Down South Jukin'
(Ronnie Van Zant - Gary Rossington)

Well Billy Joe told me, said everything's lookin' fine
He's got the place all secured, got the icebox full of wine
He said hurry on over and don't be late
He got three lovely ladies who just won't wait
Do some down south jukin'
And lookin' for a peace of mind

Now put your Sunday pants on, lets get out on on the road
We been workin' all week, and I'm thinkin' its time we let go
I got three fine mamas sittin all alone, gonna sip our wine and get it on
And do some down south jukin'
Lookin' for a peace of mind

Now come Monday morn we'll be headin' out to the field
And we'll be doin our thing for Papa and ol' Uncle Bill
Lord, but then come Friday night we'll be headin to town
Tryin' to pick up any woman hanging around
And do some down south jukin'
Lookin' for a peace of mindback to top
Preacher's Daughter
(rickey medlocke - ronnie vanzant)

Well, just keep on runnin' mama, 'till you can't run no more
You no your sister told your mama 'bout the boy next door
Well, I see your sugar daddy comin' around the corner
I wonder if he knows your the preacher's daughter, oh no

Well, I seen you through your window, baby, many times before
Yeah there's a hundred different lovers knockin' on your back door
Well, I see your sugar daddy comin' around the corner
I wonder if he knows your the preacher's daughter, oh no

Well, keep on runnin' mama, 'till you can't get no ?
You're just a no good woman lord, I ain't lyin'
Well, I see your sugar daddy comin' around the corner
I wonder if he knows your the preacher's daughter, oh no

And I'm takin' about the preacher's daughter
Doin' what she hadn't oughta
Gettin' on down
With every stud in townback to top
White Dove
(rickey medlocke)

White dove sittin' on a blackberry bush
Is there any questioning why
Tell me what heaven you're bound for today
Feel just like I could cry
Feel just like I could cry

Little squirrel sitting on a ___ ___ rock
Wodering where the winter meal is coming from
Tired of fighting for it, gonna lay down my gun
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is done

Little boy blue now come blow your horn
No more of the sheep is around
Said I'm tired of fighting, gonna lay down my gun
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is doneback to top
Was I Right or Wrong
(gary rossington - ronnie van zant)

Like a restless leaf in the autumn breeze
Once I was a tumblin' weed
Like a rollin' stone, cold and all alone
Living for the day my train would come
I never cared for school or any golden rules
Papa used to always say I was a useless fool
So I left my home to show them thay was wrong
And headed out on the road singing my song
Then one sunny day. the man, he looked my way
And everything that I dreamed of, it was real
Money, girls and cars; and big long cigars
And I caught the first plane home so papa would see

When I went home to show 'em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Papa I only wish you could see me now
Take a listen papa
Whoo, I learnt how to play my guitar
Gonna be a superstar

First I got lost, then I got found
The ones I love are in the ground
Won't you tell me please was I right or wrong

If there's any way you can hear what I say
Papa, I never meant to do you wrong
All the money, girls and cars. and all the words and all the cigars
Papa, I just want you to know they couldn't take your place

When I went home to show 'em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrongback to top
Lend a Helpin' Hand
(allen collins - ronnie van zant - gary rossington)

Oh. now when you think the time's ___
Take a look around
'cause babies are dying from disease
Sleeping out on the ground
People never seen the tortured eyes
From a foreign land. no
When you see somebody who's down and out
Lend a helpin' hand
You better, lend a helpin' hand. if you can
Lend a helpin' hand
Do it if you can

Oh. every time you feed your face
Do you bow your head
Hunger kills each and every day
Won't you share your bread
If you've ever felt the pain inside
I know you'd understand
When you see somebody who's down and out
Lend a helpin' hand
You better, lend a helpin' hand. if you can
Lend a helpin' hand
Do it if you can

Oh. every time you feed that face
Do you look around
For somebody right in your own neighborhood
Sleepin out on the ground
And do some down south jukin'
If you've ever felt the pain inside
I know you'd understand
When you see somebody who's down and out
Lend a helpin' hand
Why don't you, lend a helpin' hand. if you can
Lend a helpin' hand
Won't you please lend a helpin' handback to top
Wino
(ronnie van zant - rickey medlocke - allen collins)

Wino on the street. drinkin' a bottle of booze
Ain't got nothing to say, yeah. and he don't got much to lose
Times are on his face. blisters on his brain
Wonders who's at fault. knows that he's to blame

Thinks back on his childhood and wonders the reasons why
Why some men have made it rich. why some men have cried
Reached out his hand, lord. for a nickel or a dime
Livin' every day, yeah, for one more taste of wine

Wino, soon you've got to choose
How long must you take abuse
Wino, you wasn't born to lose
Sweet wine is making you a fool

Wino on the street. drinkin' a bottle of booze
Ain't got nothing to say, yeah. and he don't got much to lose
I want to help him out with his troubles and woes
I guess he's a happy young man. God in heaven only knows

Wino, soon you've got to choose
How long must you take abuse
Wino, you wasn't born to lose
Sweet wine is making you a fool

Yonder come a man, now this I know
Now you better find some place to go
Yonder come a man to take you downtown
He don't want you hanging aroundback to top
Comin' Home
(allen collins -- ronnie vanzant)

It's been so long since I've been gone
Another day might be too long for me
Traveling around I've had my fill
Of broken dreams and dirty deals
A concrete jungle surrounding me
Many nights I've slept out in the streets
I paid my dues and I changed my style
Seen hard times. all over now

I want to come home. it's been so long since I've been away
And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay

I miss old friends that I once had
Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
I don't know why the thought came to me
But why I'm here I really can't see. and now...

I want to come home. it's been so long since I've been away
And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay
Coming home to stay
Coming home to your love, mama
I've seen better days

I miss old friends that I once had
Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
I don't know why the thought came to me
But why I'm here I really can't see. and now...

I want to come home. it's been so long since I've been away
And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay
Coming home to stay
Coming home to your love, mama
I've seen better daysback to top
The Seasons
(rickey medlocke)

When the season is turning
And my day has gone by
And to see my reflection
See it in your eyes
Know the day that's come now has gone by

And if you look now quite closely
You feel the sun start to shine
And you know the day is longing
Longing just for you
The season that's come now is as fresh as you

And if you look now quite closely
You feel the sun start to shine
And you know the day is longing
Longing just for you
The season that's come now is as fresh as youback to top
Things Goin' On
Have you ever lived down in the ghetto?
Have you ever felt the cold wind blow?
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.back to top
