Gimme Three Steps  Lynyrd Skynyrd

This is how I play this song with only me and my acoustic guitar.
Since that is how I usually play, alone and acoustic, I would like
to present a tab that is easy and straightforward, and hopefully sounds
great, for others who generally play alone and acoustic.
GIMME THREE STEPS

I[D] was cuttin the rug down a[D]t a place called 'The Jug'
with a [A]girl named Linda [A]Lou
When [D]in walked a man with a [D]gun in his hand
he was [E]looking for you know [A]who.
He said "[D]Hey there fellow with the [D]hair coloured yellow,
[G] wat[F#/G]cha tryin' to p[E]roove?
Cuz' thatsa' m[D]y woman there and [D]I'm a man who cares
and this [A]might be all for [D]you" (I said "excuse me!")

O well th[D]e crowd cleared away [D]and I began to pray
and the [A]water fell down to the [A]floor
and I'm [D]telling you, son, it [D]ain't no fun,
staring [E]straight down a fourty-[A]four.
Well, he [D]turned and screamed at [D]Linda Lou,
and that's the [G]break I was looking [E]for
and you could [D]hear me screaming a [D]mile away
as I was [A]headed out toward the [D]door.
REPEAT CHORUS.

That is pretty much it. Mess around with it and it should sound pretty close to the
song. Remember this is a transcription for ONE guitar. it sounds great on acoustic or
electric, but if on an acoustic you really have to bend those strings.
