Led Zeppelin lyrics - Album: In Through The Out Door [1979]

n The Evening


In the evening, when the day is done

I'm looking for a woman, but the girl don't come

So don't let her, play you for a fool

She don't show no pity baby, she don't make no rules

*chorus: oh, oh, I need your love, I need your love

Oh, I need your love, I just got to have

So don't you let her, oh, get under your skin

It's only bad luck and trouble, from the day that you begin

I hear you crying in the darkness, don't ask nobody's help

Ain't no pockets full of mercy baby, cause you can only blame yourself


Oh it's simple, all the pain that you go through

You can turn away from fortune, fortune, cause that's all that's left to you

It's lonely at the bottom, man, it's dizzy at the top

But if you're standing in the middle, ain't no way you're gonna stop


Oh whatever that your days may bring

No use hiding in a corner, cause that won't change a thing

If you're dancing in the doldrums, one day soon, it's got to stop, it's got to stop

When you're the master of the off-chance, when you don't expect a lot


South Bound Saurez

Baby, when you walk that sweet walk

Oh, you walk it good, yes you walk it good

Baby, when you talk that sweet talk

Oh, it sounds so good, oh so good

With a little bit of concentration

And a little bit of helpin' hands, yeah

And a little bit of raving madness

You know it makes me feel, baby

Both my feet are back on the ground

And when the rhythm takes me

It feels so good, oh so good

Baby if it keeps a-shaking

It will do you good, oh so much good

With a little bit of stop-a-shakin' shakin'

And a little bit of ? fly right down?

And a little bit of sweet con carne

It makes me feel, makes me feel

I got my feet on the ground

Ooh now baby, when you move it makes me

Really feel so good, oh so good

And I'm so glad, so glad, so glad, so flad

And I'm good, oh, so good

With a little bit of concentration

And a little bit of helping hand

And a little bit of ? saving madness?

You know it makes me feel, baby

I'm back on the ground oh yes, sure does

It makes me feel back on the ground.

I'm feelin' good child!

Down on the ground.

Sha la la la...

Fool In The Rain


Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining

Like a star that can't wait for the night

I hate to think I've been blinded baby

Why can't I see you tonight?

And the warmth of your smile starts a-burnin'

And the thrill of your touch gives me fright

And I'm shaking so much, really yearning

Why don't you show up, make it all right?

Yeah, it's all right.

And if you promised you'd love so completely

And you said you would always be true

You swore that you would never leave me, baby:

What ever happened to you?

And you thought it was only in movies

As you wish all your dreams would come true

It ain't the first time believe me, baby

I'm standin here feeling blue

Yeah I'm blue

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner

I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown

Another ten minutes no longer

And then I'm turning around

The clock on the wall's moving slower

My heart it sinks to the ground

And the storm that I thought would blow over

Clouds the light of the love that I found

Now my body is starting to quiver

And the palms of my hands getting wet

I've got no reason to doubt you baby,

It's all a terrible mess

I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless

When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey

The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless

I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, oh yeah

Light of the love that I found...

Hot Dog


Well I just got into town today

To find my girl who's gone away

She took the greyhound at the general store

I searched myself I searched the town

When I finally did sit down

I find myself no wiser than before

She said we couldn't do no wrong

No other love could be so strong

She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer

Now she took my heart she took my keys

From in my old blue dungarees

And I'll never go to texas anymore

* chorus: now my baby's gone I don't know what to do

She took my love and walked right out the door

And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure

I'm gonna give her something like she never had before

I took her love at seventeen

A little late these days it seems

But they said heaven is well worth waiting for

I took her word I took it all

Beneath the sign that said u-haul

She left angels hangin round for more


I thought I had it all sewn up

Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck

But folks said she was after something more

I never did quite understand

All that talk about rockin' bands

But they just rolled my doll right out the door

Oh yeah, they just rolled my doll right out the door!



Sisters of the way-side bide their time in quiet peace,

Await their place within the ring of calm;

Still stand to turn in seconds of release,

Await the call they know may never come.

In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon

To jeopardize the course, upset the run;

And all was joy and hands were raised toward the sun

As love in the halls of plenty overrun.

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast,

Unending dances shadowed on the day.

Within their walls, their daunting formless keep,

Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay.

Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep,

Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray;

And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed,

But no one seemed to question in anyway.

How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land

To seek the unsuspecting and the weak;

And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand

Toward the foe that threatened from the deep.

Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand

Adrift upon a sea of futile speech?

And to fall to fate and make the 'status plan'

Where was your word, where did you go?

Where was your helping, where was your bow? bow.

Dull is the armour, cold is the day.

Hard was the journey, dark was the way. way.

I heard the word; I couldn't stay. oh.

I couldn't stand it another day, another day,

Another day, another day.

Touched by the timely coming,

Roused from the keeper's sleep,

Release the grip, throw down the key.

Held now within the knowing,

Rest now within the peace.

Take of the fruit, but guard the seed.

They had to stay!

Held now within the knowing,

Rest now within the beat.

Take of the fruit, but guard the seed...

All My Love


Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light

To chase a feather in the wind

Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight

There moves a thread that has no end.

For many hours and days that pass ever soon

The tides have caused the flame to dim

At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom

Is this to end or just begin?

* chorus: all of my love, all of my love, all of my love to you. (repeat)

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again

One voice is clear above the din

Proud aryan one word, my will to sustain

For me, the cloth once more to spin


Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time

His is the force that lies within

Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find

He is a feather in the wind


I'm Gonna Crawl


Oh she's my baby, let me tell you why

Hey, she drives me crazy, she's the apple of my eye

'cause she is my girl, and she can never do wrong

If I dream too much at night, somebody please bring me down

Hey, I love that little lady, I got to be her fool

Ain't no other like my baby, I can break the golden rule

'cause I get down on my knees, oh, I pray that love won't die

And if I always try to please, I don't know the reason why, yeah

If she would come back, only stay with me

Every little bit of my love, etc., I give to you girl

I don't have to go by plane

I ain't gotta go by car

I don't care just where my darling is

People I just don't care how far

I'm gonna crawl

I don't care if I got to go back home

I don't care what I got to stand to her back

I'm gonna crawl

I'm gonna move the car, baby

She give me good lovin

Yes I love her, I guess I love her

I'm gonna crawl.
