Lynyrd Skynyrd - Gimme Three Steps


Gimme Three Steps

I was cutting the rug1
Down at a place called The Jug
With a girl named Linda Lou
When in walked a man
With a gun in his hand
And he was looking for you know who
He said, "Hey there fellow
With the hair colored yellow
What you trying to prove?
Because that's my woman there
And I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you"
I said, "Excuse me."
I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
'Cause he was lean, mean
Big and bad, Lord,
Pointing that gun at me
I said, "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 favor from you:
Oh won't you give me three steps
Gimme three steps mister
Gimme three steps towards the door?
Gimme three steps
Gimme three steps mister
And you'll never see-a me no more
For sure!"
Well the crowd cleared away,
And I began to pray,
As the water fell on the floor,
And I'm telling you son
Well, it ain't no fun
Staring straight down a forty-four.
Well he turned and screamed at Linda Lou
And that's the break I was looking for
And you could hear me screaming a mile away
As I was headed out towards the door.
