Lynyrd Skynyrd - 'Gimme Three Steps' (from 'Live In Atlantic City')

[Verse 1] 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?
'Cause that's my woman there and I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you"
I said, "Excuse me"

[Verse 2]
I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
'Cause he was lean, and mean, and
Big and bad, Lord, a-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"

[Chorus]
"Oh 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"

[Verse 3]
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 there 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

[Chorus]
"Oh 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"


Lynyrd Skynyrd
Απολαύστε ένα από τα εμβληματικότερα τραγούδια στο ευρύτερο φάσμα της rock μουσικής, το "Gimme Three Steps" των Lynyrd Skynyrd σε "ζωντανή" εκτέλεση. Το βίντεο το βλέπουμε - ακούμε στον "ζωντανά" ηχογραφημένο δίσκο "Live In Atlantic City" που κυκλοφόρησε προ τετραετίας.

Το "Gimme Three Steps" το πρωτοσυναντήσαμε στο ομώνυμο [με τον υπότιτλο (Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd)] ντεμπούτο της μπάντας του 1973 (το τρίτο τραγούδι της πρώτης πλευράς του βινυλίου). Μουσική - στίχοι: Allen Collins και Ronnie Van Zant.
