Lynyrd Skynard vs. The Allman Brothers Band

I'm still looking for suggestions for my upcoming Drinking Song Poll, but on my way in to work this morning, I had another idea for a poll. This poll pits two great bands of the Southern Rock tradition againt each other. They're competing on the merits of different songs, but it's essentially the same song.

Poll #315590 Lynyrd Skynard vs. The Allman Brothers

Whis is a better song?

Gimmie Three Steps by Lynyrd Skynard
13(76.5%)
One Way Out by The Allman Brothers Band
4(23.5%)

As always, use the comments to justify your answer.

[Update: In case you might not be familiar with these songs, I hunted down the lyrics: Gimmie Three Steps and One Way Out. I also reproduced them under the following cut tags.]
