Led Zeppelin - Good Times Bad Times




"Good Times Bad Times" is a song by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, featured as the opening track on their 1969 debut album Led Zeppelin. The song was Led Zeppelin's first single released in the US, where it reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart.


"Good Times Bad Times" was rarely played live at Led Zeppelin concerts in its entirety. In a few instances in 1969 it was used as an introduction to "Communication Breakdown" (as seen in Led Zeppelin "Deluxe Edition"). It also appeared in almost complete form within the "Communication Breakdown" medley performed at the LA Forum on 4 September 1970, where it included a bass solo by Jones (as can be heard on the Led Zeppelin bootleg recording Live on Blueberry Hill), and several "Whole Lotta Love" medleys in 1971.


It was also the opening song for Led Zeppelin's reunion show at the O2 Arena, London on 10 December 2007.






Lyrics

In the days of my youth I was told what it was to be a man Now I've reached the age I've tried to do all those things the best I can No matter how I try I find my way to do the same old jam

Good times, bad times You know I had my share When my woman left home With a brown eyed man Well, I still don't seem to care

Sixteen I fell in love With a girl as sweet as could be Only took a couple of days Till she was rid of me She swore that she would be all mine And love me till the end When I whispered in her ear I lost another friend

Good times, bad times You know I had my share When my woman left home With a brown eyed man Well, I still don't seem to care

Good times, bad times You know I had my share When my woman left home With a brown eyed man Well, I still don't seem to care

I know what it means to be alone I sure do wish I was at home I don't care what the neighbors say I'm gonna love you each and every day You can feel the beat within my heart Realize, sweet babe, we ain't ever gonna part
