    Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd

    Lyrics:

    Mama told me when I was young
    Come sit beside me my only son
    And listen closely to what I say
    And if you do this it'll help you
    some sunny day. Oh Yah!

    Oh take your time don't live too fast
    troubles will come and they will pass
    Go find a woman and you'll find love
    And don't forget son there is someone up above

    And be a simple kind of man
    Oh be something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh won't you do this for me son if you can?

    Forget your lust, for the rich man's gold
    All that you need is in your soul
    And you can do this Oh baby if you try
    All that I want for you my son is to be satisfied

    And be a simple kind of man
    Oh be something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh won't you do this for me son if you can?

    Boy don't you worry, you'll find yourself
    Follow your heart and nothing else
    And you can do this Oh baby if you try
    All that I want for you my son is to be satisfied

    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh won't you do this for me son if you can?
    Baby be a simple, be a simple man.

    Summary:
    Just three and a half months before the fateful plane crash that killed Skynyrd members Steve Gaines, his sister, backing vocalist Cassie Gaines (of the Honkettes), and lead vocalist Ronnie Van Zandt, Lynyrd Skynyrd played this 4th of July weekend program in Oakland.

    While this is only a partial recording of the show, two of the three songs are probably the ones you would skip to anyway: Sweet Home Alabama and the legendary closing track that has inspired legions of concert-going yokels to make millions of ironic requests over the years, Free Bird. The first track is an excerpt of a standard Skynyrd live show cover, Jimmie Rodgers' T for Texas The guys take six minutes to stretch their legs on this version of Sweet Home Alabama. The song had been released three years prior as a response song to the Neil Young numbers Southern Man and Alabama, which were both critical of southern politics. Ironically, by some reports, Van Zant was wearing a Neil Young t-shirt at the time of this performance.

    The show is closed with Free Bird, which by many fans' estimations is only rivaled by Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven as the most epic closing song in rock history. Allen Collins handles most of the five-minute solo, while Gary Rossington plays the bird-chirp guitar parts, which are not on the original recording, as well as the slide work on the opening riffs. Billy Powell also plays a masterful piano solo that is unique to the live show.

    While Lynyrd Skynyrd would release the multi-platinum Street Survivors in October of 1977, the band's structure would be fundamentally devastated by the crash of their private Convair 240 that took the lives of three members, as well as the pilots and assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, and terribly injured every other member, except for Honkette, JoJo Billingsley, who was at home with her children and had reportedly begged the band to quit using the plane after dreaming of such a crash.

    From the ashes of this Skynyrd incarnation, Van Zant's younger brother, Johnny, stepped in and made Lynyrd Skynyrd a popular band once more when they reformed in 1987. Lynyrd Skynyrd is planning to release an unearthed recording of pre-plane crash Skynyrd in 2009.

    Summary:
    After years of life on the road and with their role models, the Allman Brothers Band, struggling to survive the deaths of two of its most distinctively talented members, today Lynyrd Skynyrd has become the quintessential Southern Rock band. Under the leadership of frontman and primary songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, the group's melodic lyric driven ballads and power driven hard rockers would catapult the group into one of the most popular touring bands in the world. The group's distinctive guitar attack, combined with an overtly defiant and rebellious attitude, gave them a cultural identity that would help make songs like Sweet Home Alabama and Free Bird into anthems of American rock music and staples of FM radio right up to the present day.

    Headlining a bill that also featured the Outlaws, this Winterland recording captures Lynyrd Skynyrd following the release of their fourth album, Gimme Back My Bullets. This was during a transitional phase for the band, following the departure of guitarist Ed King, but prior to his replacement, Steve Gaines, coming on board. The band was carrying on as a six-piece unit, augmented by the Honkettes on backing vocals.

    This is an interesting time to hear the band live, as their trademark three-guitar attack was reduced by one guitar, leaving more room for keyboardist Billy Powell. On the ballads, like Tuesdays Gone and the pre-jam verses of Freebird, Powell displays great creativity and expands the keyboard's role in these songs.

    Otherwise, the band rocks as hard as ever, with a good selection of their most popular songs, sampling a bit from all four of their studio albums. The group's defiant Southern swagger, combined with an infectious guitar and piano driven groove, creates an irresistible combination that resonated far beyond the Southern states. Two of the standouts on this show are both well chosen covers, which the band redefines as their own; J.J. Cale's Call Me The Breeze and Jimmy Rogers' T For Texas. Both of these are rearranged in classic Skynyrd style, with the latter closing the set and clearly displaying the root sound of the band at its best.

    The audience demands an encore and the band obliges with a monumental Free Bird. It begins as a plaintive slow ballad, with Van Zant's distinctively sad vocals over the melodic keyboard playing of Powell and delicate slide guitar ornamentation from Rossington. However, it is the second section, which becomes an up-tempo guitar boogie, that really hits home. Here the guitarists cut loose to create one of the most distinctive solos of all time. Rossington and Collins turn this section into a soaring jam that also features impressive melodic bass playing from Wilkeson and furious keyboards from Powell. Following a brief reprise of the song, they turn on a dime back into the groove of the jam before bringing it to a climactic close.

    Free Bird, more often than not, sarcastically, would become the most requested song of all time. For musicians, this inevitable request has become so tiresome, that the act of requesting it has become universally known as the mantra of the moron. Still, this only goes to prove just how deeply this song has permeated American culture and is a testament to its enduring popularity, making it one of the true landmark rock songs of twentieth century music.

    LYRICS

    Broken bones, broken hearts
    Stripped down and torn apart
    A little bit of rust - I'm still runnin'

    Countin' miles, countin' tears
    Twisted roads, shiftin' gears
    Year after year - it's all or nothin'

    But I'm not home, I'm not lost
    Still holdin' on to what I got
    Ain't much left
    No there's so much that's been stolen
    I guess I've lost everything I've had
    But I'm not dead, at least not yet
    Still alone, still alive, Still UNBROKEN
    I'm still alone, still alive,
    I'M STILL UNBROKEN

    Never captured, never tamed
    Wild horses on the plains
    You can call me lost - I call it FREEDOM

    I feel the spirit in my soul
    It's something Lord I can't control
    I'M NEVER GIVIN UP WHILE I'M STILL BREATHIN!

    I'm not home, I'm not lost
    Still holdin' on to what I got
    Ain't much left
    Lord there's so much that's been stolen
    I guess I've lost everything I've had
    I'm not dead, at least not yet
    Still alone, still alive, Still UNBROKEN
    I'm still alone, still alive,
    STILL UNBROKEN
    I'm still unbroken
    Still Unbroken

    Like the wind, like the rain
    It's all runnin through my veins
    Like a river pouring down into the ocean

    I'm out here on the streets
    But I'm standing on my feet
    Still alive, still alone, still unbroken

    I'm not home, I'm not lost
    Still holdin' on to what I got
    Ain't much left
    Lord there's so much that's been STOLEN
    Guess I've lost everything I've had
    But I'm not dead, at least not yet
    Still alive, still alone, Still Unbroken
    I'm still alone, still alive,
    I'M STILL UNBROKEN

    I'M STILL ALONE!
    STILL ALIVE!
    STILL UNBROKEN!
    I'M STILL UNBROKEN!

    I ain't never going down!
    I'M STILL UNBROKEN!
    Oooooooh-Ooooooh!

    well I used to wake the mornin
    befor the rooster crowed
    searchin for soda bottles to get myself some dough
    brought 'em down to the corner
    down to the country store
    cash 'em in and give my money to a man named Curtis Lowe
    old Curt was a black man with white curly hair
    when he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care
    he used to own an old dobro used to play across his knee
    I'd give old Curt my money he play all day for me

    (chours)
    play me a song Curtis Lowe, Curtis Lowe
    well I got your drinkin' money tune up your dobro
    people said he was useless them people all were fools
    'cause Curtis Lowe was the finest picker to ever play the blues

    well he looked to be 60, maybe I was 10
    momma used to whoop me
    but I'd go see him again
    I'd clap my hands, stomp my feet tryin to stay in time
    well he'd play me a song or two then take another drink of wine

    (chours)
    play me a song Curtis Lowe, Curtis Lowe
    well I got your drinkin money tune up your dobro
    people said he was useless but them people all were fools
    'cause Curtis Lowe was the finest picker to ever play the blues

    on the day old Curtis died nobody came to pray
    old preacher said some words
    and they chucked him in the clay
    well he lived a lifetime playin' the black man's blues
    and on the day he lost his life that's all he had to lose

    (chours)
    play me a song Curtis Lowe, yeah Curtis Lowe
    I wish that you was here so everyone would know
    people said you was useless but them people all were fools
    cause Curtis youre the finest picker to ever play the blues

    Live concert in Nashville, Tennessee (2003). It was during their Vicious Cycle Tour, and marked the band's 30 years of rock 'n roll.

    Free Bird was first featured on the band's debut album in 1973. Released as a single in November 1974, it became the band's second Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1975, where it peaked at #19. A live version of the song also reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1977, peaking at #38. Free Bird also achieved the #3 spot on Guitar World's 100 Greatest Guitar Solos.

    The lyrical portion of the song was written early in the group's history. Roadie Billy Powell was discovered as a keyboardist for the band when he played the intro piece to Free Bird at a high school prom. Lead vocalist Ronnie Van Zant noted his talent and invited him to join.

    Allen Collins's then-girlfriend, Kathy, whom he later married, asked him, If I leave here tomorrow would you still remember me? Collins jotted the question down and it eventually became the opening line of Free Bird.

    Slide guitar Gary Rossington played a Gibson SG and used a glass Coricidin bottle for a slide on this song to emulate one of his heroes, Duane Allman. This was the only song he used a guitar other than a Les Paul on. He also stuck a nail-like piece of metal under the strings near the nut to raise the action of the guitar when playing slide. The guitar's B string was tuned down to a G during this song. Rossington currently uses two G strings tuned to G instead of tuning down a B string.

Under the leadership of frontman and primary songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, the group's melodic lyric driven ballads and power driven hard rockers would catapult the group into one of the most popular touring bands in the world. The group's distinctive guitar attack, combined with an overtly defiant and rebellious attitude, gave them a cultural identity that would help make songs like Sweet Home Alabama and Free Bird into anthems of American rock music and staples of FM radio right up to the present day.

    Headlining a bill that also featured the Outlaws, this Winterland recording captures Lynyrd Skynyrd following the release of their fourth album, Gimme Back My Bullets. This was during a transitional phase for the band, following the departure of guitarist Ed King, but prior to his replacement, Steve Gaines, coming on board. The band was carrying on as a six-piece unit, augmented by the Honkettes on backing vocals.

    This is an interesting time to hear the band live, as their trademark three-guitar attack was reduced by one guitar, leaving more room for keyboardist Billy Powell. On the ballads, like Tuesdays Gone and the pre-jam verses of Freebird, Powell displays great creativity and expands the keyboard's role in these songs.

    Otherwise, the band rocks as hard as ever, with a good selection of their most popular songs, sampling a bit from all four of their studio albums. The group's defiant Southern swagger, combined with an infectious guitar and piano driven groove, creates an irresistible combination that resonated far beyond the Southern states. Two of the standouts on this show are both well chosen covers, which the band redefines as their own; J.J. Cale's Call Me The Breeze and Jimmy Rogers' T For Texas. Both of these are rearranged in classic Skynyrd style, with the latter closing the set and clearly displaying the root sound of the band at its best.

    The audience demands an encore and the band obliges with a monumental Free Bird. It begins as a plaintive slow ballad, with Van Zant's distinctively sad vocals over the melodic keyboard playing of Powell and delicate slide guitar ornamentation from Rossington. However, it is the second section, which becomes an up-tempo guitar boogie, that really hits home. Here the guitarists cut loose to create one of the most distinctive solos of all time. Rossington and Collins turn this section into a soaring jam that also features impressive melodic bass playing from Wilkeson and furious keyboards from Powell. Following a brief reprise of the song, they turn on a dime back into the groove of the jam before bringing it to a climactic close.

    Free Bird, more often than not, sarcastically, would become the most requested song of all time. For musicians, this inevitable request has become so tiresome, that the act of requesting it has become universally known as the mantra of the moron. Still, this only goes to prove just how deeply this song has permeated American culture and is a testament to its enduring popularity, making it one of the true landmark rock songs of twentieth century music.

  • I got a quick sideways glance for playing Lynyrd Skynyrd, but crickets are still my only audience

    2:59

    Borat would say, Great success! Occasionally, I cut through the apathy and get a sideways glance from the ladies. 0:44 It's not a tip, but it's better than nothing. Did she mentally send me her phone number? If so, I've long forgotten it. This is a cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'I know a little' from 1977, their last album before the plane crash. As usual, no reaction, except from the crickets at the end. Maybe I should do Buddy Holly songs, as I've already got the back up band.

    3:32

    Well, its 8 o'clock in Boise, Idaho
    I'll find my limo driver
    Mister, take us to the show
    I done made some plans for later on tonight
    I'll find a little queen
    And I know I can treat her right.

    (Chorus)
    What's your name, little girl?
    What's your name?
    Shootin' you straight, little girl?
    Won't you do the same?.

    Back at the hotel
    Lord we got such a mess
    It seems that one of the crew
    Had a go with one of the guests, oh yes
    Well, the police said we can't drink in the bar
    What a shame
    Won't you come upstairs girl
    And have a drink of champagne

    What's your name, little girl?

    Shootin' you straight, little girl?
    For there ain't no shame.

    (Chorus)

    To do one more show, oh no
    Can I get you a taxi home
    It sure was grand
    When I come back here next year
    I wanna see you again

    What was your name, little girl?
    What's your name?
    Shootin' you straight, little girl?
    Well there ain't no shame
    What was your name, little girl?
    What's your name?
    Shootin' you straight, little girl?
    Won't you do the same?

  • Lynyrd Skynyrd - All I Can Do Is Write About It

    4:34

    Well this life that I've lead has took me everywhere
    There ain't no place I ain't never gone
    But its kind of like the saying that you heard so many times
    Well there just ain't no plae like home
    Did you ever see a she-gator protect her young
    Or a fish in a river swimming free
    Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina
    Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennessee
    And Lord I can't make any changes
    All I can do is write 'em in a song
    I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
    Lord take me and mine before that comes

    Do you like to see a mountain stream a-flowin'
    Do you like to see a youngun with his dog
    Did you ever stop to think about, well, the air your breathin'
    Well you better listen to my song
    And Lord I can't make any changes
    All I can do is write 'em in a song
    I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
    Lord take me and mine before that comes

    I'm not tryin' to put down no big cities
    But the things they write about us is just a bore
    Well you can take a boy out of ol' Dixieland
    But you'll never take ol' Dixie from a boy
    And Lord I can't make any changes
    All I can do is write 'em in a song
    I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
    Lord take me and mine before that comes
    'Cause I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
    Lord take me and mine before that comes

  • Lynyrd Skynyrd - All I Can Do Is Write About It

    5:13

    All I Can Do Is Write About It is a song performed by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The song is credited as having been written by band members Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant. The song was first released on the band's 1976 album Gimme Back My Bullets and subsequently on the compilations, The Essential Lynyrd Skynyrd and All Time Greatest Hits.
    The song is sung by Ronnie Van Zant, who lived in the Southern United States and is commenting on recent developments occurring at the time. In the song's chorus, Van Zant states that he can see the concrete slowly creeping, the concrete representing the industrial development of the South. The singer also seems to have a great love for the South and mentions that you can take a boy out of old Dixieland, but you'll never take old Dixie from a boy.

    If you don't know what I mean,
    Won't you stand up and scream?
    'Cause there's things goin' on that you don't know.

    Too many lives they've spent across the ocean.
    Too much money been spent upon the moon.
    Well, until they make it right
    I hope they never sleep at night
    They better make some changes
    And do it soon.

    They're goin ruin the air we breathe
    Lord have mercy.
    They're gonna ruin us all, by and by.
    I'm telling you all beware
    I don't think they really care
    I think they just sit up there
    And just get high

  • Lynyrd Skynyrd - Im A Country Boy

    4:16

    New York City is a thousand miles away
    And if you ask me, I'll tell you that's OK
    Now I'm not trying to put the big apple down
    'Cause they don't need a man like me in town
    I pick cotton down on the Dixie line
    Work hard all day tryin' to make a dime
    But that's allright, that's OK by me
    'Cause that's the way that it was meant to be

    Big city, hard times don't bother me
    I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be

    I don't like smoke chokin' up my air
    And some of those city folks well they don't care
    I don't like cars buzzing around
    I don't even want a piece of concrete in my town
    I like sunshine, fresh clean air
    Makes me feel like you wouldn't care but
    that's all right, each to his own
    But one smell from the city
    And this country boy is gone
    Big city, hard times don't bother me
    I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be

    Well, I don't want to even read about it

    Let me tell you something, let me tell you true
    What's right for me might not be right for you
    Well, you live your way, I'll live mine
    And I hope that your happy all the time
    I pick cotton down on the Dixie line
    Work hard all day tryin' to make a dime
    But that's all right, that's OK by me
    'Cause that's the way that it was supposed to be


    Big city, hard times never bother me
    I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be

    Let me tell ya, ... I said
    Big city, hard times never bother me
    I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be
    Ooh, that's my way, baby
    I don't want you to even tell me about the big city
    I don't want to read about it...

  • Neil Young vs. Lynyrd Skynyrd | Musics Greatest Mysteries

    4:27

    When Lynyrd Skynyrd released Sweet Home Alabama, was it really a diss track towards Neil Young? We investigate this mystery plus how “Friends in Low Places” sold to settle a bar tab & the mysteries around Stevie Nicks SUNDAY 9/8c on Music's Greatest Mysteries on AXS TV.

    In the 1970s, Neil Young started writing protest songs against the south including Southern Man and Alabama with the lyrics Now your crosses are burning fast, Southern man and other lyrics pointing out racism in the South, slaveowners, and the KKK. Many Southerns were outraged by the lyrics and one band decided to fight back. Frontman Ronnie Van Zant decided to escalate the beef by responding to Neil Young with what may be the most famous diss track of all time. They fired back with the Southern rock anthem, Sweet Home Alabama and an entire verse pointed at Neil Young. The lyrics were Well I hope Neil Young will remember a southern man don't need him around anyhow. But was the hatred real or just for show and inspiration? We take a loot at the rivalry on Music's Greatest Mysteries.

  • Lynyrd Skynyrd - The Ballad of Curtis Loew

    4:56

    From 1974’s Second Helping.

    Well I used to wake the morning before the rooster crowed
    Searching for soda bottles to get myself some dough
    Brought 'em down to the corner, down to the country store
    Cash 'em in and give my money to a man named Curtis Loew
    Old Curt was a black man with white curly hair
    When he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care
    He used to own an old Dobro, used to play it across his knee
    I'd give old Curt my money, he'd play all day for me
    Play me a song Curtis Loew, Curtis Loew
    Well I got your drinking money, tune up your Dobro
    People said he was useless, them people are the fools
    'Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker to ever play the blues
    He looked to be sixty, and maybe I was ten
    Mama used to whip me but I'd go see him again
    I'd clap my hands, stomp my feets, try to stay in time
    He'd play me a song or two then take another drink of wine
    Play me a song Curtis Loew, Curtis Loew
    Well I got your drinking money, tune up your Dobro
    People said he was useless, them people are the fools
    'Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker to ever play the blues
    Yes sir
    On the day old Curtis died, nobody came to pray
    Ol' preacher said some words, and they chunked him in the clay
    But he lived a lifetime playin' the black man's blues
    And on the day he lost his life, that's all he had to lose
    Play me a song Curtis Loew, hey Curtis Loew
    I wish that you was here so everyone would know
    People said he was useless, them people all are fools
    'Cause Curtis you're the finest picker to ever play the blues

    This is Voodoo Lake from Lynyrd Skynyrd.

    Lyrics:
    Way down yonder you can hear the wind blow
    Through the tall grass growing in the old bayou
    The old bayou

    There's a dark haired woman that looks so fine
    Wearing hand me down clothes, drinking homemade wine
    No one ever knew who her daddy was
    The people down here say it's all because
    She's the daughter of the devil, the sister of a snake
    The keeper of souls down on Vodoo Lake

    There's a city boy across the county line
    Came looking for the legend of the girl so fine
    Well the stories that he heard, well they had to be lies
    But he found out different when he looked inher eyes
    Well he tried to run away but she had control
    He's findin' out now what everybody knows
    He knew it was over when she started to shake
    Now there's one more soul down on Voodoo Lake

    There's an eerie silence at the break of dawn
    A chill in the air, something wrong
    When a shadow crosses the ground
    Those long lost souls never make a sound
    You'd think by now they'd realize
    She'll never break her bayou ties

    She's the daughter of the devil, the sister of a snake
    The keeper of souls down on Voodoo Lake

    Voodoo Lake, Voodoo Lake
    Daughter of the Devil, sister of a snake
    Voodoo Lake
    Down on Voodoo Lake, Down on Voodoo Lake
    You can see her down on Voodoo Lake
