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,
	   Am
When I look to the West.
	    C		G		Am
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
	    C			Am7
In my thoughts I have seen,
		Am
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,
	Am
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,
	Am
For those who stand long,
		C		G		Am
And the forests will echo with laughter.

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.

N.C.
And she's buying a Stairway to Heaven.

Little "finishing-touch" solo


	
NOTE: These are not the same chords a single guitarist will be playing.  This was
all done using the harmonics of each chord.  So if someone tells you, "You're
playing it wrong," tell them to play along and it will match.  I promise.
That should just about do it.  If you're a rhythm player and you don't wanna be
left out when the band starts playing this song, then this is for you.  I didn't
tab the solos because I play lead guitar and I wouldn't want anybody just copying
my solos.  It's not fair to take those from Jimmy Page.  They're a part of him
and he's a part of them.  So I'll leave that to the imagination (after all, it's
always improvised anyway).

About the artist behind Stairway To Heaven Chords:

Led Zeppelin were an English rock band that formed in August 1968. Led Zeppelin consisted of Jimmy Page (guitar), Robert Plant (vocals), John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards) and John Bonham (drums). With their heavy, guitar-driven sound, Led Zeppelin are regarded as one of the first heavy metal bands.[1][2] However, the band's individualistic style draws from many sources and transcends any one genre.[3] Their rock-infused interpretation of the blues and folk genres[4] also incorporated rockabilly,[5] reggae,[6] soul,[7] funk,[8] classical, Celtic, Indian, Arabic, pop, Latin and country. The band did not release the popular songs from their albums as singles in the UK, as they preferred to develop the concept of album-oriented rock.[9]

Close to 30 years after disbanding following Bonham's death in 1980, Led Zeppelin continue to be held in high regard for their artistic achievements, commercial success and broad influence. The band have sold more than 300 million albums worldwide,[10][11][12][13][14] including 111.5 million sales in the United States[15] and they have had all their non-compilation studio albums reach the U.S. Billboard Top 10.[16] Led Zeppelin are ranked No. 1 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.[17] Rolling Stone magazine has described Led Zeppelin as "the heaviest band of all time" and "the biggest band of the 70s".[18]

On 10 December 2007 the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reunited (along with deceased drummer John Bonham's son Jason) for the Ahmet Erteg√ľn Tribute Concert at The O2 in London.
