 Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh..... 
 Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh.....      Fade out...

        Spent my days with a woman unkind:
        Smoked my stuff and drank  all my wine.
        Made up my mind, make a new start,
        Goin' to California with an achin' 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 'em tell you that they're all the same.
        Ah, the Sea was red and the Sky was grey:
        I wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
        The mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake:
        Children of the Sun begin to wake....  [spoken:] watch out


        Seems like the wrath of the Gods: got a punch on the nose
        and it's startin' 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.


        Find a Queen without a King,
        They say she plays guitar and cries and sings: la-la-la-la.
        Ride a white mare on the footsteps of Dawn,
        Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born.
        Standing on a hill and a mountain of dreams,
        Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems....
        
        Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... 
        Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh.....      Fade out...

I saw a request for this, so I thought I'd post it.  This is my first
real tab, so it may not be perfect.

The song is not overly complex.  There are three main riffs
corresponding to the chords.  Just play the tab for the appropriate
chord.  The tabs may not be perfect, but I know the chords are
correct.

Rhythm:  all eighth notes, played in cut time.

Intro: second half of the "D" tab.

I hope this helps somewhat.  Also, the song is written in the key of D, if
anyone wants to know.

Hopefully, I'll try to post a few other Zeppelin tabs if I get the chance.
