2 Ramblin' Man - The Allman Brothers Band

I've been up and down this list and I just can't decide. I didn't vote Free Bird out of respect of someone who doesn't like it. But I really love all of them. It's too difficult to pick just one. - Britgirl

6 Green Grass and High Tides - Outlaws

An EPIC piece of southern rock greatness. Should be up there at the top with Free Bird.

Just listen to it! 10 minutes of sheet greatness! From the hallowing introduction to the dueling guitars of the double solo that dominate the second half, this song is a masterpiece from beginning to end! by the way, someone needs to put Pure Prairie League's "Amie" on this list. (I can't because I don't have an account.)

Yes, visitor. this song has actually more than 2 solos. plus the bass riff is also nice, the singing is also good. the lyrics has some meaning too. the song also changed its tempo. - zxm
