Lynyrd Skynyrd - Gimme Three Steps Acoustic tab

This is how I play this song with only me and my acoustic guitar.
Since that is how I usually play, alone and acoustic, I would like
to present a tab that is easy and straightforward, and hopefully sounds
great, for others who generally play alone and acoustic.

D D O well the crowd cleared away and I began to pray A A and the water fell down to the floor D D and I'm telling you, son, it ain't no fun, E A staring straight down a fourty-four. D D Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou, G E and that's the break I was looking for D D and you could hear me screaming a mile away A D as I was headed out toward the door. REPEAT CHORUS.

That is pretty much it. Mess around with it and it should sound pretty close to the song. Remember this is a transcription for ONE guitar. it sounds great on acoustic or electric, but if on an acoustic you really have to bend those strings. JIFIGZ
