Fantastic demo by Skynyrd. Really funny when you hear that Allen Collins string gets broken. But the Skynyrd band continue playing as they will always do, and quite fast Allen can continue playing the solo with a new string.

Wow, it’s just fantastic, I really admire them all.

Here are the lyrics (enjoy!):

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me
For I must be traveling on now
‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see

But if I stayed here with you,GIRL
Things just couldn’t be the same
‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change

And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows I cant change

Bye bye, baby, it’s been a sweet love, yeah, yeah
Though this feeling I can’t change
But please don’t take it so badly
‘Cause Lord knows I’m to blame

But if I stay here with you, GIRL
Things just couldn’t be the same
Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you never change

And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows I can’t change
Lord help me I can’t change
Lord I can’t change,
Won’t you fly high, Free Bird, yeah

Its called jamming not stalling

Kerry Standifur says:

Why do you have the word ‘girl’ in all caps throughout the lyrics?

southerncomfort356 says:

thanks again.

@michaelloudin They were REALLY poor when they recorded this, and since
they didn’t have the signing fee yet, he probably couldn’t afford another
guitar. They could’ve re-recorded it, though…

Josh Power says:

love this. if it wasnt for the guitar string braking, i would love it more
than i love the album version. but the full version of both, that doesnt
just fade out, really adds alot

RiverDance2112 says:

This version is awesome, but difficult to find. The demo version I have
doesn’t have the piano intro. Wish I could find this one.

gazelle3311 says:

sean says:

Did they just keep repeating the same thing to stall?

Nathaniel Middleton says:

@MrWaddlesgee3 He fixed, what I have heard, the B-string on his own guitar.
