"Misty Mountain Hop"


b = bend
^ = bend to fret in ( )
\ = slide up
h = hammer on
p = pull off


This is the complete tab for Misty Mountain Hop. It has all the right
parts, but they aren't in any order. If you listen to the record you
can put together the parts.
At the beginning of the song, some kind of instrument is playing the
main riff. Then comes in Page's distorted Les Paul playing this riff.

Main Riff
E--------------------------------
B--------------------------------
G--------------------------------
D---2--------2----2--------2-----
A---0-------------0--------------
E------3b--0---0-----3b--0---0---

This next part comes in after that.

E----------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------
A---4--5--3--4--5--3--4--5--3--4--5--3--4--5--3--4---
E----------------------------------------------------

This part comes in after they play those two riffs a couple times.

E---------2------------------
B-------3---3----------------
G-----2-------2---------0----
D---0-----------------0------
A-------------------2--------
E---------------0-3----------

Then he plays the main riff again. Later comes in this riff that sounds
just like the main riff

E----------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------
D----------------2-----------------2-----
A----------------------------------------
E---3^(5)--3b--0---0--3^(5)--3b--0---0---

The solo starts out going along with the main riff and then branching
off later.

Solo:

Lyrics

Walkin' in the park just the other day, Baby,
What do you, what do you think I saw?
Crowds of people sittin' on the grass with flowers in their her said,
"Hey, Boy, do you wanna score?"
And you know how it is;
I really don't know what time it was, woh, oh,
So I asked them to stay awhile.

I didn't notice but it got very dark and I was really,
Really out of my mind.
Just policeman stepped up to me and asked us said,
"Please, hey, would we care to all get in line,
Get in line."
Well you know,
They asked us to stay for tea and have some fun,
Oh, oh, he said that his friends would all drop by, ooh.

Why don't you take a good look at yourself and describe what you see,
And Baby, Baby, Baby, do you like it?
There you sit , sitting spare like a book on a shelf rustin'
Ah, not trying to fight it.
You really care if they're coming, oh, oh,
I know that it's all a state of mind, ooh.

If you go down in the streets today, Baby, you better,
You better open your eyes.
Folk down there really don't care, really don't care, don't care, really
don't
Which, which way the pressure lies,
So I've decided what I'm gonn do now.
So I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains
Where the spirits go now,
Over the hills where the spirits fly, ooh.
I really don't know.
