Led Zeppelin - The Ocean (Live at Madison Square Garden 1973)

You're watching Led Zeppelin perform 'The Ocean' live at Madison Square Garden in 1973

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.


Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain

Hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain

Got no time to pack my bags, my foots outside the door

I got a date, I can't be late, for the high hopes hailla ball.

Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar

Play for free, I play for me and play a whole lot more, more!

Singing about the good things and the sun that lights the day

I used to sing on the mountains, has the ocean lost its way.

I don't know.

Sitting round singing songs 'til the night turns into day

Used to sing about the mountains but the mountains washed away

Now I'm singing all my songs to the girl who won my heart

She is only three years old and it's a real fine way to start.

Oh yeah!

It sure is fine!

Ah blow my mind!

Oh when the tears are goin' down!

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Ooh so good!
