Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesday's Gone - 1973




"Tuesday's Gone" is the second track on Lynyrd Skynyrd's first album, (Pronounced 'lĕh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd). It also appears on the band's first live LP, One More from the Road.


Al Kooper adds upfront Mellotron string sounds to the chorus of the song. It is one of a few Lynyrd Skynyrd songs on which Bob Burns, one of the original founding members and drummer, did not play. Atlanta Rhythm Section's drummer Robert Nix played on the studio version. Bob Burns, however, can be heard playing on the demo version from the same session.

Lyrics


Train roll on, on down the line,

Won't you please take me far away?

Now I feel the wind blow outside my door,

Means I'm leaving my woman behind.

Tuesday's gone with the wind.

My woman's gone with the wind.


And I don't know where I'm going.

I just want to be left alone.

Well, when this train ends I'll try again,

But I'm leaving my woman at home.


Tuesday's gone with the wind.

Tuesday's gone with the wind.

Tuesday's gone with the wind.

My woman's gone with the wind.


Train roll on many miles from my home,

See, I'm riding my blues away.

Tuesday, you see, she had to be free

But somehow I've got to carry on.


Tuesday's gone with the wind.

Tuesday's gone with the wind.

Tuesday's gone with the wind.

My woman's gone with the wind.
