Good Lovin's Hard to Find
(gary rossington, johnnyvan-zant, ed king, robert white johnson)

Every woman's out there lookin' for a rich man
And every man's out there looking for a perfect ten
Can't always get what you want sometimes
So your better off just takin' what you can

Money won't make you happy baby
And a perfect woman son's gonna make you sad
If you think that's where it's at, then I'm telling you, your wrong
Cause you can have it all one day and then it's gone
You can search all of your life, and still not find
What you want, ain't what you've got

(chorus)

Good lovin' so hard to find
Could this be the right place, at the right time
Good lovin', feels so fine
I just can't get enough
Cause good lovin's hard to find,so hard to find

We all need good lovin'
Ain't talkin' about no one night stand
Some have the touch, and others just a hand
But when you find the right one then you'll understand

Can't always get what you want sometimes
So you're better off just takin' what you can
You can search all of your life, and still not find
What you want ain't what you've got

(chorus)

Good lovin' so hard to find
Could this be the right place at the right time
Good lovin' feels so fine
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
Some of that good good love
Some of that good good love
Some of that good, good love
Good lovin'
So hard to find
Good lovin'
Make you loose your mind
Good lovin'
Good good love
Good lovin'
Some of that lovin' babyback to top
One Thing
(gary rossington, johnnyvan-zant, ed king, dale krantz-rossington, custer)

I met the man, when I was fifteen
Seen him in all the papers, on t.v. and magazines
So I had to ask him, what's the difference between
Those who make a wish, those who spin wheels
And those who ride in white limosines like you,mister
Won't you tell me one thing

Some have the passion and they control the ride
Some settle for whatever happens
As years pass they see their lives just slip on by
The world keeps a' turnin'
It'll leave you behind
Nothin' else matters, nothin's worth learnin'
Until the dream you have inside

(chorus)
It's the one thing, the one thing there's no denyin'
So find yourself a dream and some piece of mind
'cause money and power won't buy it
It's the one thing, nothin' else matters

And somewhere you might have heard the good times are through
And good luck is somethin' you're born with
I know it just ain't true
The world keeps a' turnin'
I wouldn't tell you no lie
Nothin' else matters, nothin's worth learnin'
Until the dream that you have inside

(repeat chorus)

Nothin' else mattersback to top
Can't Take That Away
(johnny van zant, robert johnson, michael lunn)

What can they all be thinkin'
Wanna' take the cross off of the hill
Put away the pledge of allegience
Lord,just the thought gives me a chill
They can take God off our money but, in the end 'o ain't it funny
How were all gonna see him on the judgement day
So sing it loud

(chorus)
One more time
Hear what you say
When you got the truth inside, now they can't take that away
One more time
'cause it ain't too late
Hold on to what you believe 'cause thay can't take that
They can't take that away

They want to change somethin' somewhere for everybody
Right now a change ain't what we need
Just like my father's father before him
They held on with pride to everything they believed
They can take God off our money but, in the end 'o ain't it funny
How were all gonna see him on the judgement day

(repeat chorus)

There's a fire that burns forever
Come a day we ain't gonna take no more

(repeat chorus)back to top
Best Things in Life
(gary rossington, tom keifer, johnnyvan-zant)

I've got a sayin' in my life that's got me by so far
Well it mat not be right but, nobody's gonna tell me I'm wrong
The first mistake is leave it up to somebody else
If you want somethin' done you got to do it yourself
I'll do it myself before somebody makes a fool out of me

(chorus)
'cause nothin' comes easy for a man like me
Everybody thinks the best things in life are free
If they would open their eyes it'd be so plain to see
That the best things in life don't come so easily

I met a man who thought just a little bit different from me
He said you got it so easy but I just had to disagree
It would have been alright but he pushed me too far
If your lookin' for trouble step outside of this bar
If it comes down to fistin', mister that ain't nothin' new to me

(repeat chorus)

You'll find in this life if there's somethin' that you believe
You got to get your hands dirty when it's somethin' that you really need
If they ever give you somethin' too easily
Can't be too good, 'cause nothin' good's for free
Tell ya' straight from the heart a bed of roses it will never beback to top
The Last Rebel
(gary rossington, johnnyvan-zant, robert johnson, michael lunn)

There's a grey horse standin' still
As a soldier climbs in the saddle for one last ride
As the rain pours off his hat
You can see the shadows of the past written in his eyes

Now the cannons are silent
His friends are all gone
Gotta put it all behind him
If he ever wants to find his way home
He's the last rebel on the road

Just a boy with his old guitar
Keeps to himself but everybody takes him wrong
But he carries on
Got a dream that will never die
Can't change him, no use in stayin' where you don't belong

Now he's rollin' down the highway
Gone too far too fast
No one will ever find him, he'll never look back

(chorus)
'cause he's the last rebel
And he's all alone
He's the last rebel
His friends are all gone
He's the last rebel
The last rebel on the road

There'll never be another like him
He's the last of a dying breed
Ain't no use in tryin' to tame him
'cause he's the last rebel

(repeat chorus)back to top
Outta Hell in My Dodge
(randall hall, johnny van-zant, ed king, robert johnson)

Five a.m. in the mornin', whiskey still runnin' through my head
I could get out of bed and maybe I'll just have another cigarette
As long as I can remember seems all I've ever done is work
The boss is a jerk and I ain't payin' the rent
Spent my whole life shovelin' dirt

(chorus)
I'm gonna get outta hell in my dodge
Can't take this anymore
Gonna go downtown pick up my girl
There ain't nothin' worth waitin' for
Take the road less traveled
Spend my life behind the wheel
Gonna get outta hell in my dodge
Freedom made out of steel

There's a knock on the door from the sheriff
Askin' me where I was last night
Seems somebody lookin' a lot like me
Had takin' up with his wife
He said son if I ever catch him
There's gonna be some hell to pay
He'll be gone for good if I see him again
'cause I just might blow him away

(repeat chorus)

What's a poor man supposed to do
Stuck in the middle and trapped by the blues
Baby, I'm sick of these blues

(chorus)
I'm gonna get outta hell in my dodge
Can't take this anymore
Gonna go downtown pick up my girl
There ain't nothin' worth waitin' for
Well I don't care if I'm wrong or right
Gotta split this town tonight
Gonna get outta hell in my dodge
Live my life behind the wheel
I'm gonna get outta hell in my dodge
My freedom made out of steelback to top
Kiss Your Freedom Goodbye
(ed king, johnny van-zant)

I don't read the paper, I don't watch the news
Life's good in this small town, population 62
Our bank ain't been held-up since 1932
Our doors are always unlocked
But not for long I'm tellin' you

(chorus)
'cause I know time's are gonna change
I know life will never be the same
I see please tell me it ain't so
They're all movin' in surroundin' me
No place left to go
My oh my you can kiss your freedom goodbye


Used to have a small town drugstore
Where old men liked to meet
That store's gone out of business
They're sellin' drugs out in the streets
The new kids like to spray paint
They've got a lot to say
Sure do have a way with words
Taught me a few today

(chorus)
'cause I know time's are gonna change
I know life will never be the same
I see small town folks like me
Are gonna have to change the way we do things cause eventually
My oh my you can kiss your freedom goodbye
Kiss it goodbye

South of Heaven
(gary rossington, johnny van-zant, robert johnson, michael lunn)

There's a honky-tonk just south of georgia
A little salvation just a' waitin' for ya'
I heard it said a long time ago
If your lookin' for your soul
Down a dirt road just across the border

Well the harder it comes you know the easier it goes
If you can make your way a little further down that road, yea
When your caught up in between
Or just dyin' to be set free

(chorus)
South of heaven
Always endin' up
No matter how I try
I'm just south of heaven
Don't wanna' think you can have it all
'cause all I need is just south of heaven

There's a little girl they call the sweet thing
Been some time I'd like to tell you one thing
You have nothin' left to lose
So by the time that you come to
You'll be one more callin' her name

Well the harder it comes you know the easier it goes
If you can make your way a little further down that road, yea
When your caught up in between
Or just dyin' to be set free

(repeat chorus)

(repeat first verse)

(repeat chorus)

And when I die don't cry for me
'cause I'll be just south of heaven
South of heaven
All I want, all I need, all I want
Is south of heavenback to top
Love Don't Always Come Easy
(ed king, johnny van-zant)

Two young lovers meet and take each others hand
They say I do in the name of the lord
Livin' as one givin' all they can
Then the pressures come and a child is born
Young girl cradles the child in her arms
The man's home late and his day's too long
They're both unable to spend some time alone
That everybody needs to have
That's the thing that keeps love strong

(chorus)
Love don't always come easy
And sometimes love it can hurt
Words don't always come easy
It's worth a try we're gonna make it work
'cause love don't always come easy

Without warning many go a different way
And travel that road lookin' for someone
Their lives unravel a little more every day
This ain't no time to turn and run
It's a crime to throw it all away

(repeat chorus)back to top
Born to Run
(gary rossington, johnny van-zant, ed king, donnie van zant)

There's an old man sittin' on a front porch now
Talkin' 'bout how it used to be
When I was young I was a hell of a man
My father died when I was ten
I hit the road to find a job
Had to feed my family
Times were hard my hands are still scarred
From the life I've had to lead
I was born to run

Drove a tractor and trailer all my life
Six kids and a hell of a wife
Made lots of money it all slipped away
A large family that's the price you pay
I always dreamed never gave up
Son, even when times got tough
That's when I'd push it a little bit more
You should've heard that engine roar

(chorus)
I was born to run
Can't slow down
No regrets, I've been blessed
Born to run
In time you'll see what the good lord's done for me
Born to run
I can't slow down
No regrets, I did my best
Born to run
In time you'll see
What the good lord's done, done for me

The old man, he passed away
And all he said never crossed my mind
Until I saw the price he payed
Was a lot like mine
I'm full and though it's miles away
Gotta hit the city right on time
And when I'm on I'll always sing little song of mine
I was born to run

(repeat chorus)back to top
