Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I'm a traveller of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Talk in song from tongues of lilting grace
Sounds caress my ear
And not a word I heard could I relate
The story was quite clear

Ooh, baby, I been blind
Oh, yeah, mama, there ain't no denyin'
Oh, ooh yes, I been blind
Mama, mama, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

All I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this wasted land
Can I find, can I find where I've been

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like sorts inside a dream
Leave the path the led me to that place
Yellow desert stream
Like Shangri-la beneath the summer moon
I will return again
As the dust that floats finds you
Will move and search Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds fill my sails
Cross the sea of years
With no provision but an open face
Along the straits of fear

Oh, when I want, when I'm on my way, yeah
And my feet wear my fickle way to stay
Ooh, yeah yeah, ooh, yeah yeah, but I'm down
Ooh, yeah yeah, ooh, yeah yeah, but I'm down, so down
Ooh, my baby, oh, my baby
Let me take you there
Come on, oh let me take you there
Let me take you there

after the first two riffs the song gets real choppy. he also screwed up in that there is no second interlude and it never changes. lastly, he didn't put in the solo. i don't blame him it's hard as hell to TAB

zombie_arson (report)

I only post my comments because i have the original sheet music and TABS to this and all other Zeppelin songs in front of me right now

zombie_arson (report)

in Riff 2. instead of doin' the declineing notes twice do it once. it's how it shuld be.

zombie_arson (report)

the riff shuld go like this:

D----------------
A----------------
G-2-2-2--2-2-2---
D-0-0-0--0-0-0---
A-5-5-5--5-5-5---
D--------------0-

then repeat but replace the 2 on the G string to a 3. then repeat that replacing the 3 with the 4th fret. then move that same string to the fith fret, still using the same rythm. then the rest of Riff 1 is all off. it shuld go:

D----------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------
G-7-7-7--2-2-2----3-3-3--3-3-3-----------
D-0-0-0--0-0-0----0-0-0--0-0-0-----------
A-5-5-5--5-5-5----5-5-5--5-5-5-----------
D-------------0----------------0---------

and then the 3 ont he G string is switched to a 4. then that to a 5. then repeat the whole thing. that's all of Riff 1

zombie_arson (report)

the strings have to be tuned to DADGAD. there are other tiny errors but that wuz the main one
