From: "Jeffrey K. Krinks" <"krinks@apk.net"@apk.net>
Subject: TAB: The Ocean: Led Zeppelin

Here is most all the tab for Zep's the Ocean, not including guitar two.
The opening riff goes like this:

Guitar 1: Six string electric: opening riff: 
e--------------------------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------------------------------------
D--7--7------------------------5--7--7--7-----------------------5--7-
A--------7--5------5--7--5--7-------------7--5-------5--7--5--7------
E-------------8--8------------------------------8--8-----------------

Here's the part throught most all of the lyrics, just four chords:

Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain
e---------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------
G--7--7--7--7--5--5--5--5-----------7--7--7--7
D--7--7--7--7--5--5--5--5--7--5--7--7--7--7--7
A--5--5--5--5--3--3--3--3--7--5--7--5--5--5--5
E--5--5--5--5--3--3--3--3--5--3--5--5--5--5--5

Just repeat those two main riffs, and that's 95% of the song, there is 
also guitar 2, which I don't know, I'm still trying to figure it out.

Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain
hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain
Ain't no time to pack my bag, my foots outside the door
Got a date, can't be late for the hopes hailla ball.

Singing to an ocean, I can hear the oceans roar
Play for free, play for me and play for a whole lot more
Singing of the good things and the sun that lights the day
Singing to the Ocean, has the ocean lost its way?

Sitting round singing songs till the night turns into day
Used to sing on 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 its a real fine way to start.
