Lynyrd Skynyrd Was I Right Or Wrong Lyrics

Last updated: 03/27/2007 11:00:00 AM

Gary Rossington and Ronnie Van Zant

Like a restless leaf, in the autumn breeze
Once I was a tumblin’ weed
Like a rollin’ stone, cold and all alone
Living for the day my train would come
Never cared for school or any golden rules
Papa used to always say I was a useless fool
So I left my home to show ’em they was wrong
And headed out on the road singing my song
Then one sunny day, the man, he looked my way
And everything that I dreamed of, it was real
Money, girls and cars, and big long cigars
And I caught the first plane home so papa would see

When I went home to show ’em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Papa I only wish you could see me now
Take a listen papa

Whoo, I learnt how to play my guitar
Gonna be a superstar

Play one for momma now

First I got lost, then I got found
The ones I love are in the ground
Won’t you tell me please was I right or wrong

If there’s any way you can hear what I say
Papa, I never meant to do you wrong
All the money, girls and cars and all the world’s long cigars
Papa, I just want you to know they couldn’t take your place

When I went home to show ’em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
