Donnie & Johnny Van Zant - "Red White & Blue" (Live)



Red White & Blue (Live) is a recently unearthed live Van Zant show recorded in 06. It is the only concert recording in existence from the only tour by the brothers.


This song was originally written by Donnie and Johnny but recorded by Johnny and The Lynyrd Skynyrd Band. Here they perform it together as they had originally intended. Their collaboration together was a tribute to their late brother Ronnie. You can clearly hear Ronnie's 'Freebird" whistles in this song after the first chorus.





Lyrics


We don't have no plastic L.A. Frynds,

ain't on the edge of no popular trend.

Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine GQ.

We don't care if you 're a lawyer, or a texas oil man,

or some waitress busting ass in some liquor stand.

If you got Soul

We hang out with people just like you


My hair's turning white,

my neck's always been red,

my collar's still blue,

we've always been here

just trying to sing the truth to you.

Yes you could say

we've always been,

Red, White, and Blue


Ride our own bikes To Sturgis

we pay our own dues,

smoking camels, drinking domestic BREWS

You want to know where I have been

just look at my hands

Yeah, I've driven by the White House,

Spent some time in jail.

Momma cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail.

I ain't been no angel,

But even God, he understands.


My hair's turning white,

my neck's always been red,

my collar's still blue,

we've always been here

just trying to sing the truth to you.

Yes you could say

we've always been,

Red, White, and Blue


Yeah that's right!


My Daddy worked hard, and so have I,

paid our taxes and gave our lives

to serve this great country

so what are they complaining about


Yeah we love our families, we love our kids

you know it is love that makes us all so rich

That's where were at,

If they don't like it they can just

get the HELL out!


Yeah!


My hair's turning white,

my neck's always been red,

my collar's still blue,

we've always been here

just trying to sing the truth to you.

Yes you could say

we've always been,

Red, White, and Blue


oh..oh..Red, White, and Blue....


Red, White, and Blue


oh..oh....Red, White, and Blue
