Lynyrd Skynyrd Michelle

Michelle, little girl I need you baby

More than the air I breathe

My love for you grows stronger babe

My words you must believe

Well I need to see you laugh again

And I want to see you smile

Michelle, little girl I love you baby

You’re my only child

Michelle, little girl the pain for you

Is hurting me inside

At night I think of you sometimes

I lean my head and cry

I need to see you laugh again

And I wanna see you smile

Michelle, little girl I love you baby

You’re my only child

Michelle, little girl I need you baby

More than the air I breathe

My love for you grows stronger babe

My words you must believe

I need to see you laugh again

And I wanna see you smile

Michelle, little girl I love you baby

You’re my only child

Michelle, little girl I need you baby

More than the air I breathe

My love for you grows stronger babe

Lynyrd Skynyrd Smokestack Lightning

I was sittin’ at home all alone when I heard that telephone ring

And there on the line was a friend of mine sayin’ he wasn’t doin’ a thing

So I’m steppin’ out on the town tonight to party where the drinks are free

There’s a sweet young thing ready and waitin’ on me

[chorus]

Young and fine, strike you blind

Smokestack lightnin’ make you lose your mind

She’s got looks that kill can fire at will

Smokestack lightnin’ she’s all I need

When we got to the place I got me a taste

I knew she’d be good for a game

Dancin’ out on the floor she was ready for more

She knew all the boys by their names

I said hey sweet thing let me pull your string

Let me take you home

I woke up in a hour with my money and my memory gone.

[repeat chorus]

Young and fine strike you blind smokestack lightnin’

[repeat chorus]

Lynyrd Skynyrd Best Things In Life

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 be

[repeat chorus]

Lynyrd Skynyrd Run Run Rudolph

Out of all the reindeer you know you’re the mastermind

Run, run rudolph, randalph’s not too far behind

Run, run rudolph, santa’s got to make it to town

Randalph he can hurry, he can take the freeway down.

And away went rudolph a-whizzing like a merry-go-round

Said santa to a boy child what have you been longing for?

All I want for christmas is a rock and roll electric guitar

And away went rudolph a-whizzing like a shooting star

Run, run rudolph, santa’s got to make it to town

Can’t you make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down

And away went rudolph a-whizzing like a merry-go-round

Said santa to a girl child what would you like most to get?

I want a little baby doll that can cry, scream and wet

And away went rudolph a-whizzing like a saber jet

Run, run rudolph, run, run rudolph, a-running like a son-of-a-gun

Lynyrd Skynyrd Still Unbroken

Broken bones, broken hearts

Stripped down and torn apart

A little bit of rust – I’m still runnin’

Countin’ miles, countin’ tears

Twisted roads, shiftin’ gears

Year after year – it’s all or nothin’

But I’m not home, I’m not lost

Still holdin’ on to what I got

Ain’t much left

No there’s so much that’s been stolen

I guess I’ve lost everything I’ve had

But I’m not dead, at least not yet

Still alone, still alive, Still UNBROKEN

I’m still alone, still alive,

I’M STILL UNBROKEN

Never captured, never tamed

Wild horses on the plains

You can call me lost – I call it FREEDOM

I feel the spirit in my soul

It’s something Lord I can’t control

I’M NEVER GIVIN UP WHILE I’M STILL BREATHIN!

I’m not home, I’m not lost

Still holdin’ on to what I got

Ain’t much left

Lord there’s so much that’s been stolen

I guess I’ve lost everything I’ve had

I’m not dead, at least not yet

Still alone, still alive, Still UNBROKEN

I’m still alone, still alive,

STILL UNBROKEN

I’m still unbroken

Still Unbroken

Like the wind, like the rain

It’s all runnin through my veins

Like a river pouring down into the ocean

I’m out here on the streets

But I’m standing on my feet

Still alive, still alone, still unbroken

I’m not home, I’m not lost

Still holdin’ on to what I got

Ain’t much left

Lord there’s so much that’s been STOLEN

Guess I’ve lost everything I’ve had

But I’m not dead, at least not yet

Still alive, still alone, Still Unbroken

I’m still alone, still alive,

I’M STILL UNBROKEN

I’M STILL ALONE!

STILL ALIVE!

STILL UNBROKEN!

I’M STILL UNBROKEN!

I ain’t never going down!

I’M STILL UNBROKEN!

Oooooooh-Ooooooh!

Lynyrd Skynyrd Mississippi Kid

Tri-cities here I come.

Well, I’m going to fetch my woman, people

Tri-cities here I come

And I know she’s gonna give me some.

When the kid hits Alabama, people

‘Cause down in Alabama

Lynyrd Skynyrd Lucky Man

MMMMMmmmmMMMMMmmm….

Well it took so long for me to realize

That my destiny was right before my eyes

If it were up to me to travel through this life

I’d find an open space for me to live out all my dreams

I’m such a lucky man, I try to be a stronger man

I shed a tear or two but that don’t make me a weaker man

It’s made me a better man, I’ve given all I can

To a world that sometimes thinks that I’m a lesser man

I remember all the things I’ve been through

Gave myself to all those people I once knew

I’m such a lucky man

I’d like to thank you for the times that you have been with me

I hope it meant as much to you to share these memories

There’s a guiding light that always seems to shine on me

If I did it again I’d be happy ’til the end

I’m a lucky man, I try to be a stronger man

I shed a tear or two but that don’t make me a weaker man

It’s made me a better man, I’ve given all I can

To a world that sometimes thinks that I’m a lesser man

I remember all the things I’ve been through

Gave myself to all those people I once knew

I’m such a lucky man

It’s right here in the moonlight…

Whooooooooohhhoooooohhhh

I’m a lucky man, I try to be a stronger man

I shed a tear or two but that don’t make me a weaker man

It’s made me a better man, I’ve given all I can

To a world that sometimes thinks that I’m a lesser man

I’m a lucky man

Yeah

MMMMMmmmmMMMMMmmm…. I’m a lucky man

Whooooooooohhhoooooohhhh…. just a lucky man

Lynyrd Skynyrd 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.

Lynyrd Skynyrd Every Mother’s Son

Well I’ve been ridin’ a winning horse for a long, long time

Sometimes I wonder is this the end of the line

No one should take advantage of who they are

No man has got it made

If he thinks he does, he’s wrong

[chorus]

Every mother’s son better hear what I say

Every mother’s son will rise and fall someday

I’ve seen it happen so many times, so many times before

Some man got so much money he doesn’t worry no more

Or he’s got such a pretty woman that’ll treat him fine

Well my friend has been a fool

It happens everytime

[chorus]

I’m not tryin’ to preach to no one, to no one at all

I’ve seen so many of my good friends just rise to fall

‘Cause they got so much money or a woman so fine

Well my friends have all been fools, it happens every time

[chorus]

What I say

[chorus]

What I say

Oh, every mother’s son will rise and fall someday

Lynyrd Skynyrd Mr. Banker

Mister Banker

Mister please, how much does money mean

Won’t you reconsider mister

Won’t you do this thing for me

All I got, Lord, is my guitar

But you can have that mister banker

Won’t you bury my papa for me

Oh mister banker please

Listen to how that sound

But hey mister banker

Oh won’t you reconsider mister

Won’t you do this thing for me

Ain’t got no car

I got me a 1950 Les Paul guitar

Won’t you take it mister banker

Won’t you bury my papa for me

Oh mister banker please
