Simple Man
 
 

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 will help you some sunny day
Take your time... Don't live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
Go 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
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 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
And nothing else
You can do this
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?

Baby, be a simple, be a simple man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man

Lyrics by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington.
Recorded by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
