Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced /ˌlɛnərd ˈskɪnərd/ LEN-ərd-SKIN-ərd) is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern hard rock genre during the 1970s. Originally formed in 1964 as the "Noble Five" in Jacksonville, Florida, the band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its driving live performances and signature tunes "Sweet Home Alabama," and "Free Bird." At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band's most popular incarnation. more »

"Well when I was a young-un they used to teach me to play music like this here..." 

When I look in your face baby 
When I look in your eyes 
I can tell pretty mama I been wastin' time 
'Cause you don't really love me 
You just love me for what I am 
But you best treat me right, woman 
Gonna lose your money man 

Well when I first met you baby, you was a red light girl 
But I tried to take you to better world 
But you would not listen 
Still you think I am a fool 
Well you had it made in the shade, baby 
Don't let that tree fall down on you 

Well I work the railroad each and every day 
Well I work real hard tryin' to make my pay 
Lord I never tell you what you supposed to say 
Girl you had it made in the shade 
Don't let that tree fall down on you
