dolly parton – stairway to heaven lyrics


there’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
and she’s buying a stairway to heaven
when she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed,
with a word she can get what she came for
ooh, a stairway to heaven
there’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
’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
oh-oh, makes me wonder. i wonder; i really, really wonder
there’s a feelin’ i get when i look to the west
and my spirit is crying for leavin’
in my thoughts i have seen rings of smoke through the trees
and the voices of those who stand lookin’
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
oh-oh-oh-oh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
if there’s a bustle in your hedgerow 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 some time to change the road you’re on
oh, it makes me wonder
your head is hummin’ and it won’t go in case you don’t know,
the piper’s callin’ you to join him
oh, can you hear the wind blow
and did you know your stairway lies upon the whisperin’ wind
stairway to heaven, stairway to heaven
you can’t buy it, you can’t borrow
you’ve got to walk it straight and narrow
stairway to heaven, stairway to heaven, stairway to heaven
and as we walk on down the road
our shadows longer than our souls,
all that glitters is not gold
wanna be a rock and not a roll
oh, the great almighty dollar leaves you lonely, lost and hollow
you can’t fool yourself forever
you gotta work to get to heaven
stairway to heaven.
if we listen and hold fast
to every question that we asked
the truth will come to us at last
and she’s buying a stairway to heaven
