If someone were to tell you that you really aren’t that much different from your favorite rock band, how would react? Well, in Lynyrd Skynyrd’s song “We Ain’t Much Different”, they are pretty much saying that about all of us.
Okay, okay, so the song may actually be about a hard-working father and his son, but we can dream right?
When Johnny sings the chorus’ lyrics, “With these hands I’ve made my livin’/With these hands I’ve held a child/With these hands I’ve climbed a mountain/Sometimes we forget/We ain’t much different at all,” we truly believe he is singing to the fans because the majority of us can say we do or have done all of those things.
“We Ain’t Much Different” was included on Skynyrd’s 1997 album Twenty, which refers to how many years had passed since the tragic plane crash that killed Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines.
