Song Title: Gimme 3 Steps
"Gimme 3 Steps" as recorded by
Lynyrd Skynyrd

I was cutting a rug down at a place called the jug
With a girl named Linda Lou
When in walked a man with a gun in his hand Looking at you-know-who
He said Hey there fellow With the hair colored yellow
What you tryin' to prove
O Say That's my woman there and I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you
I said Excuse me I ain't gonna fight him over this girl

I was scared and fearing for my life Shakin' like a leaf on a tree
Cause he was lean and mean and big and bad A-pointin' that gun at me
Oh Wait a minute mister I didn't even kiss her
Don't want no trouble with you
And I know you don't owe me But I wish you'd let me Ask one facor from you

CHORUS:
Won't you gimme 3 steps Gimme 3 steps mister
Gimme 3 steps towards the door
Gimme 3 steps Gimme 3 steps mister
You'll never see me no more That's for sure

SOLO

Well the crowd drew away and I began to pray And water fell on the floor
And I'm a-tellin' you son It ain't no fun Starin' straight down a .44
Well he turned and screamed at Linda Lou It's the break I was lookin' for
You could hear me screamin' from a mile away "I was headed for the door"

CHORUS:
