[Intro]  Riff 1  2x


  Riff 1
     I don't know how I'm going to tell you
  Riff 1
     I can't play with you no more  
  Riff 1
     I don't know how I'm going to do what mama told me
  Riff 1
     My friend the boy next door

  Riff 1  3x

  Riff 1
     I can't believe what people saying
  Riff 1
     You only let your hair down
  Riff 1
     I'm satisfied to sit here working all day long
  Riff 1
     You're in the darkest side of town
 
  Riff 1  4x

  Riff 1
     And when I'm out I see you walking
  Riff 1
     Why don't your eyes see me
  Riff 1
     Could it be you've found another game to play
  Riff 1
     What did mama say to me

  Riff 2                             Riff 1 
     That's the way   Oh  that's the way it ought to be
  Riff 2                  Riff 3A 2x 
     Mama said that's the way it ought to stay

  Riff 4

  Riff 1 1x

  Riff 1
     And yesterday I saw you standing by the river
  Riff 1
     And weren't those tears that filled your eyes
  Riff 1
     And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying
  Riff 1
     Had they got you hypnotized

  Riff 1  4x

  Riff 1
     And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
  Riff 1
     But all that lives is born to die
  Riff 1
     And so I say to you that nothing really matters
  Riff 1
     And all you do is stand and cry

  Riff 1  4x

  Riff 1
     I don't know what to say about it
  Riff 1
     When all your ears are turned away
  Riff 1
     But now's the time to look and look again at what you see
  Riff 1
     Is that the way it ought to stay

  Riff 2                        Riff 1   
     That's the way  That's the way it ought to be    Whoa don't you know now
  Riff 2                             Riff B  3x    
     Mama said  mama said that's the way it's going to stay   Ahh Ahh
  
  Riff 4
     Aaaaaaaaaah  Ahhh   Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

  Riff 5 until end

On the Led Zeppelin III record, this song definitely does not use these chords.

The chords used are F# B C#.

For example, here's the first line.
F# B F# C# B F#
I don't know how I'm gonna tell you.

Spacing freaked out...let's try again.

F#----------B------------F#------------C#-B-F#
