Simple Man – Lynyrd Skynyrd

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 will help you, some sunny day
ah, yeah it will.

oh take your time
don’t live too fast
troubles will come
and they will pass
find a woman and you’ll find love
and don’t forget son, there is someone up above
and be a simple kind of man
oh 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
