Lynyrd Skynyrd - Whiskey Rock n' Roller - Live 1976

Updated: Jan 11




One of those truly iconic performances that hot August afternoon in 1976 at England's Knebworth Festival. About a year before the plane crash that would kill Ronnie Van Zant, Cassie and Steve Gaines, here's the full band with the Honkettes - Jo Jo Billingsley, Cassie Gaines and Leslie Hawkins doing what they always did...rockin' the joint.




Lyrics


I'm headed down a highway, got my suitcase by my side

Blue skies hanging over my head, I got 500 miles to ride

I'm going down to Memphis town, to play a late night show

I hope the people are ready there, 'cause the boys are all ready to go


Well, I'm a whiskey rock a' roller

That's what I am

Women, whiskey, and miles of traveling

Is all I understand


I was born a travellin' man and my feets do burn the ground

I don't care for fancy music, if your shoes can't shuffle around

I got a hundred women or more and there's no place I call home

The only time I'm satisfied, is when I'm on the road


Well, I'm a whiskey rock a' roller

That's what I am

Women, whiskey, and miles of traveling

Is all I understand

Sometimes I wonder, where we go


Lord don't you take my whiskey; and rock n roll

Take me down to Memphis town, busdriver get me there

I got me a queenie, she got long, brown, curly hair

She likes to drink Old Grandad and her shoes do shuffle around

And everytime I see that gal

Lord she wants to take me down


Well, I'm a whiskey rock a' roller

That's what I am

Women, whiskey, and miles of traveling

Is all I understand

Sometimes I wonder, where will we go

Lord don't you take my whiskey; and rock n roll
