One of Lynyrd Skynyrd's deeper songs, this is about finding the right woman and losing her. In the first verse, Ronnie Van Zant sings that his father told him to be strong, not to cry and to love and move on quick. He can't do it because he has found the right woman, but she is gone. Now he is down and is begging for her to some back... something he never dreamed he would do. (thanks, Mike - Poland, NY)
