Stairway to Heaven

These stairs hold some unforgetable memories for me.
They were almost brand new back in the summer of 74, and they led to a quaint little pier.
Sadly the pier was washed away by one of the major hurricanes we've had in the last decade.

I'll never forget that intoxicating night in the summer of 74.

It was a full moon.
We had drank until we were giggly. She straddled me as I lay on my back gazing up at her long blonde hair silhouetted by the moonlight behind her.
Wow! this is what all my friends were talking about? This is truly heaven! I'm a virgin no more!

Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven Lyrics!

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are closed
With a word she can get what she came for


Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
And you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking

Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forest will echo with laughter

And it makes me wonder

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May Queen

Yes there are two paths you can go by
but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on

Your head is humming and it won't go in case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can't you hear the wind blow and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are closed
With a word she can get what she came for


And she's buying a stairway to heaven, uh uh uh

Hi Chrissy

Wow!.....I would have never took you for a Led Zeppelin fan?
That was way before your time wasn't it?
I guess they are a timeless band!

HAHA! When I was 10, I had a huge crush on my friend's older brother, who was in high school. He and his friends listened to Led Zep and a whole bunch of really cool bands. You're right...it was a bit before my time, but I appreciate lots of types of music. I actually find that a lot of great music came from that time. I'm kind of bothered by the mass produced crap that people keep coming up with nowadays. LOL! There was a certain quality of music back in then. Anyway, I like all kinds of music.

Stairway to Heaven was such a long song! I remember the poor guy who danced with me had neck cramps because I was so short! LOL! I'm 5'1" and he was close to 6 ft tall!

"32"....(12/18/75)I'm old enough to be your Dad!LOL I graduated highschool the year you were born!

Today's music has gotten so bad, that I finally turned to country music in 04. I can't stand Gangsta Rap!

Ohhhhhhhh...Happy Belated Birthday!
Your b-day was April 18th?!

LOL! You are too funny! My husband is actually a little older than me. Most days, I don't even notice that there's a little age difference. It's only when he says things like "When I was in high school, you were still in kindergarten!" that I remember that he's a bit older than me! LOL! Oh, or when I mention Glam Rock bands that I was in love with when I was a teenager and he says, "Huh? Who are they??" LOL! You know, Warrant, Skid Row, Mr. Big...
