Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters are going to be at Kaaboo on Sunday! How many more times will we have a chance to see him play live in San Diego? Here is the band playing a Led Zeppelin classic that probably has something to do with so many of us choosing to live here:
Spent my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind to make a new start
Going To California with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me there’s a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane
Never let them tell you that they’re all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey
Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake.
Seems that the wrath of the Gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;
I think I might be sinking.
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
I’ll meet you up there where the path
Runs straight and high.
To find a queen without a king;
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings.
La la la la
Side a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin’ to find a woman who’s never, never, never been born.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it’s not as hard, hard, hard as it seems
Songwriters: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant
Expert voice control for a guy his age. Tenor level is really hard to hold onto as ya get older. You can tell he works hard at it. Btw, I never understood why any professional tenor smokes. It’s like “You have ONE job! Protect your money-maker!” If I were Robert Plant, or Paul McCartney, I’d only go outside wearing a gas mask. Private jets don’t pay for themselves!
Solid post Jim!
Check out Greta Van Fleet if you haven’t already, they sound like a young Zeppelin.
