Whoa, the girl i love
She got long black wavy hair

She got long black wavy hair, ah yeah
Her mother and her father, lordy
Sure don't, sure don't like me there

Well ah, I'm going back to my baby, Lord I

I never saw that sweet woman yeah-a
Five long years gone by, yeah
Well I'm going ho-whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa I

Well she's a sweet little darling, I

Well she's my baby, ba-

She shakes like a willow tree, yeah
Ah, that mean mistreater, baby, she knows ya
Haaa humps all over me, ooh

    General CommentIt was on the BBC sessions album, as mentioned above, which is a great cd too, and it is a awesome song, i guess the ones who have that album are the lucky ones that get to hear it : ) Great riff though, i think it has something to do with Plant's wife too.

    General CommentIt's expensive too. But I'm thinking about buying it along with:
    1.Prescence
    2.In through the out door.
    3.Coda
    To complete my collection.
