"You Got That Right" as written by Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines....
Well I've heard lots of people say
They're gonna settle down
You don't see their faces
And they don't come around
Well I'm not that way
I got to move along

I like to drink and to dance all night
Comes to a fix not afraid to fight
You got that right
Said, you got that right
Sure got that right

Seems so long I been out on my own
Travel light and I'm always alone
Guess I was born with a travelin' bone
When my times up, I'll hold my own
You won't find me in an old folks home

You got that right
Said you got that right
Well, you got that right
Sure got that right

I tried everything in my life
Things I like I try 'em twice
You got that right
You sure got that right

Travelin' around the world, just singing my song
I got to go, Lord I can't stay long
Here comes that ol' travelin' jones once again

I like to drink and to dance all night
Comes to a fix not afraid to fight
You got that right
Said, you got that right
Well you got that right
Sure got that right

    General CommentThis is the most underrated Skynyrd song ever. Everyone else can have Freebird, I'll take this one.

    General CommentRonnie and Steve singing "you won't find me in an old folks home" served as dark foreshadowing.
