Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Gimme Three Steps" (Live At Knebworth '76)

Ο δίσκος των Lynyrd Skynyrd "Live At Knebworth '76"
I was cutting the rug
Down at a place called The Jug
With a girl named Linda Lou
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
What you trying to prove?
Because that's my woman there
And I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you"
I said "Excuse!"

I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
‘Cause he was lean, mean
Big and bad, Lord
Pointing that gun at me
“Oh 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 would let me
Ask one favor from you"

"A-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-a me no more
For sure"

Well the crowd cleared away
And I began to pray
And 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 Lou
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

"A-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-a me no more
Show me the back door"

Ο Ronnie Van Zant διασκέδαζε σε ένα μπαρ μηχανόβιων στο Τζάκσονβιλ (Jacksonville). Εκεί που χόρευε με κάποια γυναίκα αισθάνθηκε μία κάνη όπλου να τον σημαδεύει. Ήταν ο σύζυγος (της γυναίκας με την οποία χόρευε).

Στον γυρισμό για το σπίτι του ο Ronnie είχε ήδη φτιάξει τους σχετικούς στίχους και κάπως έτσι προέκυψε το τραγούδι των Lynyrd Skynyrd "Gimme Three Steps", το οποίο πρωτακούσαμε στο ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο των Αμερικανών southern rockers που κυκλοφόρησε το 1973. Το "Gimme Three Steps" αποτελεί μέρος και του live album "Live At Knebworth '76" που κυκλοφόρησε τον περασμένο Φεβρουάριο...

  1. Έτσι να μαθαίνουν οι νεότερες γενιές μπαλίτσα από τους μάστορες του είδους.

    1. Και να θυμούνται οι παλαιότεροι επίσης, εξίσου σημαντικό...
