Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones Spelled with all four y's Was born in 70-something Between "Sweet Home" and "You Got That Right" His mama met his daddy At a Tallahassee show But just like Tuesday Daddy wound up gone on down the road
Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones Hailed from Gadsden, Alabama Born to carry on Who his mama was a fan of Don't ask me no questions And I won't tell you no lies That's what she always told him Right up 'til the day she died
Lynyrd wasn't black or white He was somewhere in between Throw in, abandoned and confused And you get the blues when you're just thirteen Well he found his salvation In a pawn shop bought guitar You can't teach that kind of pickin' It's got to come right from your heart
Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones Hailed from Gadsden, Alabama Called to carry on Who his mama was a fan of Don't ask me no questions And I won't tell you no lies That's what she always told him Right up 'till' the day she died, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
When Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones' Mama passed away A dressed in all black, black man Stood up in back to say Been thinking about your mama Since that Tallahassee show Yeah son, I am your daddy And my name is Curtis Lowe Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Tony Shrum from Chattanooga As a 60 year old man in the south I grew up on Skynyrd and when I listened to this song the first time I cursed and cried. I didn't have a clue as to what would happen as I listened in wrapt in this song, it all came together in the last few lines and it's very fitting the way it ended up. I don't think that my reaction will be out of the norm for folks of my generation. Thank each of you for the part you played in putting this together.
Tran Charlton Boler from Metro AtlantaLynyrd S. Jones is a very thought provoking song that could be a huge hit if promoted properly. The fact that my home town Gadsden, Alabama, is in the chorus only increases my interest. Eric Church is a true country singer and one of the best. I am hoping it goes to the top.
