"Since I've Been Loving You" was one of the first songs prepared for the Led Zeppelin III album. The song was recorded live in the studio with very little overdubbing. It was reportedly the hardest to record.





Lyrics


Workin' from seven to eleven every night

It really makes life a drag

I don't think that's right

I've really been the best of fools

I did what I could, yeah

'Cause I love you, baby

How I love you, darling

How I love you, baby

My beloved little girl, little girl

But baby, since I've been loving you, yeah

I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh yeah


Everybody trying to tell me

That you didn't mean me no good

I've been trying, Lord, let me tell you

Let me tell you I really did the best I could

I've been working from seven to eleven every night

I said it kinda makes my life a drag

Lord, that ain't right, no no

Since I've been loving you

I'm about to lose my worried mind

Watch out


Said I've been crying, yeah

Oh, my tears they fell like rain

Don't you hear, don't you hear them falling

Don't you hear, don't you hear them falling


Do you remember, mama, when I knocked upon your door?

I said you had the nerve to tell me

You didn't want me no more, yeah

I open my front door, hear my back door slam

You know, you must have one of them new fangled

New fangled back door man


I've been working from seven, seven, seven to eleven every night

It kinda makes my life a drag, a drag, drag

Ah, yeah, it makes a drag

Baby, since I've been loving you

I'm about to lose

I'm about to lose, lose my worried mind

Just one more, just one more, oh yeah

Since I've been loving you, I'm about to lose my worried mind
