The only cover-song ever recorded by the group. Eventhough at least half of the band were and are devoted fans of The Beatles, a Led Zeppelin track was chosen for this first attempt at song recording. Maybe it was out of respect for The Beatles, the group secretly admitting to themselves that they wouldn’t have much of a chance doing justice to Led Zeppelin’s otherwise classic ballad.
Michael: A strange choice for a cover-song - considering that the rest of the tape is quite "hard" - but I guess we liked it at the time so there it is… we could have bothered to tune up the guitars… and brush our teeth... and shower...
Mikkel: The only song from the first tape that was still being performed live four years later. It isn't our own song either. This cover is nothing compared to the Zep's original, but with time it became one of the great songs at our concerts - and at the end of the day I would claim that we did a really good job of it! It's just a shame that we didn't wait with recording it...
Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You, lyrics:
Babe, baby, baby I’m gonna leave you
I said baby, you know, I’m Gonna leave you
I’ll leave you when the summertime, leave you when the summer comes a’rollin’
Leave you when the summer comes along
Baby, baby, baby I don’t wanna leave you
I ain’t joking woman, I’ve got to ramble
Oh yeah, baby, baby, I won’t be there, I really got to ramble
I can hear it calling me the way it used to do, I can hear it calling me back home
That when it calls me, I said that’s when it calls me, back home
