Lyrics

Walkin' in the park just the other day, Baby,
What do you, what do you think I saw?
Crowds of people sittin' on the grass with flowers in their her said,
"Hey, Boy, do you wanna score?"
And you know how it is;
I really don't know what time it was, woh, oh,
So I asked them to stay awhile.

I didn't notice but it got very dark and I was really,
Really out of my mind.
Just policeman stepped up to me and asked us said,
"Please, hey, would we care to all get in line,
Get in line."
Well you know,
They asked us to stay for tea and have some fun,
Oh, oh, he said that his friends would all drop by, ooh.

Why don't you take a good look at yourself and describe what you see,
And Baby, Baby, Baby, do you like it?
There you sit , sitting spare like a book on a shelf rustin'
Ah, not trying to fight it.
You really care if they're coming, oh, oh,
I know that it's all a state of mind, ooh.

If you go down in the streets today, Baby, you better,
You better open your eyes.
Folk down there really don't care, really don't care, don't care, really  
    don't
Which, which way the pressure lies,
So I've decided what I'm gonn do now.
So I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains
Where the spirits go now,
Over the hills where the spirits fly, ooh.
I really don't know.

The Insturment that
plays the beginning
of Misty Mountain Hop
is a synthisiser.
I think.

The verse tab is incorrect. Here is the correction.

Led Zeppelin - Misty Mountain Hop

VERSE PART:

I have never seen this part tabbed correctly on any site.
Most tabs have used single notes for the verse - but if you
listen to a live version, you can really hear the dissonant
chords that Jimmy is playing. They are a bit hidden under
the rhodes keyboard on the studio version. The 3 notes of
a 7th chord really sound interesting used this way.
Note: The chords and lyrics shown are staggared so they would fit
