"Every Mother's Son" as written by James Nicola Capaldi and Steve Winwood....
Well I've been ridin' a winning horse for a long, long time
Sometimes I wonder is this the end of the line
No one should take advantage of who they are
No man has got it made
If he thinks he does, he's wrong

Every mother's son better hear what I say
Every mother's son will rise and fall someday

I've seen it happen so many times, so many times before
Some man got so much money he doesn't worry no more
Or he's got such a pretty woman that'll treat him fine
Well my friend has been a fool
It happens every time


I'm not tryin' to preach to no one, to no one at all
I've seen so many of my good friends just rise to fall
'Cause they got so much money or a woman so fine
Well my friends have all been fools, it happens every time


What I say


What I say
Oh, every mother's son will rise and fall someday

    General CommentAs with most of skynyrds songs a simple but effective message. No matter how much you think you have in this world, you still have to give it up when you die. Its pretty much summed up in the last line of the chorus.
