Seven years of hard luck comin' down on me
From a motor boat, yes, up in Nashville, Tennessee
I worked in every joint you can name, yes, every honky tonk
They all come to see Yankee slicker saying, baby, you're what I want

    Saw Skynyrd play "Working for MCA" at a football stadium concert in 1975. One of my best concert memories. They were very dramatic with multiple guitar players coming on stage first playing that song... Skynyrd wasn't top bill but they stole the show

    Working for MCA and On the two fav LS do they remind me of the good old days. Bought an old Camero 30 years ago, had Pronounced LS album/cassette in the deck! What a bonus, Camero is long gone but I still have that cassette...somewhere.

    If you don`t believe in magic..never mind Copperfield or Angel...listen to the Legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd...
