Stairway To Heaven

	  Intro: Guitar and/or keyboard/flute  

C	D	F	Am  
C	G	Am  

Verse 1:                     
C		D  
There’s a lady who’s sure,  
		F		Am  
All that glitters is gold.  
C		G		Am  
And she’s buying a Stairway to Heaven.  
C		  D  
When she gets there she knows,  
F	        Am  
If the stores are all closed,  
C	      G  	           Am  
With a word she can get what she came for.  
C	       G	           Am  
And she’s buying a Stairway to Heaven.  

Little part between verses:  
C	D	F	Am  
C	G	Am  

Verse 2:  

C		D  
There’s a sign on the wall,  
F	    Am  
But she wants to be sure.  
C			G		Am  
‘Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.  
C		D  
In a tree by the brook,  
F		Am  
There’s a songbird who sings,  
C		G		Am  
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.  

Bridge 1:  

Am7/G  Am7  D/E  D  
And it makes me wonder...  
Am7/G  Am7  Em-D-C-D  
And it makes me wonder...  

Verse 3:  

C	   Am7  
There’s a feeling I get,  
When I look to the West.  
C		G		Am  
And my spirit is crying for leaving.  
C			Am7  
In my thoughts I have seen,  
Rings of smoke through the trees,  
C	  G			Am  
And the voices of those who stand looking.  

Bridge 1  

Verse 4:  

C		Am7	  
And it’s whispered that soon,  
If we all call the tune,  
C	    G		   Am  
Then the piper will lead us to reason.  
C		   Am7  
And a new day will dawn,  
For those who stand long,  
C		G		Am  
And the forests will echo with laughter.  

Bridge 2:  

D/G		D  
D/G		D	  


Over chords: Am  G  F  G  
Ad lib  

Verse 5:  

Am	G		F	G  
And as we wind on down the road,  
Am	G		F	G  
Our shadows taller than our souls,  
Am	G	    	F	G  
There walks a lady we all know,  
Am	G		F	G  
Who shines white light and wants to show,  
Am	G		F	G  
How everything still turns to gold.  
Am	G		F	G  
And if you listen very hard,  
Am	G		F	G  
The tune will come to you at last.  
Am	    G			F  
To be a rock and not a roll.  

And she’s buying a Stairway to Heaven.
