"Kiss Your Freedom Goodbye" as written by and Ed King Johnny Van Zant....
I don't read the paper, I don't watch the news
Life's good in this small town, population 62
Our bank ain't been held-up since 1932
Our doors are always unlocked
But not for long I'm tellin' you

[Chorus]
'cause I know time's are gonna change
I know life will never be the same
I see please tell me it ain't so
They're all movin' in surroundin' me
No place left to go
My oh my you can kiss your freedom goodbye

Used to have a small town drugstore
Where old men liked to meet
That store's gone out of business
They're sellin' drugs out in the streets
The new kids like to spray paint
They've got a lot to say
Sure do have a way with words
Taught me a few today

[Chorus 2]
'cause I know time's are gonna change
I know life will never be the same
I see small town folks like me
Are gonna have to change the way we do things cause eventually
My oh my you can kiss your freedom goodbye
Kiss it goodbye

[Chorus]

[Chorus 2]

    General CommentSounds like the bitching of an old man. "They" seems to sounds suspiciously like a code word for "blacks." Rather ironic that Skynyrd's original incarnation was made up of boys who stayed in trouble, smoked dope, had long hair and hung out with their black friends... in the Sixties South! My how the old are jealous of the young!
