Kashmir

Lyrics: Bonham, Plant, Page
Music: Bonham, Plant, Page

Played by Vince Elnick with Missing Man Formation and other post-Dead bands.

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
Stars fill my dream
I'm a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
Sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Talk in song in tongues of lilting grace
Sounds caress my ear
There are not a word I heard could I relate
Story was quite clear

Oh yeah I been flying
Love, yeah, ain't no denying, no
Oh, ooh yea, I been flying
Mama, mama, ain't no denying, no denying

All I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this wasted land
Try to find, try to find what I feel

The pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place
Yellow desert stream

My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon
I will return again
Sure as the dust that floats high in June
When moving through Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails
Across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face Along the straits of fear

When I'm on, when I'm on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way, you stay, yeah

Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I'm down
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, so down
Ooh, my baby, ooh, my baby, let me take you there

Let me take you there, let me take you there
