Skynyrd song had more to it, van zandt is better vocalist as well
Its cool though that they are both from the same city

This is a good cover but you folks saying it's better than the original are on crack lol. The Skynyrd version is a classic. This is just a good cover, but by no means touches the original.
I love this song
Good cover
Actually a hella good cover
Good song.

Beautifull song it is a real poem.And that is muy mam tall me
Skynyrd only BC it's the original but I say this one better. I'm still crying inside. Listening to monster now tho
Shinedown definitely does it better...

This is a great cover I luv the original also there both good :)
Well yeah, people, Lynyrd sang it better. But this is about as perfect as a cover can get. Sorta like how Pantera did Walk and A7X did a great cover. The original is USUALLY better (with the exception of Behind Blue Eyes) than the cover because they did it first
For all the mamas who have boy or guys be a simple kind of man its goes for ladies and little girls always respect urself and respect ur love one I'm just a kind of simple woman who respects her self thanks to my parents cuz without u I won't be here love ya
but-but Lynyrd Skynyrd...

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this do don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this so scary because it actually works
