This was one of Plant's first songs recorded by the band, and also marks the first appearance of drummer John Bonham's Chinese gong, which he set up as part of his drum kit in concerts. The gong appears in the middle part among Jimmy Page's guitar riffs. According to the book Hammer of the Gods: The Led Zeppelin Saga, Plant wrote this song reflecting on his affair with his wife's younger sister. In Billy Joel's 1997 appearance in VH1's Storytellers, Joel plunks this out as part of his medley-intro to "We Didn't Start The Fire." Source: Song Facts
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band originally formed in 1968 by guitarist Jimmy Page under the name "The New Yardbirds", based on Page's previous band, The Yardbirds. The band formed when Jimmy Page (guitar) recruited Robert Plant (vocals, harmonica), John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards, mandolin), and John Bonham (drums). With their heavy, guitar-driven blues-rock sound, Led Zeppelin are regularly cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock music. Show more ...
And if I say to you tomorrow. Take my hand, child, come with me.
It s to a castle I will take you, where what s to be, they say will be.
*Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky.
But the wind won t blow, you really shouldn t go, it only goes to show
That you will be mine, by takin our time.
And if you say to me tomorrow, oh what fun it all would be.
Then what s to stop us, pretty baby. But What Is And What Should Never Be.
So if you wake up with the sunrise, and all your dreams are still as new,
And happiness is what you need so bad, girl, the answer lies with you.
Oh the wind wont blow and we really shouldn t go and it only goes to show.
Catch the wind, we re gonna see it spin, we re gonna...sail, little girl
do do do, bop bop a do-oh, my my my my my my yeah.
Everybody I know seems to know me well
but they re never gonna know that I move like hell.
