per wikipedia: Houses of the Holy is the fifth studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin. It was released on 28 March 1973 … This was Led Zeppelin’s final studio release on Atlantic Records before forming their own label, Swan Song Records, in 1974, which would be distributed by Atlantic. It was also the only Led Zeppelin album that contained complete printed lyrics for each song.

“Over the Hills and Far Away” was written about the hippie lifestyle, including references to the “open road”. The song was developed in two halves, with a quiet acoustic section leading into a livelier electric one. The song was one of the first to be introduced into Led Zeppelin’s live set, being first played in mid-1972.

Ready for some rockin rock and roll? It doesn’t get any better than this. Jimmy Page, Guitar GOD.  No sh*t, nobody else plays like this, before, now, or ever.

Hey lady, you got the love I need
Maybe more than enough
Oh darling, darling, darling
Walk a while with me
Ohh, you’ve got so much, so much, so much

Many have I loved, and many times been bitten
Many times I’ve gazed along the open road

Many times I’ve lied, and many times I’ve listened
Many times I’ve wondered how much there is to know

Many dreams come true, and some have silver linings
I live for my dream, and a pocket full of gold

Mellow is the man who knows what he’s been missing
Many, many men can’t see the open road

Many is a word that only leaves you guessing
Guessing ’bout a thing you really ought to know, oh, oh, oh, oh
Really ought to know
I really ought to know
Oh
You know I should, you know I should, you know I should, you know I should

Songwriters: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

    1. I have the Phys Graf CD but rarely listen to it anymore. Glad you like that song. The Page-Plant combo was unbeatable. Not to say the other guys didn’t lend their stuff as well, but…

  1. I love water melon, but what can I say, Led Zeppelin – for me the quintessential rock and blues (and folk, and etc.) band with a fetish for Tolkien, ingrained and loved. With the exception of the first two bluesy albums the rest were all quite different, and Houses of the Holy has some haunting songs – read Lord of the Rings to it.

    1. It’s amazing the music they put out. I know they made some Tolkien references on that one and others. Immigrant Song talks about Nordic Gods also I think. I need to borrow the CDs I don’t have of theirs from the library.
