Walter's Walk - Led Zeppelin (music)


Silent woman, in the night you came
Took my seed from my shakin' frame
Same old fire, another flame
And the wheel rolls on

Silent woman, through the flames you come
From the deep behind the sun
Kissed my nightmares, my lovin' gun
Left me barely holdin' on, hold, hold

Blazin' eyes see the tremblin' hand
When we know the time has come
Ooh, blinded senses lose command
Feel your healin' rivers run

Is it every time I fall
That I think this is the one
Ooh, in the darkness can you hear me call
Another day has just begun, another day, yeah


Silent woman, my own face does change
Some know the way it's become
Feel my fire needs a brand-new flame
And the wheel rolls on, rolls on, rolls on, rolls on, yeah
Rolls on

Influences: It has been said that a bass riff in The Wanton Song is very similar to one from the song Walter's Walk, recorded in 1972 (but not released until 1982 on Coda).
