Ricky Van Shelton – Simple Man lyrics

I don't know why you wanna start with me
I ain't done nothin' far as I can see
And I'm warn out from working too hard
Why don't you give me a break

I know that lately things ain't been so good
I'll make it up just like I told you I would
But I'm tired and I wanna sit down
To ease a sore backache

You say you're having trouble figuring me
I don't believe I'm such a mystery
Baby what you get is what you see
I am a simple man
I wanna a job and a piece of land
Three squares in my frying pan
Don't seem so hard to me to understand
I am a simple man

You say you got some things to talk about
A lot of problems that we need to work out
But we just end up fighting
Why don't you give it a rest
I don't know what else I can say to you
I'm doing everything I know to do
And I can't give you anything more
When I'm giving my best

You say you're having trouble figuring me
I don't believe I'm such a mystery
Baby what you get is what you see
I am a simple man
I wanna place I can lay my head
Soft woman and a warm bed
A little time off before I'm dead
I'm just a simple man

You say you're having trouble figuring me
I don't believe I'm such a mystery
Baby what you get is what you see
I am a simple man
