          Am         Amadd9/G#      C/G        D/F#
There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold 
          Fmaj7                  G/B Am
and she's buying the stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
C D Fmaj7 Am        C          G           D
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying the stairway to heaven
          C           D             Fmaj7       Am
There's a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure
          C              D              Fmaj7
cause 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

Am7 Am Dsus4 D             Am7 Am Em/D D C/D D
              It makes me wonder
It makes me wonder

          C         G          Am
There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
       C         G          F  Am
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

It makes me wonder
It really makes me wonder
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 forests will echo with laughter

If there's a bustle in your hedge row
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

And it makes me wonder
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 you hear the wind blow, and did you know
your stairway lies on the whispering wind

Am        G                F    G
And as we wind on down the road
our shadows taller than our souls
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 is one and one is all
to be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying the stairway to heaven
