 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

Led Zeppelin was the definitive heavy metal band. It wasn't just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues — it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres (most notably world music and British folk) — into their sound. Led Zeppelin had mystique. They rarely gave interviews, since the music press detested the band. Consequently, the only connection the audience had with the band was through the records and the concerts. More than any other band, Led Zeppelin established the concept of album-oriented rock, refusing to release popular songs from their albums as singles. In doing so, they established the dominant format for heavy metal, as well as the genre's actual sound. Led Zeppelin formed out of the ashes of the Yardbirds. Jimmy Page had joined the band in its final days, playing a pivotal role on their final album, 1967's Little Games, which also featured string arrangements from John Paul Jones. During 1967, the Yardbirds were fairly inactive. While the Yardbirds decided their future, Page returned to session work in 1967. In the spring of 1968, he played on Jones' arrangement of Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man." During the sessions, Jones requested to be part of any future project Page would develop. Page would have to assemble a band sooner than he had planned. In the summer of 1968, the Yardbirds' Keith Relf and James McCarty left the band, leaving Page and bassist Chris Dreja with the rights to the name, as well as the obligation of fulfilling an upcoming fall tour. Page set out to find a replacement vocalist and drummer. Initially, he wanted to enlist singer Terry Reid and Procol Harum's drummer B.J. Wilson, but neither musician was able to join the group. Reid suggested that Page contact Robert Plant, who was singing with a band called Hobbstweedle. After hearing him sing, Page asked Plant to join the band in August of 1968, the same month Chris Dreja dropped out of the new project. Following Dreja's departure, John Paul Jones joined the group as its bassist. Plant recommended that Page hire John Bonham, the drummer for Plant's old band, the Band of Joy. Bonham had to be persuaded to join the group, as he was being courted by other artists who offered the drummer considerably more money. By September, Bonham agreed to join the band. Performing under the name the New Yardbirds, the band fulfilled the Yardbirds' previously booked engagements in late September 1968. The following month, they recorded their debut album in just under 30 hours. Also in October, the group switched its name to Led Zeppelin.

The band secured a contract with Atlantic Records in the United States before the end of the year. Early in 1969, Led Zeppelin set out on their first American tour, which helped set the stage for the January release of their eponymous debut album. Two months after its release, Led Zeppelin had climbed into the U.S. Top Ten. Throughout 1969, the band toured relentlessly, playing dates in America and England. While they were on the road, they recorded their second album, Led Zeppelin II, which was released in October of 1969. Like its predecessor, Led Zeppelin II was an immediate hit, topping the American charts two months after its release and spending seven weeks at number one. The album helped establish Led Zeppelin as an international concert attraction, and for the next year, the group continued to tour relentlessly. Led Zeppelin's sound began to deepen with Led Zeppelin III. Released in October of 1970, the album featured an overt British folk influence. The group's infatuation with folk and mythology would reach a fruition on the group's untitled fourth album, which was released in November of 1971. Led Zeppelin IV was the band's most musically diverse effort to date, featuring everything from the crunching rock of "Black Dog" to the folk of "The Battle of Evermore," as well as "Stairway to Heaven," which found the bridge between the two genres. "Stairway to Heaven" was an immediate radio hit, eventually becoming the most played song in the history of album-oriented radio; the song was never released as a single. Despite the fact that the album never reached number one in America, Led Zeppelin IV was their biggest album ever, selling well over 16 million copies over the next two and a half decades. Led Zeppelin did tour to support both Led Zeppelin III and Led Zeppelin IV, but they played fewer shows than they did on their previous tours. Instead, they concentrated on only playing larger venues. After completing their 1972 tour, the band retreated from the spotlight and recorded their fifth album. Released in the spring of 1973, Houses of the Holy continued the band's musical experimentation, featuring touches of funk and reggae among their trademark rock and folk. The success of Houses of the Holy set the stage for a record-breaking American tour. Throughout their 1973 tour, Led Zeppelin broke box-office records — most of which were previously held by the Beatles — across America. The group's concert at Madison Square Garden in July was filmed for use in the feature film The Song Remains the Same, which was released three years later. After their 1973 tour, Led Zeppelin spent a quiet year during 1974, releasing no new material and performing no concerts. They did, however, establish their own record label, Swan Song, which released all of Led Zeppelin's subsequent albums, as well as records by Dave Edmunds, Bad Company, the Pretty Things, and several others. Physical Graffiti, a double album released in February of 1975, was the band's first release on Swan Song. The album was an immediate success, topping the charts in both America and England.

Led Zeppelin launched a large American tour in 1975, but it came to a halt when Robert Plant and his wife suffered a serious car crash while vacationing in Greece. The tour was canceled and Plant spent the rest of the year recuperating from the accident. Led Zeppelin returned to action in the spring of 1976 with Presence. Although the album debuted at number one in both America and England, the reviews for the album were lukewarm, as was the reception to the live concert film The Song Remains the Same, which appeared in the fall of 1976. The band finally returned to tour America in the Spring of 1977. A couple of months into the tour, Plant's six-year-old son Karac died of a stomach infection. Led Zeppelin immediately canceled the tour and offered no word whether or not it would be rescheduled, causing widespread speculation about the band's future. For a while, it did appear that Led Zeppelin was finished. Robert Plant spent the latter half of 1977 and the better part of 1978 in seclusion. The group didn't begin work on a new album until late in the summer of 1978, when they began recording at ABBA's Polar studios in Sweden. A year later, the band played a short European tour, performing in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Austria. In August of 1979, Led Zeppelin played two large concerts at Knebworth; the shows would be their last English performances. In Through the Out Door, the band's much-delayed eighth studio album, was finally released in September of 1979. The album entered the charts at number one in both America and England. In May of 1980, Led Zeppelin embarked on their final European tour. In September, Led Zeppelin began rehearsing at Jimmy Page's house in preparation for an American tour. On September 25, John Bonham was found dead in his bed — following an all-day drinking binge, he had passed out and choked on his own vomit. In December of 1980, Led Zeppelin announced they were disbanding, since they could not continue without Bonham. Following the breakup, the remaining members all began solo careers. John Paul Jones returned to producing and arranging, finally releasing his solo debut, Zooma, in 1999. After recording the soundtrack for Death Wish II, Jimmy Page compiled the Zeppelin outtakes collection Coda, which was released at the end of 1982. That same year, Robert Plant began a solo career with the Pictures at Eleven album. In 1984, Plant and Page briefly reunited in the all-star oldies band the Honeydrippers.

After recording one EP with the Honeydrippers, Plant returned to his solo career and Page formed the Firm with former Bad Company singer Paul Rogers. In 1985, Led Zeppelin reunited to play Live Aid, sparking off a flurry of reunion rumors; the reunion never materialized. In 1988, the band re-formed to play Atlantic's 25th anniversary concert. During 1989, Page remastered the band's catalog for release on the 1990 box set Led Zeppelin. The four-disc set became the biggest-selling multi-disc box set of all time, which was followed up three years later by another box set, the mammoth ten-disc set The Complete Studio Recordings. In 1994, Page and Plant reunited to record a segment for MTV Unplugged, which was released as No Quarter in the fall of 1994. Although the album went platinum, the sales were disappointing considering the anticipation of a Zeppelin reunion. The following year, Page and Plant embarked on a successful international tour, which eventually led to an all-new studio recording in 1998, the Steve Albini-produced Walking Into Clarksdale. Surprisingly, the album was met with a cool reception by the record-buying public, as Page and Plant ended their union shortly thereafter, once again going their separate ways (Page would go on to tour with the Black Crowes, while Plant would resume his solo career). Further Zeppelin compilation releases saw the light of day in the late-'90s, including 1997's stellar double-disc BBC Sessions, plus Zep's first true best-of collections — 1999's Early Days: The Best Of, Vol. 1 and 2000's Latter Days: The Best Of, Vol. 2.

Good times bad times

In the days of my youth
I was told what it means to be a man
And now I've reached that age
I've tried to do all those things the best I can
No matter how I try
I find my way to the same old jam

Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share
When my woman left home for a brown-eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

Sixteen, I fell in love with a girl as sweet as could be
It 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
But when I whispered in her ear, I lost another friend, oh

Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share
When my woman left home for a brown-eyed man
but I still don't seem to care

Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share
When my woman left home for a brown-eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

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 never gonna part
I feel good when I look into your eyes

 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 summer comes a-rollin'
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 believin',
We really got to ramble.
I can hear it callin' me the way it used to do,
I can hear it
callin' me back home!

Babe... I'm gonna leave you
Oh, baby, you know,
I've really got to leave you
Oh I can hear it callin 'me
I said don't you hear it
callin' me the way it used to do?

I know I never never never
gonna leave your babe
But I got to go away from this place,
I've got to quit you, yeah
Baby, ooh don't you hear it callin' me?
Woman, woman, I know, I know
It feels 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.
Come what may, every day

It was really, really good.
You made me happy every single day.
But now... I've got to go away!

Baby, baby, baby, baby
That's when it's callin' me
I said 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
Ha-ha-ha, I have a bird won't do nothin', aah-ah, oh-whoa
Buy a diamond ring, yeah

Ow, ow
Huh, hah
Alright, ah, yeah

You know, you shook me, baby, you shook me all night long
I know you really, really did, babe
I said, you shook me, baby, you shook me all night long
You shook me so hard, baby
Babe, ah-ah, ah-ow, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-da-da, ah-ah-ah-da-da

Look girl you got me faded
Like I downed the whole bottle
Yeah you walked in the room
Looking like a Victoria Secret model
Throw your number in my iPhone

And then let me take you home
I swear I think I fell in love
Either that or my drink's too strong

Took a walk on the clouds

Fell asleep on the moon
And I'm not coming down now
That am with you
If we ever wake up
Don't know what I would do
Are we really in love?
Or Dazed and Confused
Ba da ba da ba da
Ba da ba da got me feeling like
Ba da ba da ba da

Ba da ba da ba da

Yeah you taking selfies with your girls

And dancing with your ass out
The way your drop it down low
I swear got me 'bout to pass out
Feeling tippsy everytime you kiss me
Girl you got me high
Yeah this love we got is trippy

But it's all good
We just Dazed and Confused
Wake up in the morning
What the hell do we do?

Took a walk on the clouds
Fell asleep on the moon

If we ever wake up
Don't know what I would do

Or Dazed and Confused
Ba da ba da ba da

Aight here's how it's going down
You me and your homegirl
Can get a little freaky in my hotel
Just don't let me catch up being sneaky
With your phone girl
This a quick way to get dismissed
Now I hope we on the same page
But that's what I love about college chicks
I keep getting older and they stay the same age
Now turn around let me get a peek
Good Lord that's a miracle
But don't get too geek
Feel them sheets that's not boyfriend material
She got a body like mmh
And a face like eeh
I got one head saying mmh mmh
And the other one saying yes

Took a walk on the clouds
Fell asleep on the moon
And I'm not coming down now
That am with you
If we ever wake up
Don't know what I would do
Are we really in love?
Or Dazed and Confused
Ba da ba da ba da

The lemon song

I should have quit you long time ago
Yeah long time ago.
Oh 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 x2
Everytime i go away and leave you darling
You send me the blues way down the line.
Babe treat me right baby oh 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 killing floor.
Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg, x2
The way you squeeze my lemon,
I.i'm gonna fall right out of bed, yeah.
Hey!

Baby baby baby...
I'm gonna leave my children down on this killin floor

Thank you

If the sun refused to shine
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea
There will 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 an inspiration is what you are to me
Inspiration, look see.
And so today, my world it smiles
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles
For you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad

Happiness
I'm glad

If the sun refused to shine
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea
There will still be you and me.

Heartbreaker

Hey fellas, have you heard the news?
You know that Annie's back in town?
It won't take long just 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, a diff'rent smile
Like that of one who knows

Well, it's been ten years and maybe more
Since I first set 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 the people say, I know where they're drivin 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, yeah
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.
Heartbreaker!

With the butler and the maid and the servants three.

Livin', lovin', she's just a woman.
Nobody hears a single word you say.

But you keep on talkin' till your dyin' day.

Ramble on

Leaves are fallin' all around, time I was on my way,
But now it's time for me to go, the autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain, and with it, pain
And it's headed my way
Aw, sometimes I grow so tired
But I know I've got one thing I got to do
A-ramble on, and now's the time, the time is now

Sing my song, I'm goin' 'round the world, I gotta find my girl
On my way, I've been this way ten years to the day
Ramble on, gotta find the queen of all my dreams
Got no time to for spreadin' roots, the time has come to be gone

And though our health we drank a thousand times
it's time to ramble on
A-ramble on, and now's the time, the time is now

Sing my song, I'm goin' 'round the world
I've gotta find my girl
On my way, I've been this way ten years to the day
I gotta ramble on, I gotta find the queen of all my dreams
I tell you no lie
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
'twas in the darkest depths of Mordor, mm-I met a girl so fair
but Gollum and the evil warg crept up and slipped away with her
her, her, yeah, and ain't nothin' I can do, no
I guess I'll keep on ramblin', I'm gonna

Sing my song/Sh-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah, I've gotta find my baby

Try to love me, baby, love some other man, too

Found a note there waitin', it said, "Daddy, I just can't wait"
Bring it on home, bring it on home

Led Zeppelin III

Immigrant song

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 horde and sing and cry, Valhalla, I am coming

On we sweep with, with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

We come from the land of the ice and snow
from the midnight sun where the hot springs FLOW
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, with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

S-so now you better stop and rebuild all your ruins
for peace and trust can winthe day despite of all you're losin'

Friends

Bright light, almost blindin'
Black night still there shinin'
I can't stop, keep on climbin'
Lookin' for what I knew

Had a friend, she once told me
"You got a love, you ain't lonely"
Now she's gone and left me only
Lookin' for what I knew

Mm, I'm tellin' 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-a

Met a man on the roadside cryin'
Without a friend, there's no denyin'
You're incomplete, there'll be no findin'
Lookin' for what you knew

So anytime somebody needs you
Don't let 'em down, although it grieves you
Someday you'll need someone like they do
Lookin' for what you knew

Mm, mm, I'm tellin' 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-a, oh, yeah
Ah, nah, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, yeah

I'm tellin' you, now
The greatest thing you ever can do, now
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue, now
It's very easy, it's very easy
It's very easy, it's easy, easy, yeah, yeah, 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.

My, my, my, I'm so happy,
I'm gonna join the band,
We are gonna sing and dance 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.

My, my, my, I'm so happy,
I'm gonna join the band,
We are gonna sing and dance in celebration,
We are in the promised land.

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

Working from seven to eleven every night
It really makes life a drag, I don't think that's right
I've really, been the best, 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

Baby, since I've been loving you, yeah
I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh yeah

Everybody 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 every night
I said it kinda makes my life a drag, drag, drag, drag, Lord, that ain't right

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

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 back door man

I've been working from seven, seven, seven, to eleven every night
It kinda makes my life a drag, drag, drag
Baby, since I've been loving you
I'm about to lose, I'm about lose to my worried mind

I just want more chanced woman
Since I've been loving
I wanna move my worried mind

Out of the tiles

As I walk down the highway, all I do is sing a 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, it's oh, so strong

Just a simple guy, and live from day to day
A ray of sunshine melts my frown, blows my blues away
There's nothin' more that I can say
But on a day like today, I'll pass the time away
And walk a quiet mile with you

All I need from you is all your l-love
All you gotta give to me is all your love
All I need from you is all your love
All you gotta give to me is all your love
Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah

I'm so glad I'm livin', (stop), gonna tell the world I am
I got me a fine woman and she says that I'm her man
A-one thing that I know for sure
Gonna give her all the lovin' like nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody can

Standin' in the noon-day sun tryin' 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 race
The best thing I can do is run

All I need from you is all your love
All you gotta give to me, all your love
All I need from you is all your love
All you gotta give to me is all your love
Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, hey

Aw, yeah, aw, yeah, aw, yeah
Oh, just remember said you'd be my one
All I really said was 'be my one'
Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah
Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah
Ah-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah, yeah, yeah
Ah-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah, yeah, yeah

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!

Ah-ha-ha
Swingin'
Swingin' on the gallows pole!
See-saw marjory daw
See-saw knock at my door

Tangerine

Measuring a summer's day,
I only finds it slips away to grey,
The hours, they bring me pain.

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.

Tangerine, Tangerine,
Living reflection from a dream
I was her love, she was my queen,
And now a thousand years between.

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,
ould it be you've found another game to play,
What did mama say to me.

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.
Mama said, mama said...
That's the way it's gonna stay, yeah

 
Bron-y-aur stomp

Ah, I caught you smilin' 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 sung love songs so glad
Always smilin', never sad, so fine

As we walk down the country lanes
I'll be singin' a song, you hear me callin' your name
Hear the wind whisper in the trees
Tellin' Mother Nature 'bout you and me

Well, if the sun shines so bright, or our way is dark as night
The road we choose is always right, so fine
Ah, could any 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?

As we walk down the country lanes
I'm singin' a song, hear me callin' your name
Hear the wind whisper in the trees
Tellin' Mother Nature 'bout a-you and me

My, my, law-de-law, 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 missin', messin' around them brick walls

So, of one thing I am sure, it's a friendship so pure
Angels singin' all 'round my door, so fine
Yeah, ain't but one thing to do, spend my natural 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 walkin' down country lanes
I'll sing the same old song, hear me call your name

*** Thanx a lot to Jamon who corrected some mistakes ***

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
Mmm 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
Mmm baby, where I come from, whoa whoa

It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
Ah, ah, ah

Oh, it seems so long since we walked in the moonlight
Makin' vows that just couldn't work right
Haw yeah, open your arms, open your arms, open your arms
Baby, let my love come running in, yeah

It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

Yeah hey, yeah hey, yeah hey, yeah hey
Ooh yeah, ooh ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh ooh yeah
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ahhh.
Ah, yeah!

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 below,
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 ringwraiths 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.

Oh, bring it back, bring it back...

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.

Oh, it makes me wonder,
Oh, 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 stand 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 everything 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.

*** Thanx a lot to Sophie & Lisa & Vanda who corrected this one ***

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.

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, 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.

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?

Going to California

Spend my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine
Made up my mind, make a new start
Goin' to California with an achin' 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 'em tell you that they're aw-ooh-all the same
Hoh, the sea was red and the sky was grey
I wonder how tomorrow could ever follow today-hee
Mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake
The children of the sun begin to awake
Now
Watch out

It seems that the wrath of the gods got a punch on the nose
And it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinkin'
Throw me a line, if I reach it in time
Meet you up there where the path runs straight and high

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
Standin' on a hill in the mountain of dreams
Tellin' 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
It's 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 got no work to do
If you're going down to Chicago.

A-ah, a-ah, a-ah.

Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good
No, cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move, ooh.

All last night sat on the levee and moaned
All last night sat on the levee and moaned
Thinkin' 'bout my baby and my happy home
Ah-oh.

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Goin'
I'm goin' to Chicago
Goin' to Chicago
Sorry, but I can't take you, ahhh
Goin' down, goin' down now
Goin' down, goin' down now
Goin' down, goin' down
Goin' down, goin' down.

Goin' down, goin' down now
Goin' down, goin' down now
Goin' down, goin' down now
Goin' down, goin' down-down-down-down-down.

Houses of the holy

The song remains the same
 
I had a dream,
oh, now,
Crazy dream, ohh-ohh
Anything I wanted to know,
Any place I needed to go

Hear my song, now,
People, don't you listen, now
Sing along,
You don't know what you're missin', now
Any little song that you know
Everything that's small has to grow
And so it grows, yeah, push, push, yeah-ah

Na-na-na-na-na-ah-ah
California sunlight
Sweet Calcutta rain
Honolulu starbright
The song remains the same
Ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh-hohh-ohh

Head-on
Keep on

All you got to do, all the night
All you, all you gotta do now,
All you gotta do now, ooh with me

Sing out Hare, Hare
Ooh, dance the Hoochie-Koo
City lights are oh, so bright
As we go slidin', slidin'
Slidin', slidin', slidin' slidin' slidin' slidin'
Slidin-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah on.

The rain song

It 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 recognize
These things are clear to all from time to time.

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

These are the seasons of emotion
and like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion
I seek the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient
Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall...
It's just a little rain...

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, youve got so much

Many times I loved
Many times been bitten
Many times Ive gazed
Along the open road

Many times Ive lied
Many times Ive listened
Many times Ive 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
Cant 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,

Dancing days

Dancing days are here again,
As the summer evenings grow.
I got my flower, I got my power,
I got a woman who knows.

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,
By the way you wearin' your clothes.
Sippin' booze is precedent,
As the evening starts to glow.

You know it's alright,
I said it's alright,
You know it's all in my heart.
You'll be my only,
My one and only,
Is that the way it should start?

Do You?

You told your mother I'd get you home,
But you didn't say that I got no car.
I saw a lion, he was standin' alone,
With a tadpole in a jar.

You know it's alright,
I said it's alright,
I guess it's all in my heart, heart, heart.
You'll be my only,
My one and only,
Is that the way it should start?

So dancing days are here again,
As the summer evenings grow.
You are my flower, you are my power,
You are my woman who knows.

I said it's alright,
You know it's alright,
You know it's all in my heart.
You'll be my only, yes
My one and only, yes
Is that the way it should start?
I know it isn't.

D'yer mak'er

Oh oh oh oh oh oh, You don't have to go oh oh oh oh oh

No quarter

Close the door, put out the light
Y' know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know
The winds of Thor are blowin' cold.
They're wearin' steel that's bright and true,
They carry news that must get through
They choose the path where no-one goes.
They hold no quarter,
They hold no quarter.

Ahh-ah~ahh~ah~ahh-hahhh-hahhh.
Walkin' 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 howlin' 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.

They hold no quarter.
They ask no quarter.
The pain without quarter.
The pain, the pain without quarter.
They ask no quarter

The ocean

(We've done four already but now we're steady and then they went: One, two, three, four)

Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain
Hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain
Ain't no time to pack my bag, my foots outside the door
Got a date, I can't be late, for the high hopes hailla ball.
'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. Sure is fine. I blow my mind.
And the tears all go away now.
Yeah yeah
Do wop a diddly diddly........
Oh, so good!

*** Thanx a lot to StyxNC who corrected a mistake on this one ***

The rover

I've been to London, seen seven wonders
I know to trip is just to fall
I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it
I always knew what it was for

There can be no denyin' that the wind'll shake 'em down
And the flag we're flyin' is the new flag of the land
Just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join

With fields aplenty when Heaven sent me
I saw the kings who ruled them all
Still by the firelight and purple moonlight
I hear the rustic river's call

And the wind is cryin' from a love that won't grow cold
My lover, she is lyin' on the dark side of the globe

Could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Do it, ow

Darlin', tell me, darlin', which way to go
Keep me rockin' baby, can you keep me strollin'
Won'tcha tell me, darlin', which way to go, that's right

Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry
and I would dearly like to know
How all this squander of earthly plunder
Will leave us anything to show

And our time is flyin'
See the candle burnin' low
Is the new world risin'
from the shambles of the old

If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just, if we could just
If we could just, if we could just
If we could just join hands, hey

That's all it takes, that's all it takes
That's all it takes, that's all it takes
Hey-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah

Houses of the holy

Let me take you to the movies.
Can I take you to the show
Let me be yours ever truly.
Can I make your garden grow

From the houses of the holy,
we can watch the white doves go
From the door comes Satan's daughter,
and it only goes to show. You know.

There's an angel on my shoulder,
In my hand a sword of gold
Let me wander in your garden.
And the seeds of love I'll sow.
You know.

So the world is spinning faster.
Are you dizzy when you stall?
Let the music be your master.
Will you heed the master's call
Oh... Satan man.

Said there ain't no use in crying.
Cause it will only, only drive you mad
Does it hurt to hear them lying?
Was this the only world you had? Oh-oh

So let me take you, take you to the movie.
Can I take you, baby, to the show.
Why don't you let me be yours ever truly.
Can I make your garden grow
You know.

Trampled under foot

Grease me straight down, good electric

Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout
Ooh, trouble-free transmission, helps your oil's flow
Mama, let me pump your gas, mama, let me do it all

Automobile club-covered, really built in style
Special is tradition, mama, let me feast my eyes
Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout
Factory air-conditioned, wind begins to rise
Guaranteed to run for hours, mama, and brand-new tires
Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout
Groovin' on the freeway, blazes on the road
From now on my gasoline is even gonna conk your hair
Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout
I can't stop talkin' about, I can't stop talkin' about
Ooh, yeah-yeah, yes, ah, drive on
Ooh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yes, I'm comin' through
Come to me for service every hundred miles
Baby, let me check your valves, fix your overdrive
Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout
Ooh, yes, fully automatic, comes in any size
Makes me wonder what I did, before I got synchronized
Talkin' 'bout lo-ove, Talkin' 'bout love, Talkin' 'bout

Kashmir

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
with stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space to be where I have been
To sit with elders of a gentle race this world has seldom seen
who talk of days for which they sit and wait
When all will be revealed

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace
Sounds caress my ear
Though not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear, whoa-oh-hoh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh

Oooh, oh, baby, I've been flyin' No, yeah
Mama cares, ain't no denyin'
Oh, oooh yes, I've been flyin'
My mama, ain't no denyin', no denyin', no

Oh, all I see turns to brown as the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand as I scan this wasted land
Tryin' to find, tryin' to find where I've been, ah-ah, ah-ah

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
like thoughts inside a dream
who hid the path that led me to that place
with yellow desert screen
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again
sure as the dust that blows high in June
when movin' through Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails
Across the sea of years
with no provision but an open face along the straits of fear
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh-hoh, oh, ohh

Whoa, when I'm on, when I'm on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way you stay, yeah-eah
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I'm down, oh
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I'm down, so down
Ooh, my baby, ooh, my baby, let me take you there
Oh, oh, come on, come on, oh, let me take you there
Let me take you there, woo, yeah-yeah, woo, yeah-yeah
Let me take you there
let me take you there

In the light

And if you feel that you can't go on
And your will's sinkin' low
Just believe and you can't go wrong
In the light you will find the road, you will find the road.

Hey, ooh, did you ever believe that I could leave you
Standing out in the cold?
Hey, yeah, baby, I know how it feels 'cause I have slipped through
To the very depths of my soul, yeah.
Oh-whoa, baby, I just wanna show what I'd give you
It is from every bend in the road
Now listen to me
Oh, whoa-whoa, as I was and really would be for you, too, honey
As you would for me,
Oh, I would share your load
Let me share your load
Ooh, let me share, share your load.

And if you feel that you can't go on
In the light you will find the road.

Hey, oh, though the winds of change may blow around you,
But that will always be so
Oh, whoa, whoa, when love is pain, it can devour you
If you are never alone
I would share your load
I would share your load
Baby, let me, oh, let me

In the light
Everybody needs the light, ooh, yeah-yeah
Ooh, baby, everybody, everybody, everybody
Sure 'nuff they do.

Light, light, light, in the light
Light, light, light, in the light, ooh, yeah
Light, light, light, in the light.

Light, light, light, in the light
Light, light, light, in the light, ooh, yeah-yeah
Light, light, light, in the light
Everybody, come on now...

Down by the seaside

Down by the seaside
See the boats go sailin'
Can the people hear, oh
What the little fish are sayin'?

Oh, oh, people turned away
Ah, people turned away.

Down in the city streets
See all the folk go racin', racin'
No time left, no-no
To pass the time of day.

Yea-yea-yeah, ah,
People turned away
People turned away
So far away, so far away.

See how they run, see how they run,
See how they run, see how they run.

Do you still do the twist?
Do you find you remember things that well?
I wanna tell you
Some go twistin' every day
Though sometimes it's awful hard to tell
Ah-huh, ah-huh, ah-huh, oh.

Out in the country
Hear the people singin',
Singin' 'bout their progress,
Knowin' where they're goin'
Yeah, yeah.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, people turned away
Yeah, people turned away.

Sing loud for the sunshine,
Pray hard for the rain
And show your love for Lady Nature
And she will come back again
Yes, she will, yes, she will.

Oh, oh, oh, people turned away
The people turned away.

Don't they know that they're goin'?

Ten years gone

Then as it was, then again it will be
An' though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea
Blind stars of fortune, each have several rays
On the wings of maybe, down in birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to grow
But as the eagle leaves the nest, it's got so far to go

Changes fill my time, baby, that's alright with me
In the midst I think of you, and how it used to be

Did you ever really need somebody, And really need 'em bad
Did you ever really want somebody, The best love you ever had
Do you ever remember me, baby, did it feel so good
'Cause it was just the first time, And you knew you would

Dewy eyes now sparkle, Senses growing keen
Taste your love along the way, See your feathers preen
Kind of makes makes me feel sometimes, Didn't have to grow
We are eagles of one nest, The nest is in our soul

Vixen in my dreams, with great surprise to me
Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be
Oh darlin', oh darlin'
I'm never gonna leave you. I never gonna leave
Holdin' on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone

Night flight

I received a message from my brother across the water
He sat laughin' as he wrote the end's in sight
So I said goodbye to all my friends
And packed my hopes inside a matchbox
'Cause I know it's time to fly.

Oh-oh-oh, yeah, come on, meet me in the morning,
Meet me in the middle of the night
Ah-oh, yeah, the morning light is comin'
Don't it make you wanna go and feel alright?

I just jumped a train that never stops,
So now somehow I'll know I never finished payin' for my ride
Someone pushed a gun into my hand
Tell me I'm the type of man
To fight the fight that I'll require.

Oh-oh-oh, yeah, ha, come on, meet me in the morning
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night? Yeah
Ho, well, the morning light is comin'
Well, don't it make you wanna kinda feel alright?

Oh, mama, well, I think it's time I'm leavin'
Nothin' here to make me stay
Whoa, mama, well, it must be time I'm goin'
They're knockin' down them doors
They're tryin' to take me away.

Please Mr. Brakeman, won't you ring your bell
And ring loud and clear?
Please Mr. Fireman, won't you ring your bell?
Tell the people they got to fly away from here.

Oh, I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby
Southern lady, have a very, very special smile
We are in the middle of a change in destination
When the train stops, all together we will smile.

Oh-oh-oh, come one, come on now, meet me in the mornin',
Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, na-na-night-night?
Ho-ho-yeah, everybody know the mornin' time is comin'
Don't it make you wanna a-feel alright?

Ah, ah, yeah, a-make me feel alright, fly now, baby
I gotta fly, yeah, fly now, baby.

The wanton song

Silent woman, in the night you came
Took my seed from my shaking frame
Same old fire, yeah, another flame
And the wheel rolls on

Silent woman, through the flames you come
From the deep behind the sun
It's my nightmares, my lovin' done
Left me barely holding on

With blazin' eyes see my tremblin' hand
When we know the time has come
Lose my senses, lose command
Feel your healin' rivers run

Is it every time I fall
That I think this is the one
Ooh, in the darkness can you hear me call
Another day has just begun, another day, yeah

Silent woman, my face has changed
Some know ways to come
Feel my fire needs a brand new flame
And the wheel rolls on
Rolls on, rolls on, rolls on, ah

Boogie with stu

Black country woman

Shall we roll it, Jimmy?
We're rolling on, uh -- what, one? No.
One again.
I'm tryin' to get this airplane off.
Nah, leave it, yeah.

Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to tell me that you love me so
You didn't have to love me, mama, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to make me a total disgrace
You didn't have to leave me with that beer in my face
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
Uh, that's alright, it's awful doggone clear

Hey, hey, baby, why you treat me mean
Oh, oh, baby, why you treat me mean
Aw, baby
You didn't have to crucify me like you did
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid
Hey, hey, mama, why'd you treat me mean
You didn't have to say you'd always be by my side
You didn't have to tell me you'd be my blushin' bride
Hey, hey, mama, why you treat me mean
But that's alright, I know your sisters too
(Aw, yeah)

You didn't have to tell me that you love me so
You didn't have to leave me, mama, let me go
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
You didn't have to leave me like a total disgrace
You didn't have to leave me with that beer on my face
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
Oh, but that's alright, I'd be the same way too
Oh, yeah-yo, go, man, go

Now, my baby, now, you didn't have to crucify me like you did
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to tell me you would be my own
You didn't have to tell me, "Baby, let me go"
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you
Ah, that's alright, I know your sister too

Oh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah, oh
What's the matter with you, mama

Sick again

From the window of a rented limousine,
I caught your pretty blue eyes.
One day soon you're gonna' reach sixteen,
Painted lady in the city of lies.

Ooh, do you, know my name?
Do I, look the same?
You know I'm the one you want, baby,
I must be the one you need, yeah!

Clutchin' pages from your teenage dream,
In the lobby of the Hotel Paradise.
Through the circus of the L.A. queens,
How fast you learn the downhill slide.

Oh, how you, play the game.
Still don't, know your name.
You know I'm the one you want, baby,
Whooh, yes, I got to be the one you need, need, need, need,
yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah.

Oh, you got to tell me.

Just a minute, just a minute.
Lips like cherries, and the brow of a queen,
Come on, flash across your eyes.
Said you dug me since you were thirteen,
Then you giggle as you heav an' sigh.

Ooh, do 'you, know my name,
Do I, look the same?
Baby, I got to tell you, I'm the one you want,
And everybody knows I'm the one you need, yeah-yeah.

Oh, get it, get it
Come on now
Come on now
Come on now

Hours, hours, with the moments in between,
Oh, baby, how the time flies? I couldn't count the times,
The thought of comin', and the pain in leavin'.
Oh, baby, dry those silver eyes

Oh, do you, know my name?

Do I, look the same?
You know I'm the one you want,
Whoo-ooh, ye-yes, I'm the one you need, yeah-yeah!

Ooh, that's right!
Ooh, yeah, that's right!
Ooh, that's right!
That's right.
That's right.
Oooh, yeah, that's right.
That's right.

Presence

Achilles last stand

It was an April morning when they told us we should go
As I turn to you, you smiled at me
How could we say no?

With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had
Oh, the songs to sing, when we at last return again

Sending off a glancing kiss, to those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss,
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.

Into the sun the south the north, at last the birds have flown
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 as we fought 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.

Days went by when you and I, bathed in eternal summers glow
As far away and distant, Our mutual child did grow

Oh the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

Wandering & wandering, 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 earth...

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way
I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Oh the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth.

For your life

You said I was the only, with my lemon in your hand (uh-oh, uh-oh)
Exhibition is your habit - emotion second hand (uh-oh, uh-oh)
Had to pull away to save me - maybe next time around
And she said: Don't you wanna - don't you wanna cocai-cocai-cocaine?
Hadn't planned to - could not stand to try it, fry it (na na na na yeah)

Heard a cry for mercy in the city of the damned (uh-oh, baby, damn)
In the pits you go no lower - the next stop's underground (hello underground)
Your wine and roses ain't quite over - fate deals a losing hand
And I said: didn't mean to - did not mean to fail
You didn't plan it - you over-ran it

You wanna do it - you wanna do it when you wanna
You wanna do it - wanna do it - do it when you wanna

When you blow it, baby, you got to blow it right
Oh, if you fake it, mama; baby, fake with all your might
When you fake it, mama, please fake it right (for yourself, baby)
When you f-f-f-fake it, baby, you're fakin' it for your life
For your life, for your life, for your life

Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it when you wanna
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it when you wanna

Oh, I can have you, baby, But I don't know what to do, yeah
Sometime, baby, nothin' I could do

On the balance of the crystal - payin' through the nose
And when they couldn't resist you, I thought you'd go with the flow.
And now your stage is empty, bring down the curtain, baby please.
Fold up your show

Hadn't planned to, Could not stand to fry in it
Hadn't planned it, I over-ran it, (fryin)
For your life, For your life.


Royal Orleans

One-time love,
Take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night
And if you take your pick,
Be careful how you choose it
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite.

Feel it bite.

A man I know
Went down to Louisiana,
Had himself a bad, bad fight
And when the sun peeked through
John Cameron with Suzanna,
He kissed the whiskers, left and right.

Whiskers!

Now, now, now, fright subsides
Out at a hotel in the quarter,
Our friends check in to pass the night
Now love gets hot,
But fire preceded water
Poor whiskers set the room alight.

Whiskers!

Down on Bourbon Street,
You know, it's right
You can see, my friend,
They run around all through the night
Most everywhere
Until the closet's bare
Run for the razor fun
Doin' up my hair.

New Orleans queens
Sure know how to schmooze it
Maybe for some that seems alright
When I step out,
strut down with my sugar
She'd best not talk like Barry White!

Now one town love,
Take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night
Take your pick
Be careful how you choose it
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite, ah.


Nobody's fault but mine

Oh, nobody's fault but mine, yeah
Nobody's fault but mine, yeah
Trying to save my soul to light
Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine

Devil he told me to roll-ah
The devil he told me to roll-oll-oll-oll
How to roll the line tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

Brother, show me the door
Brother, show me the ding dong ding dong
I will get down rolling tonight
Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine

Gotta monkey on my back
The m-m-m-m-monkey on my back, back, back, back
Gonna change my ways tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

I will get down rolling tonight
Nobody's fault but mine


Candy store rock

Well... Oh baby baby. Don't you want a man like me?
Oh baby baby, I'm just as sweet as anybody could be
Oh baby baby, I want to look to your eyes, of blue
Oh baby baby, It's more than anybody else could do

Well... Oh baby baby. You know when I see you walkin down the street
Oh baby baby, Well you lookin good enough to eat
Oh baby baby, I dont believe I've tasted this before
Oh baby baby, I want it now
And every mouthfull more of you.

Talk about you, Yeah.

Oh baby baby, You know that I wanted it more
Oh baby baby, I'm about to kiss goodbye to this store
Oh baby baby, It ain't the wrapping that sells the goods
Oh baby baby, I got a sweet tooth when my mouth is full of you.

Ooh baby oh baby its alright, its alright
Ohh baby its alright... its alright

Well, oh baby, baby, oh you sting like a bee
Oh baby, baby, I like your honey and it sure likes me
Oh baby, baby, I got my spoon inside your jar
Oh baby, baby, don't give me too much, don't make me starve

Oh baby, baby, sugar sister on a silver plate
Oh baby, baby, I need a mouthful and I just can't wait
Oh baby, baby, see the shaking in my hand
Oh baby, baby, don't mean to fumble but it tastes so grand
Tastes so grand, tastes so grand, baby it's alright

Oh baby it's alright, oh it's alright
It's alright... (repeat)

Hots on for nowhere

I was burned in the heat of the moment
No, it coulda been the heat of the day
When I learned how my time had been wasted,
Dear fellows, I turned away.

Now I've got friends who will give me their shoulder
When I should happen to fall
The timing is right growin' older
I've got friends who will give me fuck fall.

La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la na na, my baby
La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la la.

The corner of Bleeker and nowhere
In the land of not quite day
A shiver runs down my backbone
Face in the mirror turns grey.

So I looked 'round to hitch up the reindeer
Searching hard trying to brighten the day
I turned around to look for the snowman
To my surprise he'd melted away, yeah.

La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la na na, my baby
La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la la.

As the moon and the stars call the order
Inside my tides dance the ebb and sway
The sun in my soul's sinking lower
While the hope in my hands turns to clay.

I don't ask that my field's full of clover
I don't moan at opportunity's door
And if you ask my advice, take it slower
Then your story'd be your finest reward.

La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la na na, my baby
La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la la
Now do it.

Lost on the path to attainment
Search in the eyes of the wise
When I bled from the heart of the matter
I started bleeding without a disguise.

Now everything's fine under heaven
Now and then you've got to take time to pause
When you're down on the ground, don't be messin' around
You can land in a boat without oars.

La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la na na, my baby
La la la la la la, yeah,
La la la la la la.

Hey, babe, oh, hey, babe, oh, hey, babe,
I lost my way.

Hey, babe, oh, hey, babe, oh,
I really, really did.

Hey, babe, oh, hey, babe, oh,
I don't know where I'm gonna find it.

Hey, babe, oh, hey, babe, oh,
Do you wanna know?
Do you really, really wanna help me, yeah?

Let me tell you now, babe
Oh, let me tell you, oh
That it feels so good, that it must be right.

Come on, babe
Oh, let me tell you
If it feels so good, then it must be right.

Come on, babe
Oh, let me tell you, oh
If it feels, if it feels, if it feels, if it feels
So good, oh, so good, oh, so good
Oh, yes.

Tea for one

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days?
Oh twenty-four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way
Sittin, lookin at the clock, time moves so slow
I've been watchin for the hands to move
Until I just can't look no more
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seems to slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way.

To sing a song for you, I recall you used to say
"Oh baby this one's for we two", Which in the end is you anyway

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way.

There was a time that I stood tall, In the eyes of other men
But by my own choice I left you woman, And now I can't get back again

How come twenty-four hours, sometimes slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way
A minute seems like a lifetime
When I feel this way... I feel this way

In through the out door

In the evening

In the evening
When the day is done,
I'm looking for a 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 gotta have.

So don't you let her,
Oh, get under your skin
It's only bad luck and trouble,
Oh, from the day that you begin
I hear you crying in the darkness,
No, don't ask nobody's help
Oh, ain't no pockets full of mercy baby,
'Cause you can only blame yourself.

Oh, I need your love
Oh, oh, I need your love
Ooh, yeah, I need your love
I've gotta have.

Ooh, it's simple
All the pain that you go through
You can turn away from fortune, fortune, fortune,
'Cause that's all that's left to you
Hey, it's lonely at the bottom
Man, it's dizzy at the top
But if you're standing in the middle, oh,
Ain't no way you're gonna stop.

Oh, baby
Oh, oh, I need your love
Oh, oh, I need your love
Oh, oh, I need your love
I've got to have.

Ooh, whatever
That your days may bring
No use hiding in a corner, oh, no
'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 a lot, oh.

Oh, I need your love
Oh, oh, I need your love
Ooh, yeah, I need your love,
I've got to have, I've got to have.

Baby, I've got to have your love
I've got to have
Oh, baby, I've got to have your love, whoa
Oh, oh, oh, oh, I've got to have your love
Just got, I've just got
I've just got to have your love
Oh, oh, oh...

Fool in the rain

Oh baby

Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shinin'
Like a star that can't wait for night.
I hate to think I been blinded baby.
Why can't I see you tonight?
An' the warmth of your smile starts a burnin'
An' the thrill of your touch give me fright
And I'm shakin' so much, really yearnin'.
Why don't you show up and make it alright-yeah?
It's alright-right.

And if you promised you'd love so completely
An' you said you would always be true
You swore that you never would leave me baby
Whatever happened to you?
An' you thought it was only in movies
As you wish all your dreams would come true, hey.
It ain't the first time believe me baby
I'm standin' here feelin' blu_e, blue-hah!.
Baby I'm blue.

Oh babe

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner
I watch the people go shufflin' downtown.
A-nother ten minutes no longer
An' then I'm turnin' around 'round.
An' the clock on the wall's movin' slower
Oh my heart it sinks to the ground
An' the storm that I thought would blow over
Clouds the light of the love that I found, found.

Light of the love that I found.
Light of the love that I found.
Oh that I found.

Hey babe.

Oooh hand that ticks on the clock
Just don't seem to stop
When I'm thinking it over.

Oooh tired of the light
I just don't seem to find.
Have you wait, yeah played.

Whoah oooh, I see it in my dreams
But I just don't seem to be with you, you
I gotta get it all, gotta get it all, gotta get it all
I've got to get all.

Ooh now my body is starting to quiver
An' the palms of my hands gettin' wet oh.
I got no reason to doubt you baby
It's all a terrible mess.
An' I'll run in the rain 'til I'm breathless
When I'm breathless I'll run 'til I drop, hey!
An' the thoughts of a fool's gotta count
I'm just a fool waitin' on the wrong block ohh-yeah.
Hey now. Ohhhhoh hohh.
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I ...
Light of the love that I found
Light of the hey now
Light of the hey now
Light of the love that I found
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 finally did sit 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 seventeen
A little late these days it seems
But they said heaven is well worth waiting for
I took her word I took it all
Beneath the sign that said U-haul
She left angels hangin round for more
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 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
Oh yeah, 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.

Ah, ah, ah, ah.

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 everything is soon no sooner thought than deed,
But no one seemed to question in anyway.

Ah, ah, ah, ah.

How keen the storied 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?
And to fall to fate and make the 'status plan'
And the Lord there in heaven would never preach.

I'm singin',
Ah, ah, ah, ah.

Where was your word, where did you go?
Where was your helping, where was your bow? Bow.

Dull is the armor, 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,
Another day-ay, 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.

They had to stay!

Held now within the knowing,
Rest now within the beat.
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed.

Oh, take of the fruit, but guard the seed.

All my love

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
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
Oh, 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.

Oh, all of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love for you now
All of my love, all of my love
Yes, all of my love to you, child.

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.

Oh, all of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now
All of my love, oh-oh
Yes, all of my love to you now.

All of my love, all of my love
All of my love, love
Sometimes, sometimes, alright
Sometimes, sometimes, oh, all
Hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey
Ooh, ooh, yeah,
It's, all, all, all, all, all of my love, all of my love
All of my love to you now
All of my love, all of my love
All of my love
To, to you and you and you and you and yeah
I get a little bit lonely, just a little, just a little
Just a little bit lonely, just a little bit lonely
Hey, hey, hey, hey...


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, every little bit
Every little bit of my love
I give to you, girl
Every little bit, every little bit
Every little bit, every little bit of my love.

Hit me!

I don't have to go by plane
I ain't gotta 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'm gonna crawl
Ah, hooh-hooh

Poor Tom

Here's a tale of Tom
Who worked the rivers run
His wife would cook his meals,
As he would check the wheels.

Singin' poor Tom, Seventh Son,
Always knew what's goin on.

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
And there ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom.

He worked for thirty years
Sharin' hopes 'n' fears
Dreamin' of the day
He could turn and say

Poor Tom, work's gone,
Lazin' out in the noonday sun.

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
And there ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom.

His wife was Emmie May
One of many games she played
When Tom was out of town,
She couldn't keep her dresses down.

A-poor Tom, Seventh Son,
Always knew what's goin on.

Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
And there ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom.

And so it was one day
People got to Emmie May
A-Tom took a gun in his hand
And stopped all the runnin' around.

Poor Tom, Seventh Son,
Gotta die for what you've done.

All those years of work are thrown away.
To ease your mind, is that all you can say?
But what about that grandson on your knee?
And then wrote songs as well as he could be.

Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
And there ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
And there ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
And there ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom.

Hey
Keep-a truckin',
Keep-a truckin'
Yeah.


Walter's walk

Oh, know I feel's so strange lookin' at the door
Ah-oh, tryin' hard to change and can't let go
Oh, cryin' tears of pain hurtin' more an' more
Oh, every day's the same as you walk the floor.

I'm walkin' the floor over you
I'm walkin' the floor.

Every heart that breaks is a heart that's cold
Oh, to the hand that takes your dreamless soul
Ah, is it long to wait, is there much to pay?
Oh-ah, sometimes it's hard waitin' the day.

You know, it's hard, I said it's hard, you know, it's true
I said it's hard, you know, it's hard, still know it's true.

Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost.
When you hear the call, can you count the cost?
And you stand alone, do you wonder how?
Can you step aside; does it matter now?

Every love that's changed (every love that's changed)
Spend it fully (spend it fully)
In the eyes of the night (in the eyes of the night),
Was it hard to see (was it hard to see)?
If it never fails (if it never), in spite of it all (all),
So you hide in the tears, enter Walter's walk.

Know it's true now
You know, it's true now, woo, yeah.

I'm walkin' the floor over you
I'm walking the floor.

Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost.
When you hear the call, can you count the cost?
As you stand alone, do you wonder how?
Can you step aside? Does it matter now?

Does it matter now?
Does it?
Now does it matter?
Now does it matter?

Ooh, yeah!
Ooh, yeah!
Ooh, little baby, don't you know?

Every tear that falls, does it matter now?
Does it matter now? Oh, yeah!
Oh, yeah! Oh, yes! Oh, yes!

Now listen: You say your body's aching?
I know that it's aching
Chill bumps come up on you

Feel a change is good for you
When you keep convincin'
