LYRICAL GEM NO.9 – “Ramble On”, Led Zeppelin

Not much to comment on for this one, except that it’s awesome, and a favorite from…ohh I don’t even know when.  From forever ago.  Kind of goes in hand with the fairytale/fantasy theme I seem slowly to be developing here.  And so, without further ado – Led Zeppelin, Ramble On…


Leaves are falling all around, It’s time I was on my way.

Thanks to you, I’m much obliged for such a pleasant stay.

But now it’s time for me to go.  The autumn moon lights my way.

For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it’s headed my way.

Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I’ve got one thing I got to do…


Ramble On, And now’s the time, the time is now, to sing my song.

I’m goin’ ’round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way.

I’ve been this way ten years to the day, Ramble On,

Gotta find the queen of all my dreams.


Got no time for spreadin’ roots, The time has come to be gone.

And to’ our health we drank a thousand times, it’s time to Ramble On.


Mine’s a tale that can’t be told, my freedom I hold dear.

How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.

T’was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.

But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her…yeah…


Gonna ramble on, sing my song.  Gotta keep-a-searchin’ for my baby…

Gonna work my way, round the world.  I can’t stop this feelin’ in my heart

Gotta keep searchin’ for my baby…
