SIMPLE MAN
Lynyrd Skynyrd

"Mama told me when I was young
Come 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
Oh, take your time... Don't live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
Go find a woman, oh baby, you'll find love
And don't forget son
There is someone up above

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

Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
All that you need, is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for 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

Boy, don't you worry... You'll find yourself
Follow your heart, lord, and nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for 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..."
