I remember that there was a pretty good tab of this song on here, but It must have been taken down
or something... all the other ones are incomplete. This is how I learned to play it. Here we go!

Tuning: standard!
Bonham: We've done four already but now we're steady and then they went, one, two, three, four!

Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar!
Play for free, I play for me and play a whole lot more, more!
Sing about the good things and the sun that lights the day,
I used to sing to the mountains cuz the ocean lost it's way.

na na, nana na, na, nanana nana na....

sitting round, singing songs till the night turns into day,
Used to sing to the mountains but the mountains washed away,
Now Im singing all my songs to the girl who won my heart,
Now, she's only three years old but its a real fine way to start!

did you mean 5h7 5h7 instead of 7h5 7h5? other than that, it sounds good.
