Stairway to Heaven

Led Zeppelin

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
 Oh___ oh____ 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 her 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
         Oh___ it makes me wonder                      
 Oh___ 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 the new day will dawn for those who stand long
and the forest will echo with laughter

If theres a bristle in your hedgerow dont 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

Your head is humming and it wont go in case you dont know
the pipers calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow and did you know
your stairway lies on the whispering wind


For the solo and the remaining lyrics use a Am G F G barre chord sequence


And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks the lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to know
how everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
the time 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

Looking at this in C uke tuning, I believe the 2nd chord is wrong. From Am I think it goes to E not G#+

E chord can be, but i like G#+ more.
