Simple As Dirt
(Tommy Conners/Phillip White)

After The Storm

Been like a rollin' wheel
In these fertile fields
Since I was five years old
Between then and now
I bet I've pulled this plow
About a million miles or so
I have never been nowhere
Oh but I don't care
To me there is no where else to go
And in all and all I am
Its just who I am
It's as complicated as new plowed earth
Simple as dirt

CHORUS
I love my wife and kids just like my daddy did
And my daddy's dad before
And their philosophy was handed down to me
Life is as easy as a hard days work
Simple as dirt

Well I live my life one day at a time
That's the only way I know
Oh lord I have paid my debts and have no regrets
And I reap the things I sow
And I'll keep pulling weeds and planting seeds
Until I reach the end of the road
But you can lay me down
This familiar ground
And on my stone carve just three words
Simple as dirt

CHORUS

Been like a rollin' wheel
Through these fertile fields
Since I was five years old
