Radio 80, side A, track 8: “Gimme Three Steps” by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Lynyrd SkynyrdOh, Lynyrd Skynyrd, I’m not really familiar with this one and I’m not sure if I’d heard it before I recorded it off of BOB.  Probably maybe?  Anyway, I’ve heard it a few times since then, but this is the first time I actually paid attention to it other than just thinking it was a great song.  Well, now I think it’s a fantastic song because it’s basically a celebration of cowardice.  I’m not saying cowardice is something that’s necessarily something to be celebrated, Lynyrd Skynyrd, but I appreciate that you’re being straight with us.  A gun gets pointed at you, you run.  And then you write an awesome song about it.  I respect that, Lynyrd Skynyrd.  You can have your three steps, and feel free take a few more if you need ’em.
