A fool in love
A crazy situation
Her velvet glove
Knocks me down and down and down and down

Her kiss of fire
A loaded invitation
Inside her smile
She takes me down and down and down and down

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah

Her moves look good
A touch of desperation
From where I stood
She turned my head around, round and round

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

It comes kinda hard
When I hear your voice on the radio (When I hear your voice on the radio)
Taking me back down the road that leads back to you
Oh, oh, oh
29 Palms
I feel the heat of your desert heart (Feel the heat of your desert heart)
Taking me back down the road that leads back to you

Oh, I'm burning in love
Oh, strange infatuation
Why a cold, cold touch
Mm, what must I do and do and do and do?

The heat and the dust
Increase my desolation
In God we trust
Always for you and you and you and you

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

It comes kinda hard
When I hear your voice on the radio (When I hear your voice on the radio)
Leading me back down the road that leads back to you
Oh, oh, oh
29 Palms
I feel the heat of your desert heart (Feel the heat of your desert heart)
Leading me back down the road that leads back to you


Baby, now it comes kinda hard
When I hear your voice on the radio (When I hear your voice on the radio)
Leading me back down the road that leads back to you
Oh, don't you hear me, baby, now?
29 Palms
I feel the heat of your desert heart (Feel the heat of your desert heart)
Leading me back down the road that leads back to you, you, you, yeah, yeah

I'm comin' home
Uh-huh
Gonna get there, gonna get there
Don't ya know, baby?
It comes kinda hard
I said, when I hear your voice on the radio
Leading me back down, down the road
That leads back to, ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo
29 Palms

Or, shift one letter and you get Psalm 29:
The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.

OK, it's probably about the California town of the same name, and/or Alannah Myles.
I heard this on the radio earlier today...

She left twenty-nine broken hearts
Broken in twenty-nine parts
Now there are twenty-nine fellas complainin' to their moms
About the lady from 29 Palms

She got twenty-nine Cadillacs
Twenty-nine sables from Sak's
They came from twenty-nine fellas who never had their arms
Around the lady from 29 Palms

She's a yip-yip-yippy-eyed dolly
A new kinda gal of the west
And yip-yip-yippy by-golly
Whatever she does, she does her best

She rides twenty-nine trails to bliss
Knows twenty-nine ways how to kiss
She is a gal that you dream of, you'd love to have your arms
Around the lady from 29 Palms

She left twenty-nine broken hearts, baby
Broken in twenty-nine parts were their broken hearts, mmm oy-da doy-da
Twenty-nine fellas complainin' to their moms
About the lady from 29 Palms

She got twenty-nine Cadillacs, baby
Twenty-nine sables from Sak's and them Cadillacs, mmm boy-da doy-da
Twenty-nine fellas who never had their arms
Around the lady from 29 Palms

She's a yippety-yippety-yippety-eye-oh, what a dolly
A bronco that no one can break
And yippety-yippety-yippety-eye-oh, by-golly
She's never giving, but how she takes

She's got twenty-nine diamond rings
Got, got, got 'em without any strings (Wow!)
A dynamite dreamboat, a load of atom bombs (Who?)
The lady from 29 Palms
The lady from 29 Palms

Performed by the Andrews Sisters in 1947.

Glad you play more Plant tham Led Zep. I always found that everything he did solo was better than the Zep stuff.
A unique voice and a creative mind continues to give us some very tasty tunes.

Sounds like Robert doing a Fleetwood Mac song.

always enjoyed his music, but his lyrics always seemed a bit far-fetched.
"From the very beginning of this project, around January 1991, right after the Manic Nirvana tour, I knew what I was going to do: go back into my past, listening to  Grape, the  AirplaneTim HardinQuicksilverTraffic, and other turning-point artists in rock. These people were trying to tell the listener something, joining various traditions, with the sense of a quest being insinuated and bandied in their acoustic and electronic themes. I'm also proud of what I've attempted to do lyrically , trying to tell vivid tales that come from a hearty tradition of prose.

There used to be a small shop on the edge of town that made the best date (as in fruit) milk shakes.  Otherwise, yeah, hot and nowhere.

The song, however, is really good.  I've enjoyed Plant's solo career.

this is definetively, the one and only song from Robert Plant I actually like... might be because he was thinking about Alannah... 
In contrast to other Robert Plant songs I might actually rate it positively ... I know he'll sleep better after reading my comment!

From songfacts.com:
"According to Alannah Myles Facebook page: "Alannah & Robert became an item after her meteoric rise to fame. Torn between her hard won success and loving his philandering heart, she chose music and has never looked back. During their recording separation she wrote an orchestrated ballad 'Song Instead Of A Kiss' revealing lost love, he wrote an ode to her favourite place in the California dessert, '29 Palms'. " 

Personally, I love the song...the crisp acoustic guitar driving the rhythm, the tight beat, the catchy melody, and the cool backstory about two musicians...yup, interesting.

Can't believe I never rated this one.  Nice to see the comments below and get the back story.  Makes me appreciate this more, and Black Velvet, too.

The funny thing is,  I saw Alannah Myles open up for Robert Plant back in 1989.    I see the connection now!

As the media would have you believe, yellow journalism is alive and well. I'm still waiting on the expose on the extreme and extremely damaging over reporting of spill consequences. I live on the Florida Gulf coast, not a drop or a bit here - but the reporting crippled our local economy horribly. Likewise, just under 6,700 dead birds (from all causes, roughly half attributed to the spill) were collected in the spill cleanup - yet the eminent extinction of the Brown Pelican was widely reported.

Compare to over 30,000 birds that die from contact with wind turbines annually.

A popular poster features an oily octopus grasping the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida dripping with crude - although contact with sheet oil was limited to Louisiana, and significant tar balls from the spill largely ended at Pensacola on the Florida/Alabama state line. Seafood producers, including families making a living for generations are devastated by a continuing reluctance on  the part of consumers to eat our wonderful, healthy Gulf seafood.

Environmental causes are not being helped by crying Wolf. The truth is bad enough.  Bad enough to back legislation, action, reform, protection and caution in every quarter.

The truth is what we need to be confident in our ability to measure and evaluate. The truth is what we have not had. If this amount of obsfucation, fantasy, projection and outright lies had been perpetrated in the arena of politics, religion or even sports, the fabricators would be a memory in professional objective journalism.

I'm from South Louisiana originally and still work and visit family there frequently. By no means do I intend to belittle or misstate the real and lasting effects of the spill - but I do call for a realistic accounting from those who created panic and economic disaster where there was no cause.
We need to act on truth.
 Droidac wrote:
That's a rather optomistic thought. I think we're being told far less that what we should be. There's no way that much oil can just vanish.
 
Sure there is.  There are bacteria in the oceans that eat crude oil - that's why natural seepage from the ocean floor hasn't fouled the oceans.  They're much more active in the Gulf of Mexico than in some of the colder latitudes, and will do much if not most of the cleanup.  There have even been those suggesting the dispersants used hindered the bacteria, slowing down the natural cleanup.

Actually it is possible that much of the oil has been broken down by bacteria. There are oil eating microbes in the Gulf. There was a similar oil disaster in 1979 off Mexico where an explosion on a rig left an oil pipe spewing oil for 9 months before it was stopped. Five years later scientists could find no trace of that oil. Nature sometimes has a way of dealing with these man made disasters.

Yeah, he's really ridin' on her coattails. {#Beat}
Yanking this thread back onto the actual SONG - there are a LOT of 29 Palms in the world - Californja doesn't hold the monopoly. Besides, it's just a fun song, with that ringing guitar and the mellowswing beat. I've never listened too closely to the words, because I'm a writer. I know enough words - I'd rather quote Joe Perry and "Let the music do the talking."

Robert Plant is a chameleon - he rocked with Zep, had an eclectic and always-interesting solo career, and has toured with Allison Krause (country.) I love it that he's so varied, and so good at it all!

And, I just love this song. I made the drive from Oregon to Nevada, across the desert, with this song and cassette (well, I have it on CD now) and there are memories that I will forever associate with it. Say what you will - Robert Plant is an icon. (I have a friend who named her philodendron "Robert.")

.... He says of the Nobel Prize-winning campaigner for fighting climate change, Vietnam combat veteran, author, and advocate for viewer-created and citizen journalism - who graduated cum laude from Harvard. Because the alternative was obviously SO much better: An ignorant, C-average, draft-dodging, failed-businessman, wanna-be macho cowboy from Texas who was such a fantastically brave and tough President, and did such a great job sending young men abroad to die doing a job similar to the one he himself was unwilling to do when his country was at war in his youth.

What an ignorant statement.

Yeah, it's mostly just an auto oasis and the center of the nothing that is out there.  But there is (or used to be) a place there that you can buy the best date shake in the world.  Great song by a guy who, imo, has made quite a nice solo careeer.

Guess what... the facts are that Somalia was GWH Bush's war, he was the one who decided to go in that mess and handed it over to Clinton as soon as he got in office, otherwise we would never have been there. And we never went to war in Darfur under either Clinton or Bush, so what you are saying about that completely makes no sense. We've been at war in Iraq for 5 years now, and your comparison math on killings doesn't add up right by any objective measure or criteria. Maybe before spouting off you could both check your spelling and your facts.

As to the left loving it when people die, that kind of smear just maked you look as ridiculous as your nonsensical hate speech is. Nobody likes it when people die, except a few nutjobs in prison who committed a sadistic crime. Everyone wants several basic things in life, to prosper in their chosen work, to prosper in their material life, to prosper in their love life, to be safe from harm, and to live as good a life as possible. Most of us, hopefully, wish to give back to society and others. We just disagree on how to get there. You and your pals think we should spend most of our money on fighting Iraqis so that we can 'stay safe from terrorists' or keep our oil supply so we can pay exorbitant prices for gas, while the vast majority of the rest of us in the country would instead like to use that money for roads, schools, creating jobs, and fixing places like New Orleans. Perhaps sometime you could try to convince us your approach works better with persuasive logic instead of using falsehoods and smears.

And this is a great album by Robert Plant, one of my favorite CD's these days.


I always liked this album, as well as this song.

There is another song called Promised Land on this disc that is as good as anything he has ever done solo. IMO, of course.
After spending two days in Joshua Tree National Park with my honey, and staying in Twentynine Palms, CA, this song takes on a whole new meaning.



Sounds like Roy Orbison, rather than Plant, for a change
It's summer again! :guitarist:
You can buy this CD for $0.29 on Amazon. Great music, sort of timeless.

That is giving me the giggles. Thanks
Good song, good album. I also like "I Believe". (It sounds like he's saying 29 "Parms". )
Mighty White...yawn.
Plant's best since Zep!!!
There are some artists Bill will play regardless of music quality. Robbie's one of them.
Always have loved this song....

Yes, In Planty circles this is understood to be the truth. :cool:

First few notes of this song always make me excited -- I think I'm going to hear Tweeter and the Monkey Man. Bill, please, please, please play some Travelling Wilburies. (Thanks in advance!)
