matt.casilla s 1 I suppose the following genre seems to identify with Lynryd on some kinda plane or bird. Dont get me wrong, I ve appreciated Lynyrd for years completely blitzed on blended whiskey as intended, of course.

How come everyone thinks they can sing this song when it comes on .
Reminds me of my mom. These lyrics are just great.
For my boys Rudy N Alex.
Most meaningful lyrics from a great Southern rock band. All time great bit here...
A life lesson in a song.
Simple is sun on my face Air I breathe!!
Skynyrd rules. Shinedown is crap. This is the best.
In a time when simple was it. Rock on
Ice cold beer and simple man out in the sun... Now that's how you spend a summer day.
For my son Aj and my son Aedin. I have always and forever been in love with this band and their music. They speak truth. I will always love you both and want nothing but the best for you. Be simple and you will be free and happy. ♡ To Ronnie wife and all the band , thank you for carrying on.
A loving fan
