"One More Time" as written by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Robert Rossington....
How can you stand there smilin'
After all you've done
You know it seems to make you happy
When you've hurt someone
Twice before you fooled me
With your deceivin' and lyin'
Come in and close the door
One more time, one more time

Yeah you've been gone so long
No one knows where
And you say that you still love me
Then show me you care
'Cause you got what it takes sweet mama
To make a man feel fine
So I'll take the word of a liar
One more time, one more time

Girl you've got me hungry
Losin' my mind
I know I'm playin' with fire
Get burned every time
Yes I'm a fool for you baby I can't deny
But I got to have your sweet love
One more time, one more time

Girl you've got me hungry
Losin' my mind
I know I'm playin' with fire
I get burned every time
Yes I'm a fool for you mama I can't deny
But I got to have your sweet love
One more time, one more time

Yes I'm her fool once more
I can read her brown eyes
But when the rooster crows tomorrow
Well its her turn to cry
I'm headed down that old road
She lost her free ride
So tonight I'll take what I paid for
One more time, one more time
One more time

    General CommentMost definitely a song that hits you right in the heart. A very good tune by the greatest band ever.

    General CommentMost of the song is about him repeatedly going back to a woman who hurts him because he cannot resist her. However it changes in the last verse where its "her turn to cry" when he decides he's finally going to leave.

    General CommentSkynyrd is without a doubt one of my top 3 favorite bands of all time. One more time is one of my favorite Skynyrd songs. It refers to a woman that has done him wrong so many times, but he was allways willing to forgive her just to have her back knowing it will happen again.But enough was enough, he took her back one last time and walked out on her for good.

    General CommentI agree this is one of my top Skynyrd tunes as well and it deserves more recognition.

    General CommentThis song is about a man whose woman has done him wrong but what is meant by "one more time" shows up in the line "so tonight I'll take what I paid for, one more time." He's gonna poke her, like it or not. Some women enjoy pushing men's buttons but sometimes they can push to far.
