Sedaka Neil - Stairway To Heaven tab

equent topic of discussion in the tab groups is 'what are the lyrics to
'Stairway To Heaven' about, anyway?'.  Well, the narrator obviously isn't
going to build a *physical* stairway to heaven - for one thing, how could
he move it around without bumping it into everything?  Instead, 'build a
stairway to heaven' is a *metaphor* - like, you know, sometimes words have
two meanings.
