Houses Of The Holy

Words and Music by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant

From the Recording Physical Graffitti

 

Transcribed by Ted DaCosta

 

First I'll tab the different guitar parts and then the words

 

notation h = hammer on

p = pull-off

b = bend

 

Intro

Repeat these first 2 bars twice

e---------------------------------------------------------------------------

e-----------------------|--------------2--2---------------------------------

B-----------------------|--------------2--2---------------------------------

G-------------2--2------|--------2--2--2--2---------------------------------

D----2--2-----2--2----2-|--2-----2--2--2--2---------------------------------

A----3--4--0--0--0----3-|--4--0--0--0---------------------------------------

E-----------------------|---------------------------------------------------

 

 

e-----------------------|--------------2--2-2-|-2---------------------------

B-----------------------|--------------2--2-2-|-2---------------------------

G-------------2--2------|--------2--2--2--2-2-|-2-------2-2-----------------

D----2--2-----2--2----2-|--2-----2--2--2--2-2-|-2-2-----2-2--2--------------

A----3--4--0--0--0----3-|--4--0--0--0---------|---3-4-0-0-0--3--------------

E-----------------------|---------------------|-----------------------------

 

This chord rings into the next bar for the start of the verse

e-------------2--2----------------------------------------------------------

B-------------2--0----------------------------------------------------------

G-------2-2---2--1----------------------------------------------------------

D--2----2-2---2--2----------------------------------------------------------

A--4--0-0-0-----------------------------------------------------------------

E---------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Note that the chords on the verses sustain a little, but notation wasn't easy

so listen to the record to get the timing and feel.

 

Verses D G D A E

 

e----------2--|--2--3--2--0-|-----------------------------------------------

B----------3--|--3--3--3--2-|-0-0-------------------------------------------

G----------2--|--2--4--2--2-|-1-1-------------------------------------------

D-------2--0--|--0--0--0--2-|-2-2-------------------------------------------

A---2h4-------|-------------|-----------------------------------------------

E-------------|-------------|-----------------------------------------------

 

The above is repeated for the verses 4 times. But the last time no E is

played, instead Jimmy goes back into the intro parts. Othertimes in the

song he plays the E four times before going back to the intro. Listen

to the recording to get these changes, it is quite clear.

 

Note during the song similar riffs to the intro. The little riff fill goes

something like this. Note that Jimmy plays variations on the fill.

 

bend from b to c# and then back to b

e---------------|------------------------------|----------------------------

B--------2-2----|-----2------------------------|----------------------------

Words :

 

Let me take you to the movies, can I take you to the show?

Let me be yours ever truly, can I make your garden grow?

 

>From the houses of the holy, we can watch the white doves go.

>From the door comes Satans daughter, and it only goes to show. and you know.

 

There's an angel on my shoulder, in my hand a sword of gold.

Let me wander in your garden, and the seeds of love I'll sow. You know.

 

So the world is spinning faster, are you dizzy when you stall

Let the music be your master will you heed the master's call Ohhh

 

Said there aint no use in crying, cause it will only, only drive you mad

Does it hurt to hear them lying? Was this the only world you had?

 

So let me take you take you to the movies, can I take you baby to the show

Why don't you let me be yours ever truly, Can I make your garden grow?

 

 

Thanks to the original poster.

 

Peace,

Paul Z
