Lyrics

Black Dog
04:55
Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove
Oh, oh, child, way you shake that thing, gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting
Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way, watch your honey drip, can't keep away

Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah
I gotta roll, can't stand still, got a flaming heart, can't get my fill
Eyes that shine burning red, dreams of you all through my head
Ah, ah, ah

Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby, tell me that you'll do me now
Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby, do me like you do me now
Didn't take too long 'fore I found out, what people mean by down and out
Spent my money, took my car, started telling her friends she's gonna be a star
I don't know but I been told, a big-legged woman ain't got no soul

Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah
I gotta roll, can't stand still, got a flaming heart, can't get my fill
Eyes that shine burning red, dreams of you all through my head
Ah, ah, ah

All I ask for when I pray, steady rollin' woman gonna come my way
Need a woman gonna hold my hand, won't tell me no lies, make me a happy man
Ah, ah, ah
Rock and Roll
03:41
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, 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, baby, where I come from
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

Seems so long since we walked in the moonlight
Making vows that just can't work right
Open your arms, opens your arms
Open your arms, baby, let my love come running in
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
The Battle of Evermore
05:52
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 morning 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
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 war is the common cry, pick up your 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 ring wraiths 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 morning 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
Stairway to Heaven
08:01
There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying the 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 the 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
Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, 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 the stairway to heaven
Misty Mountain Hop
04:39
Walking in the park just the other day, baby
What do you, what do you think I saw
Crowds of people sitting 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
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

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
I know that it's all a state of mind

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
I really don't know
Four Sticks
04:45
Oh baby, it's crying 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 feeling going 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
03:32
Spent my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine
Made up my mind to make a new start
Going to California with an aching 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 them tell you that they're all the same

The sea was red and the sky was grey
Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake

Seems that the wrath of the gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow
I think I might be sinking
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
I'll meet you up there where the path
Runs straight and high

To find a queen without a king
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings... la la la
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Trying to find a woman who's never, never, never been born
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams
Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems
When the Levee Breaks
07:07
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break
When the levee breaks, I'll have no place to stay

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
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 trying to find your way home
You don't know which way to go
If you're going down south
They go no work to do
If you don't know about Chicago

Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good
Now, crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move

All last night sat on the levee and moaned
All last night sat on the levee and moaned
Thinking about me, baby, and my happy home

Going, going to Chicago, going to Chicago
Sorry, but I can't take you
Going down, going down now, going down
