In 1973, the world was introduced to the soon-to-be legendary southern rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The band released their debut album in November of that same year, and it was a huge success, driven by the famous tune, "Free Bird."
The album also featured the song, "Gimme Three Steps" which although it never charted, has been regarded as their first major hit.
Lynyrd Skynyrd's Ronnie Van Zant wrote the song from his real-life experience at a biker bar in Jacksonville, FL. called The Little Brown Jug. After stirring up trouble with a woman named "Linda Lu" and having a gun pulled on him, Van Zant begged for "three steps towards the door" to flee.
All the mayhem at The Jug inspired the 18-year-old to write the song on his way home. And we're glad he did!
The song was always a hit at Lynyrd Skynard shows, and in the remastered video below, the band gives their all in a performance of "Gimme Three Steps."
There is no doubt the band had just as much fun playing this song as fans did listening to it!
Check it out below, and we're sure it will blow you away.
