Led Zeppelin formed in 1968 and went on to become one of the most influential, innovative, and successful groups in modern music, having sold more than 300 million albums worldwide. The band rose from the ashes of The Yardbirds, when Jimmy Page brought in John Bonham, John Paul Jones, and Robert Plant to tour as The New Yardbirds.

In 1969, Led Zeppelin released its self-titled debut which was produced by Page, as were all the subsequent albums. It marked the beginning of a 12-year reign, during which the group was widely considered to be the biggest and most innovative rock band in the world.

"Over the Hills and Far Away" is the third track from English rock band Led Zeppelin's 1973 album Houses of the Holy. It was released as a single, with "Dancing Days" as the B-side, in the US.


Hey lady, you got the love I need Maybe more than enough Oh darling, darling, darling Walk a while with me Ohh, you've got so much, so much, so much

Many have I loved, and many times been bitten Many times I've gazed along the open road

Many times I've lied, and many times I've listened Many times I've wondered how much there is to know

Many dreams come true, and some have silver linings I live for my dream, and a pocket full of gold

Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing Many, many men can't see the open road

Many is a word that only leaves you guessing Guessing 'bout a thing you really ought to know, oh, oh, oh, oh Really ought to know I really ought to know Oh You know I should, you know I should, you know I should, you know I should
