Swamp Music -- by Lynyrd Skynyrd

I figured out the lyrics and chords very quickly on this.  The basics of 
the song sound simple and can be played effectively with an acoustic.  
The rockin' electric jams are another story however!!  Any corrections or 
flames email me at [email protected]

Chords: E-A-B7

Well I want to live with the hound dogs, for the rest of my natural born
