Ramble On

Leaves are falling all around, It’s time I was on my way.
Thanks to you, I’m much obliged for such a pleasant stay.
But now it’s time for me to go. The autumn moon lights my way.
For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it’s headed my way.
Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I’ve got one thing I got to do…

[Chorus]
Ramble On, And now’s the time, the time is now, to sing my song.
I’m goin’ ‘round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way.
I’ve been this way ten years to the day, Ramble On,
Gotta find the queen of all my dreams.

Got no time to for spreadin’ roots, The time has come to be gone.
And to’ our health we drank a thousand times, it’s time to Ramble On.

[Chorus]

Mine’s a tale that can’t be told, my freedom I hold dear.
How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.
T’was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her….yeah.

[Chorus]

Gonna ramble on, sing my song. Gotta keep-a-searchin’ for my baby…
Gonna work my way, round the world. I can’t stop this feelin’ in my heart
Gotta keep searchin’ for my baby. I can’t find my bluebird!

Il brano è uno dei più intensi composti dai Led Zeppelin, di notevole influenza in quanto riproponente lo schema della power ballad, alternante parti morbide e soffuse a esplosioni di vero e proprio hard-rock, introdotto dal gruppo e avente il suo primo episodio nella celebre Baby I’m Gonna Leave You, presente nel disco d’esordio della band. Attualmente figura alla posizione 433 nella lista delle 500 migliori canzoni secondo Rolling Stone. La canzone contiene numerosi rimandi alle opere di Tolkien, famoso scrittore inglese, autore del Signore degli Anelli. (it-wikipedia, en-wikipedia)
