The Boys Are Back In Town!

As the first track on their comeback album, 1991, “Smokestack Lightning” functions as their formal re-introduction into the industry, bringing upbeat southern vocals and a good time back to the world. With other tracks like “Southern Women” and “End Of The Road,” Lynyrd Skynyrd’s 1991 album earned a 3 out of 5 stars from Rolling Stone.

Interesting Fact: The album reunited Lynyrd Skynyrd with producer Tom Dowd and mixer Kevin Olsen, the band’s sound man from the 70’s.

As the first to introduce Johnny, re-introduce Ed King and the last to say goodbye to Artimus Pyle, 1991 was a huge moment for the southern rock band that never gave up. Featuring the band’s surviving members at the time, the video displays Skynyrd jammin’ out in their garage studio, enjoying one another’s talents and the music; just like the old days.

If there were ever a music video that would launch the southern rock legacy back into the world of music, that displayed their dedication, persistence and passion, this was it. Watching this fun loving, vibrant and exciting video of the boys performing an awesome new Skynyrd classic, fans were excited once again to see what Lynyrd Skynyrd could bring to the table.

+ Smokestack Lightning Lyrics +

I was sittin’ at home all alone when I heard that telephone ring
And there on the line was a friend of mine sayin’ he wasn’t doin’ a thing
So I’m steppin’ out on the town tonight to party where the drinks are free
There’s a sweet young thing ready and waitin’ on me

Young and fine, strike you blind
Smokestack lightnin’ make you lose your mind
She’s got looks that kill can fire at will
Smokestack lightnin’ she’s all I need

When we got to the place I got me a taste
I knew she’d be good for a game
Dancin’ out on the floor she was ready for more
She knew all the boys by their names
I said hey sweet thing let me pull your string
Let me take you home
I woke up in a hour with my money and my memory gone.

Young and fine, strike you blind
Smokestack lightnin’ make you lose your mind
She’s got looks that kill can fire at will
Smokestack lightnin’ she’s all I need

Young and fine strike you blind smokestack lightnin’

Young and fine, strike you blind
Smokestack lightnin’ make you lose your mind
She’s got looks that kill can fire at will
Smokestack lightnin’ she’s all I need
