A frequent topic of discussion in the tab groups is 'what are the lyrics to
'Stairway To Heaven' about, anyway?'.  Well, the narrator obviously isn't
going to build a *physical* stairway to heaven - for one thing, how could
he move it around without bumping it into everything?  Instead, 'build a
stairway to heaven' is a *metaphor* - like, you know, sometimes words have
two meanings.


                          "Stairway To Heaven"
                   (Neil Sedaka - Howard Greenfield)

	 F         Dm
	Climb up   way up high
	Bb       C [N.C. (tympani)]
	/ / / /  /

Verse 1:

	 F
	Well-A well-A well-A heavenly angel
	Dm
	I want you for my girl
	 Bb

	   C [N.C.]                        B

Chorus:

	Bb            G7

	      C7/G        /C        F   [1-3: N.C. (tympani); 4: to coda]
	'Cause heaven is where you are

Verse 2:

	Well-A well-A well-A over the rainbow
	That's where I'm gonna climb
	Way up high where the bluebirds fly
	I'm gonna love you all the time

[sax solo over verse chords]

[repeat chorus]

	Well-a well-a well I gotta be going
	Gonna leave the world behind
	Every day in a heavenly way
	You're gonna drive me outta my mind

[repeat chorus]
