51 Years And Goin’ Strong

From 2012 album Last of a Dyin’ Breed, Skynyrd’s track represents the legacy they have continued to carry with them for over 50 years of sweet, southern rockin’ and good times. Performing “Last Of A Dyin’ Breed” live on Fox’s All- American Summer Stage, the group rocks their southern roots all over New York City’s face and it’s awesome.

Interesting Quote: “When we were writing that song, we had about 100 different names for it. I just thought of that line, as a last resort, and it ended up really fitting the band and what we’re doing now.” – Gary Rossington

With the largest audience of the summer, wrapped down the block, the talented southern rock group brings the heat to stage with Johnny delivering excellent vocals, pumpin’ up the already amped crowd. With meaningful lyrics set to the killer beat, “Last Of A Dyin’ Breed” voices how the guys feel about owning the stage all these years later.

Mentioning Ronnie in the song with the lines “A barefoot brother who gave me hell, I learned from the best who taught me well,” this ballad clearly holds a lot of emotion and significance to Johnny, keeping his brother’s dream alive and thriving, along with his greatest friends growing up. What an epic way to honor your brother, Johnny.

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd & Second Helping Live’ is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats – it’s the perfect gift for the Lynyrd Skynyrd fan in your life. Buy it here on Amazon!

 

+ Last Of A Dyin’ Breed Lyrics +

Oh Yeah!

Got a pocket full of memories and my song
Got to keep on movin’ and rollin’ on
When I’m playin’ for keeps, I always win
Don’t know where I’m going, but I know where I’ve been
Yeah!

Looking back when I was a boy
A hand-me-down bike was my toy
A barefoot brother who gave me hell
I Learned from the best who taught me well

I hear that highway callin’!

Oh, feel the breeze…
I’ve been around playin’ and gamblin’ but Lord I’m free
Saddle up baby, ride up close to me
An open highway’s all I’ll ever need
Last of A Dyin’ Breed
Last of A Dyin’ Breed

One horse towns and one night stands
Just like my daddy – I’m a Travelin’ Man
I’m not the kind to settle down
The roar of the engine – I love that sound

I hear that highway callin’!

Oh, feel the breeze…
I’ve been around playin’ and gamblin’ but Lord I’m free
Saddle up baby, ride up close to me
An open highway’s all I’ll ever need
Last of A Dyin’ Breed

Last of a Dyin’ Breed

Oh, feel the breeze…
I’ve been around playin’ and gamblin’ but Lord I’m free
Yeah Saddle up baby, ride up close to me
An open highway’s all I’ll ever need
Yeah a wide open highway’s all I’ll ever need
Last of A Dyin’ Breed
Last of A Dyin’ Breed
Oh Yeah!
Last of A Dyin’ Breed
