    LED ZEPPELIN - BLACK DOG (Page/Plant/Jones) From LED ZEPPELIN
                   IV. Released on November 8th 1971. 
   
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





    This song has one of the best riffs in the Zeps catalog and they
    did a great job with all those deceptive time signature changes,
    but I'd have cut the number to less than four minutes long and 
    would also have cut most of the final solo because I think it's 
    too long and Page wasn't very sound there. 




    Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move,
    Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.

    Ah, ah, child, way you shake that thing,
    Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting.

    Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way,
    Watch your heartache drip, can't keep away.

    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, oh 
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, oh

    I gotta roll, can't stand still,
    Got a flamin' heart, can't get my fill,
    Eyes that shine burning red,
    Dreams of you all through my head.
    Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah...

    Hey baby, oh baby, pretty baby,
    Tell me what you do me now.
    Hey baby, oh baby, pretty baby,
    Tell me what you do me now

    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' goin' be a star.
 
    I don't know, but I've been told
    A Big legged woman ain't got no soul


    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, ah 
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, ah

    All I ask for, when I pray,
    Steady rollin' of woman gonna come my way.

    Need a woman gonna hold my hand
    Tell me no lies, makes me a happy man.

    Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah...

    Ahhhhhh!

    Ooooh-ahhhh
