Stairway To Heaven  Led Zeppelin

[C]        [G]        [Am]                     
Verse 1:
[C]There’s a lady w[D]ho’s sure,
All that glitter[F]s is gold.      [Am]
And she’s buying[C] a Stairway to H[G]eaven.          [Am]
When she gets th[C]ere she knows,    [D]
If the store[F]s are all closed,   [Am]
With a word[C] she can get what she[G] came for.         [Am]
And she’s buying[C] a Stairway to H[G]eaven.      [Am]

Little part between verses:
[C]        [G]        [Am]                     
Verse 2:

[C]There’s a sign o[D]n the wall,
But she wants[F] to be [Am]sure.
‘Cause you know [C]sometimes words have two[G] meanings.      [Am]
In a tre[C]e by the brook, [D]
There’s a songbi[F]rd who sings,   [Am]
Sometimes all of[C] our thoughts ar[G]e misgiven.     [Am]

Bridge 1:

[Am7/G]And it [Am7]makes[D/E] me w[D]onder...
				Am7/G  Am7  Em-D-C-D

And it makes me wonder...

Verse 3:

[C]There’s a f[Am7]eeling I get,
When I look[Am] to the West.
And my spiri[C]t is crying [G]for leaving.    [Am]
In my though[C]ts I have seen,     [Am7]

Rings of smoke t[Am]hrough the trees,
And the voices o[C]f those wh[G]o stand looking.      [Am]
Bridge 1

Verse 4:

And it’s whisper[C]ed that soon,   [Am7]
If we al[Am]l call the tune,
Then the piper w[C]ill lead us [G]to reason.     [Am]
And a ne[C]w day will dawn,   [Am7]
For thos[Am]e who stand long,
And the forests [C]will echo with l[G]aughter.        [Am]

Bridge 2:


Over chords: Am G F G
Ad lib

Verse 5:

[Am]And as we wind o[G]n down the road,        [F]        [G]
[Am]Our shadows taller [G]than our souls,      [F]        [G]
[Am]There walks a lady w[G]e all know,         [F]        [G]
[Am]Who shines white light a[G]nd wants to show,       [F]        [G]
[Am]How everything s[G]till turns to gold.       [F]      [G]
[Am]And if you liste[G]n very hard,    [F]        [G]
[Am]The tune will come [G]to you at last.      [F]        [G]
[Am]To be a rock[G] and not a roll.    [F]

And she’s buying a Stairway to Heaven.

Little “finishing-touch” solo

NOTE: These are not the same chords a single guitarist will be playing. This was
all done using the harmonics of each chord. So if someone tells you, “You’re
playing it wrong,” tell them to play along and it will match. I promise.
That should just about do it. If you’re a rhythm player and you don’t wanna be
left out when the band starts playing this song, then this is for you. I didn’t
tab the solos because I play lead guitar and I wouldn’t want anybody just copying
my solos. It’s not fair to take those from Jimmy Page. They’re a part of him
and he’s a part of them. So I’ll leave that to the imagination (after all, it’s
always improvised anyway).
