Steve Gaines wrote this song on his own. He was first recommended to the band by his sister, Cassie Gaines, who was one of the original backup singers added to the band. Cassie had originally been part of a group called The Honkettes, before they got absorbed into Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Gaines made huge contributions to Street Survivors
, his first Lynyrd Skynyrd album, and sadly, his last. Three days after it was released, he, Van Zant and Cassie all died in a plane crash
. Gaines other writing credits on the album are:
"You Got That Right
," which he co-wrote with Van Zant. He and Ronnie shared lead vocals on that one.
"I Never Dreamed
" - another song he wrote with Van Zant.
"I Know A Little
" - a song he wrote on his own that was never released as a single, but became one of the group's best-known songs.
