"On The Hunt" as written by Ronnie Van Zant and Allen Collins....
I said baby mama, I don't know your name
But I said baby, sugar I can play your game
Every night when we leave the hall
I see you hanging around
You want to ride in my big black car baby
Want to go uptown

[Chorus:]
I know who you are baby
I know what they call you girl
Never put you down baby
I'm just like you baby, I'm on the hunt

I know lady
People gonna talk about you and me
Let me say one thing mama, sugar I do as I please
And if you want to love me baby, I'm your man
And all those high-falutin' society people
I don't care if they don't understand

[Chorus]

My daddy told me a long time ago
Said there's two things son
Two things you should know
And in these two things you must take pride
That's a horse and woman, yeah
Well both of them you ride

    General CommentThis song rocks. It's about hooking up with a slut and not caring if other people don't like it.

    General CommentMan this song is great. The little things make this so good. Like when he hums with the guitar in one of the solos. Its only for a second or two, but its good stuff man.

    My OpinionGreat song, very mellow. I like when he says, "I'm a hunter!"
    I also like the hunter metaphor he uses for finding a female, it's very befitting of his intentions, barbaric.
