Am E+ C D F G Am

[Verse 1]
There's a [Am]lady who's [E+]sure
all that [C]glitters is [D]gold
And she's [F]buying a stairway to [G]Hea[Am]ven
When she [Am]gets there she [E+]knows,
if the [C]stores are all [D]closed
With a [F]word, she can get what she [G]came [Am]for
[C]Ooh, [D]ooh, [F]ooh, [Am]ooh, and she's [C]buying a [G]stairway to [D]Heaven

There's a [Am]sign on the [E+]wall,
but she [C]wants to be [D]sure
Cause you [F]know sometimes words have two [G]mea[Am]nings
In a [Am]tree by the [E+]brook,
there's a [C]songbird who [D]sings
Sometimes [F]all of our thoughts are [G]mis[Am]given

Am E+ C D F G Am

[D]Ooh, makes me [Am]wonder [Em D C D]
[D]Ooh[Dsus4] [D], makes me [Am]wonder [Em D C D]

[Verse 2]
There's a [C]feeling I [G]get
when I [Am]look to the west
And my [C]spirit is [G]crying for [F]lea[Am]ving
In my [C]thoughts I have [G]seen
rings of [Am]smoke through the trees
And the [C]voices of [G]those who stand [F]loo[Am]king

[C G Am]

[D]Ooh, makes me [Am]wonder [Em D C D]
[D]Ooh[Dsus4] [D], makes me [Am]wonder [Em D C D]

[Verse 3]
And it's [C]whispered that [G]soon
if we [Am]all call the tune
Then the [C]piper will [G]lead us to [F]rea[Am]son
And a [C]new day will [G]dawn
for [Am]those who stand long
And the [C]forests will [G]echo with [F]laugh[Am]ter

[C G Am]

[Am D Am Em D C D]

[Am]Oooh-[D]Oooooooh [Am Em D C D]

[Verse 4]
[C]If there's a [G]bustle in your [Am]hedgerow,
don't be [G]alarmed now
[C]It's just a [G]spring clean for the [Am]May queen
[C]Yes, there are [G]two paths you can [Am]go by,
but in the [G]long run
[C]There's still [G]time to change the [Am]road you're on

[D]Ooh, makes me [Am]wonder [Em D C D]

[Verse 5]
[C]Your head is [G]humming and it [Am]won't go,
in case [G]you don't know
[C]The piper's [G]calling you to [Am]join him
[C]Dear lady, [G]can you hear the [Am]wind blow?
And did [G]you know
[C]Your stairway [G]lies on the [Am]whispering wind? [C G Am]

[Guitar Solo]

Am - G - F 10x

[Am]And as we [G]wind on down the [F]road[G] / [Am]
Our shadows [G]taller than our [F]soul[G] / [Am]
There walks a [G]lady we all [F]know[G] / [Am]
Who shines [G]white light and wants to [F]show[G] / [Am]
How every[G]thing still turns to [F]gold[G] / [Am]
And if you [G]listen very [F]hard [G] / [Am]
The tune will [G]come to you at [F]last [G] / [Am]
When all are [G]one and one is [F]all [G] / [Am]
To be a [G]rock and not to [F]roll

And she's [F]buying a [G]stairway to [Am]Heaven
