Down by the Seaside, by Led Zeppelin from Physical Graffiti
Transcribed by Ryan Bailey, baileyb@uwstout.edu

This is my best shot to nail this song down.  It's pretty tough to sound

but this is the main part.

  at end, just a simple jam in A)

  Do you [A]still do the twist, do you find you remember things that 
  [D]well?  I wanna tell you some go [A]twistin' everyday,
  though sometimes it's awful hard to tell.  (Repeat Rhyth Fig 1)

  [C]Out in the [F]country, [C]hear the people [F]singing,
  [C]singing 'bout the [F]growing, [C]knowing where' they're 
  [F]going.  (Repeat Rhythm Fig 2)

  [C]Sing loud for the [F]sunshine, [C]pray hard for the [F]rain,
  [C]and show your love [F]for lady nature, [C]and she will come
  back again. (Repeat Rhythm Fig 2)
