Gimme Three - Steps Allen Collins, Ronnie VanZant

    I was cutting the rug
    Down at a place called The Jug
    With a girl named Linda Lu
    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,
    Watcha tryin' to prove?
    'Cause that's my woman there
    And I'm a man who cares
    And this might be all for you."

    I was scared and fearing for my life.
    I was shakin' like a leaf on a tree.
    'Cause he was lean and mean,
    Big and bad, Lord,
    Pointin' 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'd let me
    Ask one favor from you."

    "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 me no more."


    Well the crowd cleared away
    And I began to pray
    And the water fell on the floor.
    And I'm telling you son,
    Well, it ain't no fun
    To be lookin' at a forty-four.
    Well he turned and screamed at Linda Lu
    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.
