"I Need You" as written by Gary Robert Rossington, Edward C. King and Ronnie Van Zant....
Ain't no need to worry
There ain't no use to cry
'Cause I'll be comin' home soon
To keep you satisfied
You know I get so lonely
That I feel I can't go on
And it feels so good inside, babe
Just to call you on the telephone, I said

Ooh baby, I love you
What more can I say?
Ooh baby, I need you
I miss you more every day

I woke up early this mornin'
And the sun came shining down
And it found me wishin' and hopin'
Mama you could be around
For you know I need you
More than the air I breathe
And I guess I'm just tryin' to tell you, woman
Oh, what you mean to me, yeah yeah

Ooh baby, I love you
What more can I say?
Ooh baby, I need you
I miss you more every day

I'm tryin' to tell you I love you
In each and every way
I'm tryin' to tell you I need you
Much more than a piece of lay

Ooh baby, I love you
What more can I say?
Ooh baby, I need you
I miss you more every day

Ooh baby I love you
What more can I say
Oh baby I need your sweet lovin'
I miss you more, more every day

Oh baby I love you
Baby, bay I need you

    General CommentI think the title describes it pretty well, but i think it's about he wants his woman back after he left her. Lots of songs are like this.

    My Opinion OVER LOOKED AND ALWAYS UNDER RATED. ANOTHER SONG THAT IS A TRUE PIECE OF ART.

    General CommentDefinitely one of their best if not their best songs. Great guitar work and another long one. I'm going to guess it's about being out on the road touring and him telling his woman he misses her and reassuring her she's the only one. Letting her know she's not just a lay but the one that keeps him going.
