Recorded in 1970, “Poor Tom” was remixed for Coda, an album of unreleased tracks that came out after John Bonham died. It was intended for Led Zeppelin III, but didn’t make the cut. Jimmy Page and Robert Plant wrote this at Bron-y-aur, the cottage in Wales where they wrote most of Led Zeppelin III. In the song, Tom finds out his wife is cheating on him and shoots her.
