Gimme Three Steps


by Lynyrd Skynyrd
I was cuttin the rug down at a place called the Jug
With a girl named Linda Lou
When in walked a man with a gun in his hand
He was looking for you know who 
He said “Hey there fellow with the hair coloured yellow
Watcha tryin' to prove?
Cuz' that’s a my woman there and I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you”.  I said “excuse me!”
              
D - - - /     / A - - - /     / D - - - /     / E - - - / A - - - /
D - - - /     / G - - - / E - - - / D - - - /     / A - - - / D - - - //

I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
Cuz' he was lean and mean and big and bad, Lord,
Pointing that gun at me
I said “wait a minute mister, I didn't even kiss her,
Don't want no trouble with you
And I know you don't owe me but
I wish you would let me ask one favor from you”
              
 C:	Won't you gimme three steps, gimme three steps mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps mister
And you'll never see me no more - for sure

D - - - /    / A - - - /    / D - - - /    / A - - - / D - - - //

Well the crowd cleared away and I began to pray
And the water fell down to the floor
And I'm telling you son, it ain't no fun 
Staring straight down a forty﷓four 
Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou 
And that's the break I was looking for
And you could hear me screaming a mile away
As I was headed out toward the door 
              
 C:	Won't you gimme three steps, gimme three steps mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps mister
And you'll never see me no more
