song March 31, 1976)

Achilles Last Stand

It was an April morning when they told us we should go As I turned to you you smiled at me how could we say no Woah the fun to have to live the dreams we always had woah the songs to sing when we at last return again sending off a glancing kiss to those who claim they know below the streets the seaman hears the devil's in his hole Oh to sail away to sandy lands and other days oh to touch the dream hides inside and never seen, yeah Into the sun the south the north lies the first of hope the shackles of commitment fell in pieces on the ground Oh to ride the wind to tread the air above the din oh to laugh aloud dancing high above the crowd To seek the man whose pointing hand the giant step unfolds With guidance from the curving path that churns up into stone If one bell should ring in celebration for a king so fast the heart should beat as proud the head with heavy feet, yeah (Guitar Solo) Days went by when you and I made an eternal summers glow as far away and distant a mutual time to grow Oh the sweet refrain soothes the soul and calms the pain Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again Wandering upon the rings what place to rest the search the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth from the eeeeaaaarrrrth ooooooooooooooh I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way (2x) I used to know the way ooooooooaaaaaoooooooooooh Oh the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth uuuuh ooooh aaaaaauuuuuhhhhoooohhhhhaaaaaaaahhh

IN THROUGH THE OUT DOOR

(Swan Song August 15, 1979)

In the Evening

In the evening When the day is done I'm looking for my woman Oh, but the girl don't come So don't let her Play you for a fool She don't show no pity baby No no, she don't make no rules Oh, oh, I need your love, I need your love Oh, I need your love I just got to have / I've got pain So don't you let her Oh, get under your skin It's only bad luck and trouble >From the day that you begin I hear you crying in the darkness Don't ask nobody's help Ain't no pockets dull of mercy baby Cause you can only blame yourself Oh it's simple All the pain that you go through You can turn away from fortune, fortune Cause that's all that's left to you It's lonely at the bottom Man, it's dizzy at the top But if you're standing in the middle Ain't no way you're gonna stop Oh whatever what your days may bring No use hiding in a corner Cause that won't change a thing If you're dancing in the doldrums One day soon, it's got to stop, it's got to stop When you're the master of the off-chance Well, you don't expect alot

South Bound Saurez

Fool In The Rain

Oh, baby Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining Like a star that can't wait for the night I hate to think I've been blinded baby Why can't I see you tonight? And the warmth of your smile starts a burning And the thrill of your touch gives me fright And I'm shaking so much, really yearning Why can't you show up, make it all right? Yeah. It's all right. And if you promised you'd love so completely and you said you would always be true You swore that you would never leave me baby What ever happened to you? And you thought it was only .... As you wish all your dreams would come true--Hey It ain't the first time believe me baby I'm standin here feeling blue Yeah I'm blue Now I will stand in the rain on the corner I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown Another ten minutes no longer And then I'm turning around The clock on the wall's moving slower My heart it sinks to the ground And the storm that I thought would blow over Clouds the light of the love that I found Now my body is starting to quiver And the palms of my hands getting wet I've got no reason to doubt you baby It's all a terrible mess I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block Light of the love that I found

Hot Dog

Well I just got into town today To find my girl who's gone away She took the Greyhound at the General Store I searched myself I searched the town When I finaly did sat down I find myself no wiser than before She said we couldn't do no wrong No other love could be so strong She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer Now she took my heart she took my keys From in my old blue dungarees And I'll never go to Texas anymore Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do She took my love and walked right out the door And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure I'm gonna give her something like she never had before I took her love at seventen A little late these days it seems But they said heaven's well worth waiting for I took her word I took it all Beneath the sign that said U-haul She left angels hanging round for more I thought I had it all sewn up Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck But folks said she was after something more I never did quite understand All that talk about rockin' bands But they just rolled my doll right out the door

Carouselambra

Sisters of the way-side bide their time in quiet peace, Await their place within the ring of calm; Still stand to turn in seconds of release, Await the call they know may never come. In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon To jeopardize the course, upset the run; And all was joy and hands were raised toward the sun As love in the halls of plenty overrun. Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast, Unending dances shadowed on the day. Within their walls, their daunting formless keep, Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay. Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep, Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray; And ev'rything is soon no sooner thought than deed, But no one seemed to question anyway. How keen the hunter's eye prevails upon the land To seek the unsuspecting and the weak; And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand Toward the foe that threatened from the deep. Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand Adrift upon a sea of futile speech? ... ... reach Singin' ... Where was your word, where did you go? Where was your helping, where was your bow? Bow. Dull is the armour, cold is the day. Hard was the journey, dark was the way. Way. I heard the word; I couldn't stay. Oh. I couldn't stand it another day, another day-ay, another day, another day. Touched by the timely coming, Roused from the keeper's sleep, Release the grip, throw down the key. Held now within the knowing, Rest now within the peace. Take of the fruit, but guard the seed. Held now within the knowing, Rest now within the beat. Take of the fruit, but guard the seed...

All My Love

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the night To chase a feather in the wind Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight There moves a thread that has no end. For many hours and days that pass ever soon the tides have caused the flame to dim At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom Is this to end or just begin? All of my love, all of my love, oh, All of my love to you, now. All of my love, all of my love, All of my love to you, now. The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again one voice is clear above the din Proud Aryan one word, my will to sustain For me, the cloth once more to spin Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time his is the force that lies within Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find He is a feather in the wind

I'm Gonna Crawl

Oh she's my baby Let me tell you why Hey, she drives me crazy She's the apple of my eye Cause she is my girl And she can never do wrong If I dream too much at night Somebody please bring me down Hey, I love that little lady I got to be her fool Ain't no other like my baby I can break the golden rule Cause I get down on my knees Oh, I pray that love won't die And if I always try to please I don't know the reason why, yeah If she would come back Only stay with me Every little bit of my love, etc. I give to you girl I don't have to go by plane I ain't gotto go by car I don't care just where my darling is People I just don't care how far I'm gonna crawl I don't care if I got to go back home I don't care what I got to stand to get you I'm gonna crawl I'm gonna move the car, baby She give me good lovin Yes I love her, I guess I love her I wanna crawl

Wanna tell you 'bout the girl I love My she looks so fine She's the only one that I been dreamin' of Maybe someday she will be all mine I wanna tell her that I love her so I thrill with her every touch I need to tell her she's the only one I really love I got a woman, wanna ball all day I got a woman, she won't be true, no I got a woman, stay drunk all the time I said I got a little woman and she won't be true Sunday morning when we go down to church See the menfolk standin' in line I said they come to pray to the Lord With my little girl, looks so fine In the evening when the sun is sinkin' low Everybody's with the one they love I walk the town Keep a-searchin' all around: Lookin' for my street corner girl I got a woman, wanna ball all day I got a woman, she won't be true, no no I got a woman, stay drunk all the time I said I got a little woman and she won't be true In the bars, with the men who play guitars Singin', drinkin' and rememberin' the times My little lover does a midnight shift She followed around all the time I guess there's just one thing a-left for me to do Gonna pack my bags and move on my way Cause I got a worried mind Sharin' what I thought was mine Gonna leave her where the guitars play I got a woman, she won't be true, no no I got a woman, wanna ball all day I got a woman, stay drunk all the time I got a little woman and she won't be true (hey hey what can I do) I said she won't be true (Hey Hey, What can I say?) Hey hey, what can I do I got a woman, she won't be true Lo-o-ord, hear what I say I got a woman, wanna ball all day
