Simple Man

Simple ManShinedown (Original by Lynyrd Skynyrd)

Well Mama told me, when I was young
Said sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this, it’ll help you some sunny day

Ah, yeah it will

Or take your time, don’t live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
You’ll find a woman and you’ll find love
And don’t forget that there is a someone up above

Be a simple kind of man
Be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Oh won’t you do this for me, son, if you can?
If you can

Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
All that you need now is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want from you, my son, is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be something that you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Oh won’t you do this for me, son, if you can?
If you can

Oh don’t you worry
You’ll find yourself
Follow your heart
And nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want from you, my son, is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Oh won’t you do this for me, son, if you can?
If you can
So be a simple, a simple kind of man
Oh won’t you do this for me, son, if you can?
