This was the first song ever recorded on a Lynyrd Skynyrd album that did not feature Ronnie Van Zant on vocals. It was sung by guitarist Steve Gaines who was a singer, song writer, and guitarist prior to joining Lynyrd Skynyrd. The song is very much a Blues tune. (thanks, Aaron - Twin Cities, MN)
Steve Gaines wrote this song. He was first recommended to the band by his sister, Cassie Gaines, who was one of the original back-up singers added to the band. Cassie had originally been part of a group called The Honkettes, before they got absorbed into Lynyrd Skynyrd.
