Your Time is Gonna Come
Jimmy Page & John Paul Jones

Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin I
I was fooling around with this the other day,
and it turned out to be so easy that it's
going up on my page.  The organ part is great
too, so if you play organ, try it.  Also,
you have to fingerpick this, you can't do
it with a pick.

The intro is all organ, but this part comes in when the drums enter. It's also played under all the verses. It just keeps repeating. Jimmy fingerpicks it.

The lead-in to the chorus looks like this: + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + e:-------------5---|-------7-------5-|-------3-------3-|-------5-------3-| B:---------7-------|-----5-------5---|-----5-------5---|-----3-------3---| G:-----7-----------|---6-------6-----|---5-------5-----|---4-------4-----| D:-0---------------|-0-------0-------|-0-------0-------|-0-------0-------| A:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| E:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
The chorus is just two chords plus the thing on the end: D G Your time is gonna come D G Your time is gonna come D G Your time is gonna come D G Your time is gonna come Then Jimmy does this thing. It sounds like he shapes the chords and pats the strings to make that noise. Use your thumb on 6th string for D/G and D/F#.

That's all the guitar parts. Here are the lyrics to go along with them. VERSE Lyin' cheatin' hurtin' That's all you seem to do Messin' around every guy in town Puttin' me down for thinkin' of someone new Always the same playin' your game Drive me insane trouble's gonna come to you One of these days and it won't be long You'll look for me but baby I'll be gone
LEAD-IN This is all I gotta say to you woman CHORUS Your time is gonna come Your time is gonna come Your time is gonna come Your time is gonna come
VERSE Made up my mind to break you this time Won't be so fine it's my turn to cry Do want you want I won't take the brunt It's fadin' away can't feel you anymore Don't care what you say 'cause I'm goin' away to stay Gonna make you pay for that great big hole in my heart People talkin' all around watch out woman No longer is the joke gonna be on my heart
LEAD-IN You been bad to me woman but it's coming back home to you CHORUS
Then it goes into Black Mountain Side.
