lynyrd skynyrd

-3 original members died in plane crash

-"free bird"

I saw cotton and I saw black.
Tall white mansions and little shacks.
Southern man when will you pay them back?
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking.
How long? How long?
-Lynyrd Skynyrd perceived as a racist band

-Confederate flag as back drop

-"Thanks for the opinion Neil, now leave us alone"

-historical context:
-"Montgomery got the answer" - march from Selma to Montgomery led by MLK

I hear some people been talkin' me down,
Bring up my name, pass it 'round.
They don't mention happy times
They do their thing, I'll do mine.
Neil's retaliation - "Walk On"
"happy ending"
