For decades when a band has asked their audience the question “What song is it you want to hear?” The answer for many has been “Freebird”. We feel the same way. We want to hear “Freebird” right now. So, we are sharing this great live rendition recorded in 1977 at the Oakland Colosseum. Enjoy!

Guitar chords to Lynyrd Skynyrd Freebird.

Freebird – Lynyrd Skynyrd

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now
‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see
But, if I stayed here with you, girl
Things just couldn’t be the same
‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can’t change

Bye, bye, baby it’s been a sweet love
Though this feeling I can’t change
But please don’t take it so badly
‘Cause Lord knows I’m to blame
But, if I stayed here with you girl
Things just couldn’t be the same
‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
And the bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can’t change
Lord help me, I can’t change

Lord I can’t change
Won’t you fly, free bird, yeah
