Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Gary Rossington (from Classic Rock magazine): "That song has a lot of guitars that interlock with each other and play different parts; that's what we used to do. Allen would have a part, I would have a part and Ed King, or Steve Gaines, would have a part, and when we put them all together they would just have that sound. Ronnie would put lyrics to it and his voice would make the song. We started doing that again with this album. We decided to do that once again, instead of all of us just playing the same thing, over and over."
