Led Zeppelin - Bron-y-aur Stomp - Lyrics Meaning

Bron-y-aur Stomp was released on the led Zeppelin III album in 1970.

In the beginning of the song, it easy to think that the song is about a man and a woman. The lyrics center around a happy relationship between the couple. It doesn't matter where they go, they always travel together and the love that they have for each other is strong even though so many loves don't last.

In the next section of the song, Robert Plant sings about a blue-eyed merle. At that point, we discover that the other "person" that plant is singing to is his dog - an Australian Shepherd named Strider. As the song continues, Plant describes the relationship he has with his dog. He describes how they take walks down country lanes and that it is a pure friendship. In the final part of the song, Robert Plant tells his dog that when he gets old and his eyes get dim, he won't get another dog to replace him. Plant will continue taking walks, calling the dog's name, and singing the same songs that he did when the dog was younger.

Although this song was written about Plant's dog, it easily transfers to any person's relationship with a pet.
