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

zombie_arson (report comment to admin):
the strings have to be tuned to DADGAD. there are other tiny errors but that wuz the main one

zombie_arson (report comment to admin):
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 comment to admin):
in Riff 2. instead of doin' the declineing notes twice do it once. it's how it shuld be.
zombie_arson (report comment to admin):
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 comment to admin):
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
