  1. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Gimme Three Steps
    Album: Lynyrd Skynyrd [pronounced leh-nerd skin-nerd] (1973)

    I was cutting the rug
    Down at a place called The Jug
    With a girl named Linda Lu
    When in walked a man
    With a gun in his hand
    And he was looking for you know who
    He said, "Hey there fellow
    With the hair colored yellow
    Watcha tryin' to prove?
    'Cause that's my woman there
    And I'm a man who cares
    And this might be all for you"

    I was scared and fearing for my life
    I was shakin' like a leaf on a tree
    'Cause he was lean, mean
    Big and bad, Lord
    Pointin' that gun at me
    I said, "Wait a minute, mister
    I didn't even kiss her
    Don't want no trouble with you
    And I know you don't owe me
    But I wish you'd let me
    Ask one favor from you"

    "Won't you give me three steps
    Gimme three steps mister
    Gimme three steps towards the door?
    Gimme three steps
    Gimme three steps mister
    And you'll never see me no more"

    Well the crowd cleared away
    And I began to pray
    As the water fell on the floor
    And I'm telling you son
    Well, it ain't no fun
    Staring straight down a forty-four
    Well he turned and screamed at Linda Lu
    And that's the break I was looking for
    And you could hear me screaming a mile away
    As I was headed out towards the door

    "Won't you give me three steps
    Gimme three steps mister
    Gimme three steps towards the door?
    Gimme three steps
    Gimme three steps mister
    And you'll never see me no more"
