     Lynyrd Skynyrd released their sixth album, Street Survivors, on October 17, 1977. Three days after, the band was traveling between shows in Greenville, South Carolina and Baton Rouge, Louisiana when their chartered plane crashed near Gillsburg, Mississippi. The cause of the crash was speculated to have been caused by several things, including mechanical failure and running out of fuel.

No matter what the cause, three people died (vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gains and backing vocalist Cassie Gaines) and the rest of the band was injured.

The cover of the Street Survivors album depicted the band surrounded in flames, which was so upsetting to the surviving band members, it was quickly changed by the record company. Perhaps because of this tragedy, the album turned out to be one of the band's best sellers.

Lyrics to What's Your Name:

Well, its 8 o'clock in Boise, Idaho
I'll find my limo driver
Mister, take us to the show
I done made some plans for later on tonight
I'll find a little queen
And I know I can treat her right.
 
What's your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Won't you do the same?
 
Back at the hotel
Lord we got such a mess
It seems that one of the crew
Had a go with one of the guests, oh yes
Well, the police said we can't drink in the bar
What a shame
Won't you come upstairs girl
And have a drink of champagne
 
What's your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
For there ain't no shame.
 
Solo
 
What's your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Won't you do the same?
 
9 o'clock the next day
And I'm ready to go
I got six hundred miles to ride
To do one more show, oh no
Can I get you a taxi home
It sure was grand
When I come back here next year
I wanna see you again
 
What was your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Well there ain't no shame
What was your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Won't you do the same?
