Title: GIMME 3 STEPS (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
I was cuttin the 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
he was looking for you know who.
He said "Hey there fellow with the hair coloured yellow,
watcha tryin' to proove?
Cuz' thatsa' 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
shaking like a leaf on a tree
Cuz' he was lean and mean and big and bad, Lord,
pointing that gun at me
I said "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 would let me
ask one favour from you:
(CHORUS) Say won't you Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister,
gimme 3 steps toward the door?
Gimme 3 steps, gimme 3 steps mister
and you'll never see me no more."
O well the crowd cleared away and I began to pray
and the water fell down to the floor
and I'm telling you, son, it ain't no fun,
staring straight down a fourty-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 toward the door.
