If you don't know this song, you don't know the rock! - Teo2390
Best song I've listened to so far. Great music and great lyrics, and the solo at the end part is definitely one of the best ones I've ever heard. Then I read about everything that happened to the band members and it is so sad. They should've been around much longer
Cool Slide Guitar and very nice solo with two guitars at the end!
Deserves the top spot. This song defines rock and roll.V37 Comments
Best Song Ever, makes my Heart Melt, just listening to this song takes me to Alabama. This Should be in number one!
Good classical number... Would like to listen more from this band... Feel great when listen em all alone and sober
Lynyrd Skynyrd's best, must be number 1, Free Bird is great but Sweet Home Alabama takes the prize for me, seamless, fantasical and sublimely-composed are the list of three words which describe this song. Rock on L-S!
Sweet home Alabama I think is much better than Free bird. - FeirceravenV14 Comments
Simple Man. The song that non-superficial fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd think of when they think about the band. While "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" are good songs in and of themselves, "Simple Man" is in a league of its own. It says everything that needs to be said, and is a true pouring-out of the heart by Van Zandt. A classic.
My all-time favorite song. Nothing will ever top it in my mind.
An amazing song of wisdom and hope for any young man. This one stirs your soul. Great solo and bridge.
My favorite song ever since I was little can't remember a day I didn't hear it and love it - donovanthornV9 Comments
The only reason this song isn't number one is because nobody has listened to it. A lot of their "online" fan base ( I use that word carefully ) has stumbled across the first 3 songs ( Free Bird, Sweet Home Alabama & Simple Man ). They are great songs in their own perspective but this tune... Is the good stuff.
This song is beautifully performed, the guitar is very well played, and this song always reminds me of sitting in a car, going along the road while its raining. Once again, this song is amazing and am surprised that this song is not number one.
This is my favorite song of all time. It displays the hardship of loss in such a beautiful way. Ronnie sings mournfully, but still with anticipation of the future. Their best song by far...
Al all their songs are great, hard to pick my favoriteV7 Comments
Ahh... Great song, the first billion times I heard it... But, you can't tell me there aren't at least a dozen greater Skynyrd songs than this... If I never heard "3 Steps" again, I'll be happy.V1 Comment
The culmination of all the unique qualities that made Skynyrd special: The prominent punch of Leon's bass with AP's rolling drums, the genuineness of Ronnie's lyrics, the unbelievable guitar work throughout and the girls singing for emphasis in the background make this song their greatest. The definitive Skynyrd song that NO ONE would even consider attempting to cover, much like Saturday Night Special.
May not be their best, but it is certainly my favorite. I also love Saturday Night Special. - AlteredStateV2 Comments
Greatest song in the world, should be number 1V1 Comment
This song is the best
Blown away chills the first time I heard this... And probably the same every time afterwards. Amazing underrated guitar work and singing. One of the best.
So difficult to choose as so many. This is distinctive Skynyrd - not just song as Ronnie so well backed up by the Honkettes, but instrumentally as well. I love Freebird and SHA but about time those yet to get fully into Skynyrd enjoyed the wider catalogue.
I love this song. it's a great ballad. - jwileson
That keyboard solo... WOW Billy Powell rocks
Way better than that Sweet Home Alabama cheese.
The most underrated song in historyV2 Comments

Man listen to this one from their album god guns!
This is absolutely their best and its the most amazing lyrics ever by lynyrd skynyrd!
I'm sure you guys will vote after listening to this one!
Just hear it once!
I love that song. This song makes me something lonely. When I listen to that music, I miss someone. I don't know who is appeared in my mind, boy or girl? I think it may be a girl. I sometimes cry when I listen to that music.V1 Comment
That beginning growl is too cool
So underplayed.. This is like the anthem of any down to earth partier
As usual another Skynyrd hit! Great Rock and Roll!
This stuff they are turning out today is CRAP!
I've tried listening to it but there's nothing there! NO BEAT, NO LYRICS,
NO ROCK & ROLL,
This is the classic that resonates with me most next to Freebird of course. - theforgiventeen
