"I Know A Little" as written by and Steve Gaines....
Yes sir

Well the bigger the city, well the brighter the lights
The bigger the dog, well the harder the bite
I don't know where you been last night
But I think mama, you ain't doin' right

Say I know a little
I know a little about it
I know a little
I know a little 'bout it
I know a little 'bout love
And baby I can guess the rest

Well now I don't read that daily news
'Cause it ain't hard to figure
Where people get the blues
They can't dig what they can't use
If they stick to themselves
They'd be much less abused

Say I know a little
Lord I do know a little about it
I know a little
I know a little 'bout it
I know a little 'bout love
Baby I can guess the rest
Play me a little, oh yeah
Yeah

Well if you want me to be your only man
Said listen up mama, teach you all I can
Do right baby, by your man
Don't worry mama, teach you all I can

Say I know a little
Lord I do know a little about it
I know a little
I know a little 'bout it
I know a little 'bout love
Baby I can guess the rest
Well I know a little 'bout love
Baby I want your best

    General Commentmy grandfather used to listen to this song on his record player, and had the 45 of it. Everytime the song ended he always said, "I wish this was their best song, but I guess it will never be".

    My OpinionLynyrd Skynyrd were the founding fathers of Southern Rock, who combined the open mindedness of the hippies common in that era with a new identity for Southern men that embraced the pride they felt as unapologetic southerners brought new meaning to the symbols of the old south. In classic Skynyrd style I know a little is a walk through of core social statements repeated throughout their works from beginning to end...

    1. Disdain for big city, smooth talkin' rich boys
    2. Turning moral or ethical dilemmas into life sized bites of southern wisdom
    3. A celebration of southern savvy style despite otherwise obvious outward appearances that are so oftentimes misread by "big city slickers"

    I know a little contains all of these elements, making it "classic Skynyrd" in my humble opinion.
