Free Bird", or "Freebird", is a power ballad performed by American rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. The song was first featured on the band's debut album in 1973 and has been included on subsequent albums, including the unfaded-ending version of the original recording (featured on Skynyrd's Innyrds).

Like "Free Bird," "Layla" loses most of its mojo when cut down for single release. Skynyrd always plays this as the last song at their shows. The long version from the album has always been more popular. Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd was Lynyrd Skynyrd's first album. They gave it the title because they knew people would not be able to pronounce their name. This Southern Rock classic was produced by a northerner: Al Kooper, who discovered the band a year earlier when they were playing a gig in Atlanta. Kooper, a founding member of Blood, Sweat & Tears, is from Brooklyn, New York, but he gelled with Skynyrd, crafting their sound for wide appeal without diluting it. He produced their next two albums as well.

And this bird you cannot change And this bird you cannot change Lord knows I can't change. Bye bye, baby, it's been a sweet love yeah, yeah And though this feeling I can't change But please don't take this so badly 'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame. But if I stay here with you, girl Things just couldn't be the same 'Cause I'm as free as a bird now And this bird you cannot change Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. And this bird you cannot change And this bird you cannot change Lord knows I can't change Lord, help me, I can't change.

It made the charts on numerous occasions in both the . and UK but only reached in the .
