Babe I'm Gonna Leave You
Traditional; arranged by Jimmy Page

Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin I
1969

I heard this on the radio the other day, and realized what a challenging
song it was.  So I went to figure it out, and played with it for a while
and came up with this.  Hope you like it!  Have fun with it...
