He looked to be sixty, and maybe I was ten 
Mama used to whip me but I'd go see him again 
I'd clap my hands, stomp my feets, try to stay in time 
He'd play me a song or two 
Then take another drink of wine.

On the day old Curtis died, nobody came to pray 
Ol' preacher said some words, and they chunked him in the clay 
But he lived a lifetime playin' the black man's blues 
And on the day he lost his life, that's all he had to lose

The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006, with members Gary Rossington and Billy Powell, former members Ed King, Bob Burns, and Artimus Pyle, and deceased members Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins, Steve Gaines, and Leon Wilkeson.
