Shinedown – Simple Man lyrics

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
Oh baby

Oh 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 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

You get your lust from 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 you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh won't you do this for me son 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

So baby be a simple, be a simple man
Oh won't you do this for me son if you can

    This song says what I feel from my heart. I like shinedown's version even better than skynrd. I picked this song to dance with my son at his wedding and everyone was commenting what a great song. I think it touches everyone's soul. I still listen to it and I have another son getting married in about 2 years and asked him if he would mind if we danced to it again! (we will see) lol.
