You Got That Right

This morning I was listening to WXRT and heard, “You Got That Right” and felt sad. It’s by Lynyrd Skynyrd. My father was their lead guitarist. While on tour in 1977, their tour plane crashed and he died. When I heard the song I cried and went back in time.

I remember when I was nine and traveled with the band. My dad used to call me out onto the stage and I would dance to that song. The audience went wild. I felt like I was part of the band.

When I got back to town I told my friends that I missed school because I was touring as a member of Lynyrd Skynyrd. They didn’t believe me. Then the band did a show at Cleveland Stadium that weekend and I there I was onstage dancing to “You Got That Right.” They flipped out.
