I was just a teenage boy on my way to school
Mama mad at me for me 'cause I turned on the news
Details still uncertain as I put on my shoes
Wasn't sure what happened but I knew I had the blues

Cause that's the day the freebird fell
Oh, I remember it well
So many cried when Ronnie died
He never said farewell
What he'd say in a southern song
Stories told still here long
The day the freebird fell

Pulled myself together and I went on my way
Missed the bus on purpose so I could walk that day
Tuesday's Gone and Simple Man Play on in my mind
Sweet Home Alabama, Curtis Loew and One More Time

'Cause that's the day the freebird fell
Oh, I remember it well
So many cried when Ronnie died
He never said farewell
What he'd say in a southern song
Stories told still here long
The day the freebird fell

Freebird fell
Freebird fell, mmmm

Many years have come and gone, a lot of things have changed
Father time has passed me by one thing stayed the same
When I'm feeling lonely, when I'm feeling blue
I crank up some of that good ol' honkey, Lord I think of you

Back to the day the freebird fell
Oh, I remember it well
So many cried when Ronnie died
He never said farewell
What he'd say in a southern song
Stories told still here long
The day the freebird fell

Freebird fell

Gimme three steps, you got that right
Oooo that smell
Simple man was comin' home
The day the freebird fell

I was just a teenage boy on my way to school
