"Take Your Time" is a song by southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. The song was recorded "in early 1973" at Studio One, Doraville, Georgia, and was the B-side to the "Sweet Home Alabama" single.[1] However it was not featured on any album until the compilation album Legend in 1987. It is also featured on the 1997 re-release of Second Helping with bonus tracks.[2] It was written by Ronnie Van Zant and Ed King.

It was also the B-side to "Don't Ask Me No Questions" in 1974


It's a typical up-tempo blues, a pastiche of "Shame, Shame, Shame" by Jimmy Reed.
