Led Zeppelin - The Rover Lyrics




I've been to London
Seen seven wonders
I know to trip is just to fall
I used to rock it
Sometimes I'd roll it
I always knew what it was for

There can be no denyin'
That the wind'll shake 'em down
And the flat world's flying
And there's a new plague on the land

Just join hands
We could just join hands
If we could just join hands

Traversed the planet
When heaven sent me
I saw the kings who rule them all
Still by the firelight
And purple moonlight
I hear the rested rivers call

And the wind is crying
From a love that won't grow cold
My lover she is lying
On the dark side of the globe

Just join hands
We could just join hands
If we could just join hands

You got me rockin' when I ought to be a-rollin' darlin'
Tell me, darlin', which way to go
You keep me rockin' baby, then you keep me stolen
Won't you tell me darlin', which way to go
That's right

Oh how I wonder
Oh how I worry
And I would dearly like to know
I've all this wonder
Of earthly plunder
Will it leave us anything to show

And our time is flyin'
See the candle burning low
Is the new world rising
From the shambles of the old?

If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just, if we could just, if we could just
If we could just, if we could just join hands
That's all it takes, that's all it takes
That's all it takes, that's all it takes

Led Zeppelin The Rover Comments
  1. DODO

    My first LZ vinyl was Presence ... and a flop. Years after I came across this one ... nothing felt right. Sabbath were heavier and more to my personal taste, AC and Priest more dynamic and sinister ... LZ passed by me unnoticed and now .... pfffff ... the hype !!!

  2. BigFishGuy 704

    This is any other bands best song, with a few exceptions

  3. Canal Oval

    This riff is amazing!

  4. Adrian Prophett

    I. I l. Always knew what it was Perce

  5. Eddie Smith

    The commercial at the beginning of some liar proclaiming his distrust in the establishment was disgusting.

  6. Christopher Vojt

    Had this Led I,II,III this Led Zeppelin 5The album with No Title -Black.Dog,Rock+Roll physical Graffiti ,Dyer Maker love All💚💛🧡💗💙💓☝️🕊️

  7. Perry Comeau

    Speaking of g-d; a double bubble bath is up ally. Kids love LZ.

  8. RICHARD BURGER

    On July 24, 1977, Oakland Stadium. I saw Led Zeppelin. It was bigger than life. I will never forget it. I still have my tickets, and tee shirt. Rock n Roll!

  9. Lori Moore

    These guys were my first rock concert in Chicago in 1977' they were listed as a favorite in my senior year yearbook in 1980 and that still has not changed!

  10. Vinny Angell

    In the 70s, I knew a dude who had this album and Deep Purple's "Stormbringer" and he didn't like them!!! so, I stole them both, I have absolutely NO regrets...

  11. Vergón 666

  45. blz1td4u

    Always loved hearing that harmonic at :41...

  46. mitch davis

    The title "Physical Graffiti" was coined by Page to illustrate the whole physical and written energy that had gone into producing the set.

  47. mitch davis

    Physical Graffitti the first release on Zep's Swan Song Records.. a double dose of ass kicking rock

  48. Jon Valm

    Greatest album ever created! My older brother (R.I.P.) and uncle were LED HEADS that blessed me with Zeppelin since birth. You have to have the vinyl album to appreciate the whole experience

  53. John Gustafson

    I've been to London, seen seven wonders I know to trip is just to fall
    I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it
    I always knew what it was for
    There can be no denying, that the wind'll shake 'em down
    And the flat world's flying, and there's a new plague on the land

    And the wind is crying, from a love that won't grow cold
    My lover, she is lying, on the dark side of the globe
    You got me rocking when I ought to be a-rolling
    Darling, tell me, darling, which way to go
    You keep me rocking, baby, then you keep me stolen
    Won't you tell me, darling, which way to go, that's right
    Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry, and I would dearly like to know
    I've all this wonder, of earthly plunder, will it leave us anything to show
    And our time is flying, see the candle burning low
    Is the new world rising, from the shambles of the old
    If we could just, if we could just, if we could just
    If we could just, if we could just join hands
    That's all it takes, that's all it takes
    That's all it takes, that's all it takes

  54. Ashtin Doner

    Definitely in my top 3 most favorite Led Zeppelin songs!

  55. Michael Reynolds

    What's with all the dislikes? Can't hope to play like Led Zeppelin? Then go do something else.

  56. tmc515

    Best guitar riff ever created!!!

  57. Lemmy Bon

    Got this second hand album when I was 13 (1982). Still play it with all the crackles and love it. My fave Zep song.

  58. ckelley63

    The Mighty Zep none better!!

  60. TheFanboyHater

    So this is where Greta van Fleet got both Highway Tune and Talk on the street parts

  61. 777the neighborofthebeast

    This album doesn't get enough love.

  63. Moffett Coates

  70. Ca Grammer

    Led Zeppelin could be dropped on a distant star millions of miles from Earth...and the alien life would be jamming out..Try saying that about ANY 2019 artist

    Thomas Shankey

    Billy Strings..

  71. Big AL

    If I could only have two albums on a deserted island, they would be: Physical Graffiti and Quadrophenia!

    Montgomery Denzer

    Dark Side and Brian Eno Apollo

    Big AL

    @Montgomery Denzer ok, three albums, add Dark Side.

  72. - XxJimmyPagexX -

    Why so many dislikes smh

  73. mark hernandez

    Page is from another realm, that guitar Solo is so smooth, firing on all pistons they are, Jones you Devil you,

    jp jonesh

    True jpj sold iz soul for himself at the expense of the other 3. A.C. secret

  74. monty derhak

    classic album....always felt JPage was overlooked as one of the great rock guitar players.....

    Big AL

    He was amazing. Most great guitarists still play the same rifts over and over, it's their 'style', But if you really listen to Page, EVERY solo he very played was original, no two sounded the same, he was, and is, amazing.

  75. Taxi Talk NYC

    I can play this one. ;)

  76. Samurq

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  77. georgeharatzoglou

    Led Zeppelin was a great band with a lousy singer, exactly like the Rolling Stones.Sorry, but that's my opinion.

    Lyrics:

    The Rover
    ---------
    I've been to London, seen seven wonders
    I know to trip is just to fall
    I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it
    I always knew what it was for

    There can be no denyin' that the wind'll shake 'em down
    And the flag we're flyin' is the new flag of the land
    Just join hands
    If we could just join hands
    If we could just join

    The fields were plenty when Heaven sent me
    I saw the kings who ruled them all
    Still by the firelight and purple moonlight
    I hear the rusted river's call

    And the wind is cryin' from a love that won't grow cold
    My lover, she is lyin' on the dark side of the globe

    Could just join hands
    If we could just join hands
    If we could just join hands, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
    Do it, ow

    You got me rockin' when I oughta be rollin'
    Darlin', tell me, darlin', which way to go
    Keep me rockin' baby, can you keep this rollin'
    Won'tcha tell me, darlin', which way to go, that's right

    Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry
    and I would dearly like to know
    How all this squander of earthly plunder
    will leave us anything to show

    And our time is flyin'
    See the candle burnin' low
    Is the new world risin'
    from the shambles of the old

    Could just join hands
    If we could just join hands
    If we could just, if we could just
    If we could just, if we could just
    If we could just join hands, hey

    That's all it takes, that's all it takes
    That's all it takes, that's all it takes
    Hey-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
    Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
    Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, ooh yeah, ah, ah, yeah
    That's right, that's right, that's right, that's right
