[Intro]|Am   |Am   |Am/E |     |Am/D#|     |Am/D |     |Am/D#|    |
       |Am  G|Am  G|Am  G|Am  G| 

    Am            G Am           C    Am              G     Am   C
The Queen of Light  took her bow, and then she turned to go
    Am             G  Am               C    Am               G    Am   C
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom, and walked the night alone


[Chorus]

D                             
(Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light.)
    Am              G  Am           C    Am             G  Am   C
The Dark Lord rides in force tonight and time will tell us all. 


[Verse]

 D
(Oh, throw down your plow and hoe, rest not to lock your homes)
Am          G   Am            C       Am         G        Am    C   
Side by side we wait the might of the darkest of them all. 

|D   |    |    |    |Am   G|Am   C|Am   G|Am   C|

C          D               C                  D
I hear the horses thunder, down in the valley below
G7                   C                 G7                      C
 I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon, waiting for the eastern glow

    Am        G   Am         C    Am                G    Am    C
The apples of the valley hold the seeds of happiness,
    Am             G    Am         C   Am          G  Am    C 
The ground is rich from tender care, repay, do not forget
D
(Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light)

    Am         G   Am              C    Am           G   Am    C
The apples turn to brown and black, the tyrant's face is red. 
D
(Oh, war is common cry, pick up you swords and fly.)
    Am           G     Am          C     Am         G  Am    C
The sky is filled with good and bad that mortals never know. 

|D   |    |    |    |Am   G|Am   C|Am   G|Am   C|
(oh-oh-h)

C               D                 C                  D
  Oh, well, the night is long the beads of time pass slow,
G7                  C        G7                      C
  Tired eyes on the sunrise, waiting for the eastern glow. 

    Am         G   Am        C    Am       G  Am    C
The pain of war cannot exceed the woe of aftermath,
    Am              G    Am          C    Am               G  Am     C
The drums will shake the castle wall, the Ringwraiths ride in black,  Ride..
D
  ...On,  (Sing as you raise your bow, shoot straighter than before)

   Am         G    Am           C     Am              G  Am    C
No comfort has the fire at night that lights the face so cold. 


[Chorus]

D
(Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light.)
    Am         G    Am          C   Am           G    Am   C
The magic runes are writ in gold to bring the balance back,  bring it back 

|D   |    |    |    |Am   G|Am   C|Am   G|Am   C|

C           D                   C                   D
At last the sun is shining, the clouds of blue roll by,
G7                     C                      G7                  C
  With flames from the dragon of darkness the sunlight blinds his eyes.

|Am   |    |Am/E|    |Am/D#|    |Am/D|         |Am/D#|    |
|Em   |    |    |    |     |    |    |         |
                                       Bring it

Am    G        Am    C        Am    G        Am    C  
Back, bring it back, bring it back, bring it back, bring it 
Am    G        Am    C        Am    G        Am      C  
Back, bring it back, bring it back, bring it back,  
D
  Oh now, oh now, oh now oh, oh now, oh now, oh now oh, bring it 
Am    G        Am    C        Am    G        Am      C  
Back, bring it back, bring it back, bring it back,  
D
  Oh now, oh now, oh now oh, oh now, oh now, oh now oh, bring it 

Am              G         Am                  C
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it
Am              G         Am                  C
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it

About the artist behind The Battle Of Evermore:

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.
