One More from the Road (Styled as "One More For From The Road") is a live album by Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. It marked the band's first live album, and the only live album from the "classic" era of the band (1970–1977) prior to the plane crash that killed lead singer/songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, as well as band members Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines. The album was released in September 1976. It was certified Gold on 10/26/1976, Platinum on 12/30/1976 and 3x Platinum on 7/21/1987 by the RIAA.

The original 14 tracks include a cover of Jimmie Rodgers' "T for Texas" and a 13:30 version of "Free Bird".

The first CD release (1986) was a single disc missing two tracks, T For Texas and Travellin' Man, due to time constraints.

The second CD release (1996) was a two disc set with all 14 songs plus 3 Bonus Tracks. Sweet Home Alabama, Gimme Back My Bullets and Simple Man. The two disc set put the tracks in order of the appearance of the original concert.

The Deluxe Edition, released in 2001, is thoroughly remastered and contains additional performances from the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia.
