"Down South Jukin'" as written by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Robert Rossington....
Well Billy Joe told me, said everything's lookin' fine
He's got the place all secured, got the icebox full of wine
He said hurry on over and don't be late
He got three lovely ladies who just won't wait
Do some down south jukin'
And lookin' for a peace of mind

Now put your Sunday pants on, lets get out on on the road
We been workin' all week, and I'm thinkin' its time we let go
I got three fine mamas sittin all alone, gonna sip our wine and get it on
And do some down south jukin'
Lookin' for a peace of mind

Now come Monday morn we'll be headin' out to the field
And we'll be doin our thing for Papa and ol' Uncle Bill
Lord, but then come Friday night we'll be headin' to town
Tryin' to pick up any woman hanging around
And do some down south jukin'
Lookin' for a peace of mind

    Song FactInterestingly, the demo version has a lyrical difference that changes the story when compared to the studio version (THESE lyrics).

    Studio: "... three fine mamas..."
    Demo: "...three black mamas..."

    Sounds like management wanted Ronnie to "clean up" his delivery. IMHO, the demo version is better.
