Black Dog – Led Zeppelin

Black Dog is arguably one of the greatest songs ever written by the mega band, Led Zeppelin. The following is the song lyrics along with some interesting facts about Black Dog, Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin released Black Dog in 1971 as part of their fourth album, appropriately title Led Zeppelin IV. This song was on Rolling Stones 2004 list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time along with other Zep tunes.

Keyboardist and bassist John Paul Jones came up with the catchy main riff which dominates the song. The tune was arranged, written and recorded on the spot. Robert Plant took only two takes to lay out the vocals.

The most interesting part is that Black Dog has nothing to do with a black dog, black or dogs. The members of Led Zeppelin could not come up with a good title on the spot so they named it after a black Labrador that was touring the Headley Grange Studios parking lot during the recording session.

Black Dog – Led Zeppelin Lyrics

Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move,
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.
Ah, ah, child, way you shake that thing,
Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting.
Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way,
Watch your heartache drip, can’t keep away.

I gotta roll, can’t stand still,
Got a flamin’ heart, can’t get my fill,
Eyes that shine burning red,
Dreams of you all through my head.

Hey baby, oh baby, pretty baby,
Tell me what you do me now.
Hey baby, oh baby, pretty baby,
Tell me what u do me now

Didn’t take too long b’fore I found out
What people mean by down and out.
Spent my money, took my car,
Started tellin’ her friends she’ goin’ be a star.
I don’t know, but I’ve been told
A Big legged woman ain’t got no soul

All I ask for, when I pray,
Steady rollin’ of woman gonna come my way.
need a woman gonna hold my hand
tell me no lies, makes me a happy man.
