Led Zeppelin - Carouselambra

 

From the CD 'In Through the Out Door'

Written by Jones/Page/Plant

Swan Song 16002 and/or Atlantic 92443-2

 

This file is mostly chords. The song is in C, the part I tabbed

out is in D, and the end is in G. Most of it is synth and/or keyboard, so

I have that here too. You can figure out which is keys and which is

guitar. Enjoy.

Progression:

 

G A A G A A G A A G A A B C#

 

Repeat this 8 times:

 

[x00231] [x02220]

Dm/A A

 

With verse: [x33211] [x30210]

 

F/C C

Sisters by the wayside bide their time in quiet peace,

await their place within the ring of calm.

 

Dm/A A

Still stand to turn in seconds of release,

await the call they know may never come.

 

F/C C

In times of lightness no intruder dared upon

to jeopardize the course, upset the run.

 

Dm/A A

All was joy and hands were raised towards the sun,

as love in halls of plenty overrun.

 

[xx0233] [xx0232]

Dsus4 D

Ah, ah, ah, ah.

 

Then 4 times in the same pattern:

 

[113331] [133211]

Bb/F F

 

4 times:

Dm/A A

 

 

F/C C

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast,

unending dances shadowed on the day.

 

Dm/A A

Within the wall their dauting formless keep,

preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay.

 

F/C C

Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep,

just turn a coin, bring order to the fray.

 

Dm/A A

And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed,

but no-one seemed to question anyway.

 

Dsus4 D

Ah, ah, ah, ah.

 

4 times:

 

Bb/F F

 

Then the keyboard does a little roll which kinda goes like this:

 

|: A~ F G :| [Play it four times]

 

F/C C

How keen the soaring hunter's eye prevails upon the land,

to seek the unsuspecting and the weak.

 

Dm/A A

And powerless the fabled sat, too slow to lift a hand,

toward the foe that threatened them from the deep.

 

F/C C

Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand,

adrift upon the sea of futile speech?

 

Dm/A A

Wha??

 

 

Dsus4 D

Ah, ah, ah, ah.

 

4 times:

 

Bb/F F

 

 

Then the keyboard does that little roll again:

 

|: A~ F G :| [Play it four times]

 

 

The keyboard does another thing but I'll list the chords here:

 

|: F G Em :| [Play it three times]

 

|: A~ F G :| [two times]

 

|: F G Em :| [Play it three times]

 

|: A~ F G :| [two times]

 

|: F G Em :| [Play it three times]

 

 

[This is in D]:

[Riff 2] x2

 

[Riff 2] with lyrics:

 

Where was your word, where did you go?

Where was your helping, where was your bow? Bow.

 

[Riff 1] x1

 

[Riff 2] w/ lyrics:

 

Dull is the armour, cold is the day.

Hard was your journey, dark was the way. Way.

 

[Riff 1] x1

 

[Riff 2] w/ lyrics:

 

I heard the word, I couldn't stay, oh.

I couldn't stand it another day. Another day, ay, another day,

Another day.

 

Keyboard bangs out an A chord, then it plays a G for four measures [final

key switch to G], then A again for four measures.

 

Play G:

Touched by the timely coming, roused from the keeper's sleep,

Play A:

release the grip, throw down the key.

Play D:

Held now within the knowing, rest now within the peace,

Play A:

Take of the fruit, but guard the seed.

 

Play D for four measures, then:

 

[x04442]

|: A A B/A~ :| [Play this four times]

 

Play G for four measures, then A for four measures.

 

Play G:

Held now within the knowing, rest now within the beat,

take of the fruit but guard the seed.

 

Play D for four measures, then:

 

Play A:

Take of the fruit but guard the seed.

 

Play D for four measures, then:

 

|: A A B/A~ :| [Play this three times]

 

Repeat until fadeout:

[x05553]

|: A A B/A~ C/A B/A :|
