Alison Krauss – Simple Love lyrics
Little yellow house sittin' on a hill
That is where he lived
That is where he died
Every Sunday morning
Hear the weeping willows cry

Two children born
A beautiful wife
Four walls and livin's all he needed in life
Always giving, never asking back
I wish I had a simple love like that

I want a simple love like that
Always giving, never askin' back
For when I'm in my final hour lookin' back
I hope I had a simple love like that

My momma was his only little girl
If he'd had the money he'd have given her the world
Sittin' on the front porch together they would sing
Oh how I long to hear that harmony

I want a simple love like that
Always giving never asking back
When I'm in my final hour looking back
I hope I had a simple love like that

I want a simple love like that
Always giving never asking back
When I'm in my final hour looking back
I hope I had a simple love like that

    A simple reflection on the memory of a happy marriage. This is a song with a moral. Don't give to receive: give because it's right. Sadly this is an attitude which is somewhat endangered in the modern world.
    The bit about listening to the willows weeping on a sunday morning is interesting. I think it is telling us that he (her father) was a hard-working man who only had the one day a week to rest and rejuvenate himself by communing with nature. Perhaps there is also a christian angle here - the weeping being a reference to the crucifixion.
