It doesn't make any difference what instrument it is. Just enjoy it like I did in the 60s on up till now. I'm 57 now.

This song has everything that made Zeppelin great...
Too f,7,,& AWSOME
Gallows pole greatest Page and Plant
Daverussell3 7 , it's a banjo. Sounds nothing like a mandolin.
Definitely a banjo
She's got what you need to keep you from the "Gallow's Pole"
Outstanding
I love this album. And @daverussell 3 7 , I believe it actually is a banjo. I happen to play one. It may be a 6 string banjo-guitar , as opposed to a traditional 5 string banjo. Def doesnt sound like a mando to me...

It's a mandolin... Not a banjo. Dork!
Yes I do. Must be over-dubbing , or something like it. Really fits!
Do I hear a banjo?
Maybe it's based on geography. :-)
Not sure how gallows pole wound up on a southern rock station, but thanks anyway. Love this song!
Legendary quality. Virtuosity untold. Traditional wleded to rock. A classic.
Maybe Southern English Rock at its finest.
Just one great example of Zepp's collective genius. LZ 3 was a mindblower for many. It is still top shelf tunes.

Saw zep 1977 what a show 3 hours triple neck guitar rock on
Thank you pandora, for Gallows Pole!
Nice bass line.

I remember another version of the lyrics that had him freed and the sister was swingin` from the gallows pole.
This is very similar to what his Band of Joy is doing now!

boncer3 has a good point. when i saw robert plant in 2005, every other tune in the set was a Zep song, but they were all the traditional songs that Zep covered, which he did interesting versions of, including gallows pole. What a show that was!
hahahaha - I always thought it was "Hang me, Hang me, oh for a little while" - HA!!! My bad!
Very Kool Boncer,i love rock history
This song (like "When the Levee Breaks" on Led Zep IV) is not an original Led Zeppelin song, but a cover of a much older blues song. For both, contrasting the LZ version with the original is interesting. "When the Levee Breaks" was Memphis Minnie; "Gallows Pole" was Leadbelly, and later Fred Gerlach.
I remember Hearing Gallows Pole live in Minneapolis, God what a memory, The Zeppelin tunes soothe my very soul.
this song is what Led Zeppelin was all about... hands-down.. . keltic backgrounds and such.
Heh... these songs take me back to the misty, magical time of high school. :-) I love it!
albivona1
This song takes me back to a misty, magical, mystical time...
danamm27
I love how some of Zeppelins songs send me back to another time in some other mystical place.
Honestly...I ' v e never heard this song....I am a huge Zep fan but feel so upset that I've never heard this song...or at least REALLY heard this song....Fant a s t i c . . . G r e a t start to my vacation..
...Outstandi n g Zep,....one of their best!
Top 5 Zep song.
panter_james
now i luagh and pull so hard, see ya swingin on the gallows pole...
and its got a banjo, what else could you want in a song.
MAY THE HAMMER OF THE GODS STRIKE YOU DOWN!
I have to agree with Steve here. But you can't lose either way!
Incredible song - but I confess to blasphemy - I like the "Unledded" version with M. Lee on drums better - the joy of this 1970 tune getting blasted live wins over the orig studio. Robert and Jimmy getting pushed by their younger band - the tune rocks.
