Stairway to Heaven    

 


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.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall,
But she wants to be sure,
Because 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.
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.
It 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 a stairway to heaven.

 


1. Black Dog    


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.

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.

Hey baby,
Oh baby,
Pretty baby.

Hey baby,
Oh baby,
Pretty baby.

Didn't take too long before I found out,
What people mean by down and out.
Spent my money took my car,
Started tellin' her friends she gonna be a star.
I don't know but I been told,
A big legged woman ain't got no soul.

All I ask for when I pray,
Steady rollin' woman gonna come my way.
Need a woman gonna hold my hand,
And tell me no lies make me a happy man.

Gonna give you my love.

3. The Lemon Song

   
I should have quit you,
Long time ago.
Yeah,
Long time ago.
I wouldn't be here, my children,
Down on this killing floor.

I should have listened baby,
To my second mind.
I should have listened baby,
To my second mind.
Every time I go away and leave you darling,
You send me the blues way down the line.

Treat me right baby.
People telling me baby,
Can't be satisfied.
They try to worry me baby,
But they never hurt you in my eyes.
Said people worry,
I can't keep you satisfied.
Let me tell you baby,
You ain't nothing but a two-bit no-good jive.

Went to sleep last night,
Worked as hard as I can.
Bring home my money,
You take my money give it to another man.
I should have quit you baby,
Such a long time ago.
I wouldn't be here with all my troubles,
Down on this killing floor.

Squeeze me baby,
Till the juice runs down my leg.
Squeeze me baby,
Till the juice runs down my leg.
The way you squeeze my lemon,
I'm gonna fall right out of bed.

I'm gonna leave my children down on this killing floor.

4. Thank You


If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
There will still be you and me.

Kind woman,
I give you my all.
Kind woman,
Nothing more.

Little drops of rain,
Whisper of the pain,
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong,
With you there is no wrong,
Together we shall go until we die.
Inspiration’s what you are to me,
Inspiration, look see.

And so today,
My world it smiles,
Your hand in mine we walk the miles.
Thanks to you it will be done,
For you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad,
Happiness, I'm glad.

If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
There will still be you and me.

 

6. Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman)


With a purple umbrella and a fifty cent hat,
Living, loving, she's just a woman.
She’s going aroung town in her aged Cadillac,
Living, loving, she's just a woman.

Come on babe on the round about,
Ride on the merry-go-round.
We all know what your name is,
So you better lay your money down.

Alimony alimony paying your bills,
Living, loving, she's just a woman.
When your conscience hits you knock it back with pills.
Living, loving, she's just a woman.

Come on babe on the round about,
Ride on the merry-go-round.
We all know what your name is,
So you better lay your money down.

Telling tall tales of how it used to be,
Living, loving, she's just a woman.
With the butler and the maid and the servants three,
Living, loving, she's just a woman.

Nobody hears a single word you say,
Living, loving, she's just a woman.
But you keep on talking till your dying day,
Living, loving, she's just a woman.

Come on babe on the round about,
Ride on the merry-go-round.
We all know what your name is,
So you better lay your money down.

Living, loving, she's just a woman.

 

4. Dazed and Confused


Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true,
Wanted a woman never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
Soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abused telling all of your lies,
Run arounds sweet baby lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby I don't know where you've been,
God I love you baby here I come again.

Every day I work so hard bringing home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby but you push me away.
Don't know where you're going only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true,
Wanted a woman never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby let them say what they will.
(Did your) tongue wag so much when I sent you the bill?
