Lynyrd Skynyrd - Whiskey Rock A Roller Lyrics




I'm headed down a highway got a suitcase by my side
Blue skies hangin' over my head I got 500 miles to ride
I'm goin' down to Memphis town to play a latenight show
I hope the people are ready there 'cause the boys are all ready to go

[Chorus]
Well, I'm a whiskey rock-a-roller
That's what I am
Women, whiskey and miles of travellin'
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 100 women or more and there's no place I call home
The only time I'm satisfied is when I'm on the road

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wonder where will we go

Lord don't take my whiskey, rock and roll
Take me down to Memphis town, busdriver get me there
I got me a queenie she got longbrown 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

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wonder where will we go
Lord don't take my whiskey, rock and roll

    Tommy Pauly

  58. Owen Quinn

  59. Larrymh07

    I hope Ronnie kicks everyone's ass in the next lifetime if there is one. They're a bunch of bitches fighting so much.

  60. Blacques Jacques

    Looking at those pitures of happier days its hard to see them bitter and petty like they are now . All good things......

  70. John G

    Shame on you for not having a photo of Ed King in this version.

    Tony511utu

    Especially since he was one of the co writers of this song.

    Patty Diamond

    You can hear Ed King in this song cant you

  71. Brian Stears

    great song

  72. Hayley Dilbeck

    i am 8 and i love it

  73. Toby Cavanaugh

    Awesome music!
    Why aren't there any quadroons or blacks in Southern Rock?
    Is there still much racism or racial seperatism in Dixie?

    AL WAG

    Toby Cavanaugh sounds like you are the racist

    Tartuffe the Spry Wonder Dog

    Umm, are you really this dumb, or just trolling? Judging by your use of the word 'quadroons', I'd expect the latter. Two of the biggest southern rock bands off all time, Allman Brothers and Doobie Brothers, both had black members.

  74. Denis M. Lacroix

    Piano & Guitars accompany one another so finnnne in" Skynyrd's " tunes  !

  75. Dr. Awkward

    Did you know? Ed King & Steve Gaines were born on the same day.

    jerry flounders

    Ed King was So under rated, and helped Create this Sound in a Mighty way.

  76. Bear Po

    love it

  77. Elden Duncan

    ""RIGHT-FUCK'N'-ON"-MY-BROTHER!!!!!!! I-LIKE-YA-STYLE!!!!!!! """1ROWDY"""!!!!!!! ~E~!!!!!!!

  78. Terry Lunsford

    Ronnie did often wonder where they would go, and as he got closer to his 30th birthday, which he told those close to him that he would never see, he wrote so much more about "the rot gut" life he was living.. They all were party till you puke and he knew everything would change and that "when it's your time to go"... People asked him who are you, what are you? His answer was this song's title but, he was so much more than that to so many people who still listen to his music even today. He was one of the best singer-songwriters ever and will always be the voice of Lynyrd Skynyrd. RIP Free Birds Forever! RebTL 2016

    Tuckdaman11

    Ronnie is absolutely one of the best song writers ever.. does not get the credit deserved. Rolling stone didn't even have him on their top 100 writers of all time list. Sad... it's because he is from the south.

    R Walder

    Simple Man is among the top five greatest songs ever recorded, ever. Of any genre.

    Carl Smith

    When ya know ya know

    Dena Grippo

    He also wrote, All I can do is write about it, which speaks to what he knew.

    Beatle Forever

    Amen brother well spoken

  79. Roy Key

    THE REAL DEAL

  80. L. Joseph

    Ed 👑

  81. Eric Hall

    "we blew the Stones off the stage" - Leon Wilkeson.Bass player extraordinaire.

    james crowe

    Thumper

    Mike Perkins

    AND they sure did ! So did George Thorogood and the Delaware destroyers

    David

    Something what every American says. But I could agree with you folks. ACDC blew the shit out of the Who once.

    Beatle Forever

    Heck yeah you did

  82. John Caudell

    I prefer Ronnie, and he could write like no other. We need new Southern Rockers.

    Joshua Shafer

    Miss ya Ronnie

    Patty Diamond

    That we do. But I don't think it will ever happen

    Sterling Price

    RVZ Is singing this song buddy.

    Monkey Funky

    Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, amongst other not necessarily the same but on the right track

    Beatle Forever

    What do you mean you prefer Ronnie ?

  83. latem live

    this Song is Fucking Epic.

  84. Davids garand

    "Lord don't ya take my...." Rock on ,Gary and Ed

  85. michael monroe

    I had tickets too that fucking concert....

  86. TheLAKERSareGodsTeam

    Song kinda sucks. It doesn't completely suck, but it sucks to some degree.

    Rodney Blevins

    Lay off the crack pipe

    john knapp

    You kinda suck too.

    james crowe

  87. ellen vickers

    Lynyrd Skynyrd will always be music that our children, children's will be listening mine grandkids already love them.

    Mike Perkins

    Hell yeah!

    Rudolph The Wild Norseman !

    Mike Perkins

    Hell yeah !

    Jon Doe

    Me and my girlfriend used to make our baby jump around in her belly by playing simple man, any time we got scared about not feeling her move much we’d play that song for her and she’d start jumping around! They can start lovin’ skynyrd before they’re even born!! Cheers!
