Skynyrd 
1974 MCA Records Inc.  MCA-40258(MC 2685) produced by Al Kooper
From the MCA LP "Second Helping" MCA-413
the basic riff is as follows

D|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
A|---5---5---r-------|---3---3---r-------|-------------------|----------3--------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|---3---3---r-------|---3---3-----------|

[which becomes]
    q   q   h           q   q   h           q   q   h           e e e e q  q

those two riffs alternate in the verse.
